Maths resources for parents
Following feedback from parents/ carers, one recurring theme seems to be a fear of maths and supporting their child at home. So, Welsh Government have engaged with numeracy experts in Wales to produce a selection of maths resources aimed at 3 to 16 year olds to encourage parents/carers to engage with their children and support them with their maths homework.
2050 debating toolkit
2050 debating toolkit has now been launched by the DECC to support the 2050 simulation tool. It includes resources for activities and workshops – example lesson plans, curriculum links (including some interesting maths ideas linked to sustainability).

Junior Tax Facts
Junior Tax Facts explains to children, in very simple terms, what tax is and why it is needed – to provide the money to pay for the things that are essential to them, their families, communities and society as a whole. The programme consists of a short animated video, available on YouTube, supported by a comprehensive teachers’ pack, with lesson plans and interactive exercises, available to view or download from the TES website. The video is also available on DVD – simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send out as many copies as are needed.
All the material, including DVDs, is available free of change.
HMRC has produced an award-winning tax education programme for secondary school pupils age 14 to 17. Tax Facts was named ‘Best Free Educational Product of the Year’ in the 2016 Education Resources Awards. There are four YouTube Tax Facts, and the supporting teachers’ pack is also on the TES website.
For more information or to request the video on DVD email email@example.com.
