"Have you got a book that explains chunking and number bonds?"

It was back to school last week and this week, and since the Summer we've had a great book on display entitled "Maths for Mums & Dads". It is written by Rob Eastaway and Mike Askew - and for any parent who has suddenly discovered that primary schools 'don't teach maths like they used to', and are getting awkward questions from their children, come in and have a look at it. It's a great resource, and some schools in the local areas are recommending it to parents.

Rob Eastaway has also written a great piece on the challenge to Mums and Dads today on the BBC main website - it explains some of the changes that have occurred and what parents might do to deal with it. - and is well worth a read...
