Home Learning

The children are now confidently learning maths using Maths Makes Sense, in the classroom, but… we need your help! To give children the best chance of becoming confident mathematicians, they need repeated practice with basic number skills. They need to know these skills by heart and to be able to use them easily. Maths Makes Sense provides a set of simple, fun games for children to play at home with you. They use dominoes, dice and playing cards. By playing these games at home, children will become more and more confident with number work, and they will enjoy showing you how to play the games!

Each game has a set of simple instructions for you and your child. Some of the games have been played in school, so your child may be able to show you what to do!

To access the games, please click on the relevant year group below.

We hope you enjoy playing them!
