Age Range: All

Author: Cassandra Lowry


As a parent your role is not to replace the teacher. You are a key role model in your child’s life and your aim should be to support your child, so they see the value of learning.

Here are some simple tips to help you get started:

  • Avoid telling your child you ‘hate maths’ or ‘maths is not important’
  • Ask questions to help promote your child’s thinking
  • Remember it’s ok to not know something – investigate unfamiliar topics together
  • If the activity seems boring – change it
  • Play games, mix things up and enjoy the learning
