The Single Most Useful Ninja Maths Accessory at Home is…

A whiteboard.

It’s outrageously useful for:

Explaining, rubbing out, explaining again

Getting the child to re-write what you’ve just written so they can explain it to you

Leaving extra Ninja Maths homework up on the board

Just-before-bedtime explanations of things like the planets, fractions, a thunderstorm and the difference in speed between light and sound (so you know when it’s time to duck)

Drawing up “Happy Birthday” and adding flowers or robots

Homework planning – e.g. creative writing: who, where, when, why etc

I can’t over-emphasise how essential the home (magnetic) whiteboard has become.
