Today the Scottish Government have launched the new Read, Write, Count campaign, which aims to spread the message that parents, carers and families have a key role to play in children’s development of both literacy and numeracy.
Children in the first three years of Primary School will receive a gift of books and literacy and numeracy learning materials through their school. Follow this link for more information:
This is an ideal opportunity to build links with home and reinforce the message that maths and numeracy are an important part of our everyday lives! Have a look at the website for lots of ideas to share with children and parents on how they can learn important numeracy skills as part of daily routines, games and fun activities:
Why not go through some of the activities included in the pack with your class if you have a Primary 1-3? Or include some of the ideas for home learning? Just talking about how we use numeracy in our lives at home is a great way to encourage children to go home and share their learning with their parents! Have a look at the Parents page too for lots more links and ideas:
It would be great to hear comments on how you have supported parents in your setting to develop their child’s learning!
