Mathematics programmes of study: key stages 1 and 2
It is crucial that children realise that Maths is all around us and not just something learnt in school. Here are some ideas for helping your child to use Maths in practical ways at home. Please note that, depending on their age and level of mathematical understanding, not all these suggestions will be suitable for your child.
Counting such things as toys, sweets, items.
When cooking and baking, children could be encouraged to help weighing out ingredients or measuring liquids.
When cutting things such as pizza or cake you could discuss the portions in terms of fractions using language such as half, quarter, eighth. Older children could use this as an opportunity to explore equivalent fractions or to compare fractions (for example ½ is more than ¼).
Discuss shapes around the home and when you are out and about. Consider properties such as number of sides, edges or faces. Look for items in and around the home which are symmetrical.
Sharing sweets, food or toys.
Talking about the time. This could include discussing the current time, what time it will be an hour later, how long is it until bedtime etc. Use a stopwatch to time how long it takes to do everyday activities such as getting dressed.
When out shopping, discuss the cost of items, look for special offers and discuss how much money you could save.
If you are undertaking any DIY, involve your child in measuring the materials.
Counting with money using actual coins.
For children with a secure understanding of time, you could share a bus timetable with them and discuss such things as how long it is until the next bus, how long the journey will take etc. Use a TV guide to work out how long your child’s favourite TV programme is. Calculate how much time your child spends watching TV.
Encourage children to consider how much things cost and how much change you will get.
