Further learning at home
This is more of an interactive learning experience than a set of maths games. Children click on a skill they would like to learn eg. ‘How to multiply and divide by 0, 1, 10 and 100’ which takes them to a learning page. There they find a video teaching them the skill beneath which are step-by-step written instructions. Each written instruction is accompanied by an interactive activity so children can practise what they have learnt at each stage.
If children are having difficulty mastering a particular mathematical concept at school then this is a particularly useful website to explore.
Nrich is a Cambridge University initiative which aims to develop both children’s mathematical thinking and their problem-solving skills. These games or ‘interactives’ are aimed at primary aged children and they really do challenge children’s thinking because even the instructions can be difficult to understand, retain and follow.
We recommend trying activities yourself before suggesting them to your children in order to avoid frustration.
