Mathematical Stories

The use of storytelling could be another effective  way of learning maths while keeping your child firmly engaged with what they are doing. What’s more – this strategy is not limited to just pre-school children, but is applicable to those in primary schools and beyond too. There are lots of stories for all age groups that can be accessed and used to help with the learning of mathematical concepts, details of these can be found on the Maths Through Stories website (https://www.mathsthroughstories.org/). As well as some suggestions of possible books to share with your child there are lots of suggestions about how to engage your child through the sharing of a story. If you do find a book that you think that your child would like to read please remember that we can always check the ATOS level of the book so that it may become part of your child's Accelerated Reader home learning.  Please use your child's pahse email to contact staff if you need help with this.
