By engaging in maths as a family during the holidays and pointing it out in the real world, we are showing kids that maths is more than just a school subject and helping them build more positive attitudes towards numbers.
Doing this year-round can make children more motivated to learn and positively influence their attainment at school.
If you’re worried that you aren’t confident enough with numbers yourself (don’t worry, a lot of parents and carers feel that way), rest assured, you don’t have to be an eggs-pert to support your loved ones. Just being present and involved can make all the difference.
