The summer holidays are finally here for blog readers in the Southern Hemisphere, interestingly, those in the Northern Hemisphere on winter holiday breaks may find this information just as useful. Children are happy to be home, playing with friends and enjoying the sunshine. We know you don’t want to think about going back to school yet and neither do your children. After all, there’s still plenty of time left to unwind over the holidays. But did you know students can experience up to two months of maths learning loss over the summer holidays?

A great way to help ease the summer slide is to keep your learners’ brains active by incorporating a little bit of maths at home throughout the school holidays. Just a few activities per week will keep students sharp and help them to get back into the swing of things next year.

No idea where to start? Mathletics has got you covered. Simply head over to our learning resource hub for fun, educational activities to share with your child. There’s plenty of printable resources and games, which are a great way to get interactive and give your learner a break from their devices for a while.

That’s not all though. In the summer, we don’t always want students to feel like they are learning so we designed a handy booklet that contains plenty of simple ideas to get the brain thinking about maths, whether you’re around the home, out shopping or playing sports.
