Helping with Maths Top Tips

At Ley Hill School, our Growth Mindset philosophy is embedded in all curriculum areas. As parents, you can help model how to be resilient, resourceful, reflective, reciprocal and reconnecting with your approach to numbers. If you are positive and interested in all areas of maths, including numbers, puzzles and problems, the enthusiasm will rub off and your child will engage in the subject too. When your child is learning maths in a way that you are not familiar with, then be honest and then get them to explain how they are doing it in school. This will help them to embed what they have learned.
