Helping Your Child with Maths

Maths is an important part of life. We believe all children at Hemlington Hall Academy work exceptionally hard to understand new concepts and use their knowledge to solve problems and explain why mathematically.

Maths can be great fun!

Why should I play maths games with my child?

Children make progress best as mathematicians when they regularly repeat skills and practise them until they become embedded. This can be quite a long process sometimes, and so the use of the context of an exciting game or interesting activity can be highly motivating. In our experience, our children learn best when they are having fun and that’s what games are for!
