With all children it is most important that they enjoy Mathematics. Young children (less than 5) naturally enjoy many activities that develop mathematical abilities - jigsaws and board games; sorting things into different categories; counting, weighing and measuring.
It is important to keep the fun of inquisitive discovery and problem solving alive for children as they encounter more formal mathematics at school.
As children reach the end of primary school, children need practice to do well in SATS or entrance exams, but should still have the chance to solve interesting problems - look at the nrich.maths.org site for inspiration.
