We all want children to feel confident with numbers, even if we struggle with maths ourselves. Everyone can help children with maths – you don't need to be an expert. One of the best ways to support your children’s learning is to get them using maths while doing something they love, such as baking!

Peter said: "I know lots of children love to bake, but what many people don’t realise, is that maths is actually the magic ingredient in all my baking! From weighing out ingredients to managing the cooking times, having the confidence to use numbers helps me perfect my showstopping bakes."
