Our popular parental engagement site the Parent Toolkit has completed its pilot phase and has been given a makeover. The brand new National Numeracy Family Maths Toolkit went live on Monday 14th September and is packed with help for parents and schools, including:
- Tips for parents on talking to teachers and engaging with their child's learning
- Help for adults to improve their maths skills
- Games and puzzles
- Help for families to have fun doing maths together
New Family Maths Activities and Scrapbooks are available to accompany the website. The scrapbooks contain weekly challenges for families and children to do together to solve everyday maths problems, each of which are linked to events on the school and cultural calendar.
Later this month the Family Maths Toolkit will be put in to action with over 20 schools when work gets started between National Numeracy and the Mayor’s Fund for London on the ‘Count on Us’ Parental Engagement project.
