Parent Guides to Supporting Maths at Home
The following videos demonstrate ways of developing pupils' maths skills at home.
In this 'Number Recognition' video, we ask, "How many ways can you show me 5?" This helps children to show that they understand the value of a number and to count using one-to-one correspondence (touching each item as they count it).
