How you can help -
1. let your child explore using different size measuring jugs or containers. Point out the graduation marks. Show measurements of liquids when shopping by looking at product labels, point out ml and L as units of measure.
2. Make sure your child is familiar with coins and notes. They should know that 5 pennies is the same value as 5p 100 pennies is the same as £1 etc. Use money to play shop games, ask your child to spend a given amount in a shop game, asking how much change they would get from £1 £2.
3. Talk to your child about time, using years, months, weeks, days, hours and minutes. set a timer so they get a practical sense of 1 minute. You can play a time game where you set a challenge to be completed in a given time. Look at analogue and digital times, note times of the day, such as breakfast, bedtime etc.
