Lisnagry Parents Numeracy Booklet

It is hoped that use of the information in this booklet will help you, our parents by giving you an insight into the way number topics are being taught to your children in the school, making it easier for you to help them with their homework, and as a result improve their progress.

The purpose of this booklet is to outline the various calculation methods that children are taught as they progress through the school, many of which look different to the methods that you may have been taught in your primary school days. As children progress through the school, they are building up a bank of strategies that can be applied when appropriate. Each strategy can be refined or extended to suit the calculation needed. We hope the explanations and examples of strategies will help you to assist your child at home.

Included in the booklet are also various ideas and suggestions for maths activities that you can enjoy doing with your child in the world away from school. It is not an exhaustive list and you will doubtless have many more ideas of your own.

The booklet is available to download from the parents tab or from the link below.  We hope you find it useful.
