As well as giving advice on how to help your child with maths, the Help Your Child With Numeracy books give clear explanations of methods used today to teach maths. Here are some of the things parents have said about the books:
Mother of child in Reception,
‘I love the books, they are very pleasing to the eye, very easy to understand, nice illustrations and the right amount of pages.’
Mother of a child in Year 1,
(My son) straight away started asking me what the pictures were about and has brought it to me several times since!!
I have to say I am genuinely loving it and finding it really easy to read and enlightening. I have definitely been keener with our maths practice! I really feel reassured by what I’m reading, so thank you! We’ll let you know how we get on as we go along. I can see I’m going to get a brain-stretching re-learning experience as I help (my son) – I learnt procedures by memory at school much more than understanding what I was doing. Didn’t expect to be suddenly learning what maths is really about at this stage :)!
