Primary 7 Welcome Evening and Making Maths Count

It was great to meet the parents and families of our Primary 7 children last night and we are looking forward to working with them in the future.

Please follow the link to a numeracy support pack from our maths department.  It includes some numeracy tasks that parents can do with their children.  Sharing in your child’s learning helps them to develop confidence.  This pack should give you some activities that you can enjoy with your child while helping them develop numeracy skills.  Numeracy skills are essential in all areas of the curriculum and in everyday life.
