Helping with Mathematics at home!

Welcome to our Mathematics section of the website.


This section will give you an insight into the Mathematics and Numeracy activities which the children in St. Joseph's take part in on a daily basis.  We will also upload resources to this area which will help you support your children at home.


Numeracy Parent Sessions

We held 3 parent sessions focussing on ways which you can help your child at home with maths led by Timothy Doyle.  In each of the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 sessions Timothy shared strategies and games which can be used with children in each age group. Thank you to all the parents who came along to find out more about the concepts that their children are learning and how they can help them at home. Mrs Lavender-Campbell attended the training, this is her feedback:

“These meetings are a fantastic opportunity to learn fun and rewarding methods to progress your child's understanding of maths. Such basic skills are easy to apply and will last a lifetime. Maths teaching strategies have changed throughout the generations. Timothy the tutor of this course has a natural ability to share today's concepts with ease. Very worthwhile, if you want to help your children, by keeping yourself up to date with techniques of value to them now.”

If you were unable to attend and would like a copy of the information booklet pease speak to Miss Keenan.
