Maths parents club
Weekly 30-mins meetings with parents that focus on a specific maths topic, such as counting, addition, subtractions, etc. Those meetings are designed to create a community where parents can both learn about how children learn maths and share their experiences on how to support mathematical development at home (e.g. activities, board games, books).
