Maths Games Library
There are all different types of maths games for you and your child to play at home, covering various areas of mathematics. We hope that by opening the games library we will not only be raising your child’s maths attainment but also creating an opportunity for you to spend quality time together.
Open: Once a fortnight
Where: On the tarmac area on your approach to the playground before collecting your child.
Please come and have a look at the exciting games that we have. You can keep the game at home till the following Monday.
After listening to parent and pupil feedback we have made some changes to the maths games library.
Inside each of the game packs you will find a review sheet, this is for your child to complete and return on the Monday with the game. Every review returned will be entered into a draw to receive a PRIZE at the end of every half term.
Please ensure that all games are returned in the condition that they are lent out so that we can continue to run the library. In the event that you do loan a game that has items missing, you will find in the maths game pack a form, please complete so that we can keep an audit of the games.
We ask that you are with your child to sign the game out. If your child goes to the Kids Club, but would like to take out a game, then please fill in the form below.
5 Reasons to Borrow a Game
- BUILD YOUR SKILLS - We have over 150 games in our maths library and all of them have an educational value. However, it’s not just about the national curriculum, it’s also about those interpersonal skills. If your child struggles with waiting or turn taking, always wants to win and struggles when they lose, playing board games can help your child learn those skills.
- BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER - In our busy lives it can sometimes be tricky to have a conversation without screens. Sitting down and playing a fun game can help conversations to start. Some of our games involve problem solving and can help promote team work
- LIFT YOUR MOOD - Playing a game can be a great mood booster; enjoy playing with your children and watch the excitement. Their excitement is infectious.
- BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE - It really isn't the winning that matters, it’s all about trying your best. The more you play a game the better you get at it. Lots of games involve dice and can be a great way to get your child to learn simple addition, number bonds or doubles. Who doesn't love a double 6?
- THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. - Our maths games library has games for all abilities and ages throughout the school.
How it works
- Choose you game from the selection on offer.
- Play the game over the weekend.
- Fill in the slip, let us know what you think and if anything was missing.
- Return it to school—drop it in the collection box located outside by the entrance gate.
- All returned games are then quarantined before going back into stock.
- Your completed review slip is then popped into a draw where you could win a prize at the end of term.
We look forward to seeing you in the Maths Games Library
