As a result of school and nursery closure we are aware that as parents/carers you may be worried about how your children will learn over the coming weeks.
Please do not panic about providing the curriculum for your children in the way settings do.
Remember that maths and numeracy is in many real life applications. Being confined to the home gives an opportunity to share these through fun activities and play. These can be, and are not limited to, the following:
- age appropriate DIY
- creative pursuits – patterns and sequences
- board games, computer games, treasure hunts and puzzles

There is also a range of home maths activities on the Maths Week Scotland site which can be found here.

The Forth Valley and West Lothian Improvement Collaborative have also produced support materials for numeracy and maths distance learning. These can be found here.
