Really fabulous day in London …

Travelled up by train to London yesterday. The train was crowded with many parents and children taking advantage of the special half-term ticket promotion offer on tickets.

One family I saw passed the time away with the children playing cards. I was reminded how simple card games are an excellent, fun way to help your child with maths.

For example, they learn about sequences playing Patience, and Pontoon is good practice for the number bonds to 21, and for older children, gives insights on probability.

It really was a fabulous day in London …
