Number spotting!

There are numbers everywhere, and just by pointing them out and chatting to your child about them, they will learn lots about maths and how it works

See how many you can spot – and around you don’t usually notice?

And the different forms – clocks, house signs, addresses, phone numbers, recipes, games …

You might be surprised how often you use counting just running a home – see if you can do some of this out loud with your child!

Snakes and Ladders

As we all know at the moment, life has its ups and downs. Do you ever wonder how we learned to cope with them?

Schools are on holiday in Highland, so this week’s ideas are all about playing and fun.

But Snakes and Ladders is also a great way to understand numbers and how to count. At the same time, we learn how to cope with setbacks (even funny ones). And the whole family can play and feel together at this time.

Already know how to play? You’ll find some ideas here to make it more fun (and amuse your child for longer) by making your own board – or taking it outside and being “living pieces”!
