Learning at Home
To help with children’s learning, we would encourage them to consolidate their understanding of these facts and mental strategies. This selection builds the foundations of their learning to come.
A solid understanding of these can support children’s school learning and allow them to access the more complex elements of mathematics.
As is done in school, the teaching of these should be done through play. You may see examples of this type of activity on Tapestry to give inspiration for what could be done at home.
The BBC Numberblocks series can also support understanding of number: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/numberblocks
