Maths in play
Playing games will help your child to get better at maths. Play games like snakes and ladders, ludo or dominoes. Or, you can make up your own maths games.

Your favourite football striker is scoring in every game! His record for the first ten games of the season is: 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 4. What's his average number of goals in each game? Clue Add up all the goals and find the total number scored, then divide this number by the number of games played. That's your average!
