Maths at Home Shed.
This shed is designed to include resources for maths at home. Children spend a large part of their life at home with their parents and anything home can do to help children with their learning can be of great benefit. Many of the activities cannot be done in the school setting and many put maths in a real life context. We hope you find something of use here.
