How to support Maths at home
If your child is struggling with maths at home then a good place to start is to work on numbers to 100. Ordering numbers, saying which are bigger and smaller, counting on and back in 1s and 10s and basic addition and subtraction. They need to know pairs of numbers that add up to 10 and 20 as well as doubles and halves of numbers. Children also often struggle with fractions so being able to identify quarters and halves of shapes and amounts is helpful.
