‘What you say counts’ – new numeracy campaign to support Maths learning, 04/03/14 [W]

A new campaign by the Welsh Government aims to improve numeracy in children aged 5-14 by encouraging their parents to be more positive about their own skills and the use of maths.

The empahsis of the ‘What you say counts’ campaign is to emphasise to adults that they already have good maths skills, becaue they use numeracy in everyday life. The Welsh Government wants parents, grandparents and other carers to stop saying things like “I can’t do maths” in front of children, and to be positive about maths as a useful skill and one that can help with jobs and life in the future.

As part of this campaign, a video and infographic have been produced, which can be accessed from the Learning Wales site, along with further details about the campaign, here: http://learning.wales.gov.uk/news/sitenews/what-you-say-counts/?lang=en.

In addition, a Facebook page also supports the campaign and is also updated with news and information: https://en-gb.facebook.com/whatyousaycounts.
