To help improve children’s skills, we’ve added three new supermarket games where children can practice and improve their maths:
We’ve carefully developed each game to include key elements of the maths curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2.
For Key Stage 3 and 4 we’ve launched Saving the Day where you can follow six characters facing financial conundrums. You’ll help them balance their wealth, health, happiness and time, by making lifestyle decisions for them to help avoid disaster!
As well as the website, we run a volunteer scheme for our own employees to work with pupils in local schools – Number Crunchers. It’s a variation on the more common ‘listening to a child reading’, where volunteers play maths games and support numeracy instead. Through regular sessions, volunteers are able to focus on the areas that help the child the most and see them progress over a period of time.
Last year we reached 83,000 young people with our education programmes and this year we want to reach even more, so why not try it out yourself by visiting www.nationwideeducation.co.uk.
