With most of the UK school children on lockdown, many parents and carers are having to turn their hand to teaching. This is a huge as of people that have no teaching experience and often struggle to get their children to sit still and concentrate like they do at school.

When it comes to maths or any lesson, it is important to try and make it fun. This will help keep the children’s interest and also help them take in what is being taught better.

Maths is one of those subjects that pupils either love or hate and this often comes down to whether they are good at it or not. Maths is a very important subject to do and is one of the main ones that you will use throughout your daily life.

For many students they simply find maths boring and therefore do not want to learn. When teaching younger children, you can often make maths fun by making the tasks more physical. So rather than being sat down working their way through a written task, why not go outside and use hop scotch as a way of counting. This not only gives the children a bit of excitement but will also help them to remember what is being taught.
