Aims and objectives
This is an excellent activity for parents and carers to use with
their children. The aim is to let parents know that they can do
maths and literacy activities with their children without the need
for special equipment. In fact parents can develop their child's
awareness of numeracy and literacy in the environment when they
are on the way to school.
No previous knowledge is needed
In the classroom
This activity is available in three languages; Urdu, Bengali and
English. Clicking on the language buttons replaces the text on the
start screen and throughout the activity pages. There is an English
version, Urdu version and a Bengali version. The default version
is the Bengali version.
From the start screen select 'Bengali', 'English' or 'Urdu' then
choose either 'Maths' or 'Literacy'. Scroll through the screens
using the back and forward buttons.
Teachers and helpers can use the activity prior to taking the children
outside on a mathematics or literacy trail. This activity can also
work well with larger groups of children with an interactive whiteboard
as a means to promote talk.
