Series Information
Series Name: Go For It Maths! Key Stage 1  Resources
Maths is too hard! Maths is boring! I don’t like maths! Sound familiar? Most young kids start out loving their new found maths skills, but repetitive practise of the same types of sums and questions can be counter productive and will eventually turn off enthusiastic young mathematicians. This series reinforces maths ideas by getting kids to use their knowledge and skills in lots of different ways. By playing number games, using reasoning and solving problems, students will see connections between different maths concepts and have the joy of discovering how maths and numbers work in the real world.
