Summer Saturdays with the Maths Mates is a 7-week programme each with a different theme exploring a range of mathematical ideas. Aimed at 4-12year olds, it can be used by families at home or by play leaders with children at holiday clubs or summer schemes.
Join Time Turtle, Decimal Dog and their Maths Mates crew as they voyage through a sea of fun and creative maths activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Beginning on Saturday 18th July and running until the end of August, each week Summer Saturdays will introduce you to a new hands-on activity. There’ll be craft, construction, puzzles, maps and games and you can do them in any order. You’ll need to head outdoors for some but we haven’t forgotten a few for those rainy days!
Supporting families this summer
Since the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent school closures, Maths Mates have increased their online content to help families with their home learning.
Their website has free family maths resources and activities including:
- A wide range of creative, crafty maths activities to download
- Maths on Toast Bites, a series of short ‘How to’ creative maths films – presented by children for children, with accompanying activity sheets
- A blog with ideas and tips about how to enjoy creative maths together, for example Five Golden Rules for Enjoying Maths, a guide to supporting children to explore and enjoy our activities.
