FCL mathematics booking now for January

Children who are good at maths at the age of nine (third class) are more likely to be more confident going into secondary school.

It is evident that fostering foundational skills in maths at primary level was crucial to a later positive engagement with the subject.

Do not leave it until secondary school to get help with maths

This is the advice for all parents of primary school children who are experiencing difficulties at school with this core subject. Frank Murphy, manager of FCL Galway, explains that one of the keys to success in maths is having a solid fluency in the foundational maths skills that are taught in primary school.
