Maths for Grandparents
This is a proposed new group and will be started when we have at least 6 interested members
We have 1 member on the list so far
We intend to start at Key Stage 1 which is for 5-6 year olds and then progress through Key Stage 2 and 3 if members are interested.
Maths has changed a great deal since we were all at school.
Radlett and District started their group in 2019
Maths for Grandparents at Radlett & District U3A, Hertfordshire was set up so third agers could learn new maths techniques to help their grandchildren with their homework.
The course follows a SAT textbook over a year tackling a different subject at each fortnightly meeting. Finally, the members work through the SATS test together, discussing each question.
Former policewoman Joan Miller who set up the course said, “We started off wanting to help our grand-children but we learnt so much about ourselves and the process of learning”
