LIVERPOOL COUNTS

Liverpool Counts aims to raise standards in numeracy and mathematics by changing attitudes and perceptions through the delivery of the Liverpool Counts quality mark and the promotion of the importance of numeracy as a life skill through business links and cultural opportunities.

The agreed priorities of Liverpool Counts are as follows:

  • To raise standards in mathematics and numeracy with fun and joy of number at the heart of all aspects of the strategy
  • To challenge perceptions and change attitudes towards number and mathematics
  • To raise the profile of numeracy through a range of activities, events and resources with an emphasis on the application to real life contexts
  • To bring relevance to numeracy through problem solving set in local contexts
  • To enhance the delivery of the new national curriculum at all key stages and the early years foundation stage
  • To secure a shared understanding between the phases of education with an agreed common mathematical language and transition projects
  • To promote the use of technology to engage learners
  • To involve parents and the local business and cultural communities
  • To creating a sustainable legacy of a love of numbers

 

We will, therefore, be holding events to help everyone have fun and improve their mathematical skills.

 

The dates of events will be advertised on our website. Please help support us to achieve these aims.

LCQM ACCREDITATION VISIT

 

Only one week to go until we get the chance to welcome Lisa Baggaley one of the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark Assessors, into our amazing school and show off all of the fabulous things we have been doing to raise the profile of maths at Halsnead and to teach our children about Numeracy for life! We know she will be as proud of are school as we are!! 

WE ARE SO EXCITED!!! 

Some Fun Ideas to Teach Maths at Home!

Halsnead’s Hints for Parents and Families:

 

  1. Be positive about maths! Avoid saying things like “Maths is hard” or “I hated maths at school”. Even if it’s TRUE!!!! Think about the attitude you want your child to have about Maths. At Halsnead we encourage our children to have a ‘can do’ attitude.

 

  1. Show children how you use maths everyday! Include your child in activities involving maths such as using money, cooking and travelling.

 

  1. Praise your child for their effort! Research shows that anyone can be a successful mathematician as long as they keep working hard, they can always improve.

Helpful sites you can use at home:

This website includes lots of fun and interactive games for your children to play as well as a guide for parents supporting you with the following:

  • Key learning objectives for each year;
  • How calculation is taught;
  • How teaching has changed – the new order of learning.

 

Why not encourage your child to complete the following maths problems:
