Counting, measuring and sorting are important mathematical skills that are used in day to day life. There are many ways you can help your child find practical uses for maths each day. By counting steps, measuring ingredients for cooking or sorting things into colours, shapes and sizes, children are developing a foundational understanding of key mathematical concepts.
Games and stories that use counting, size or measurement are also a great way to use maths each day. Why not try water games to learn about volume and measurement?
By showing your own interest in maths and helping your child use their skills in everyday activities, you can help them develop an understanding and interest in maths at an early age.
