Creative Maths Teacher CPD - UK Wide
Our Creative Maths CPD and INSETs for Teachers include INSET days and twilights and have been delivered to thousands of teachers all over the country - and are based on methodologies and strategies that have been tried and tested with more than a quarter of a million children and young people!
There is much evidence to support the value of Learning Outside the Classroom and the positive impacts it can have on teaching and learning, and whenever we deliver our INSET's, staff can always recall their own wonderful outdoor memories. Our Outdoor Maths session involves investigating ways of utilising outdoor spaces as tangible maths resources, independent carousels, Maths Trails and Investigative Maths Bingo.
Combining expert opinion and a real sense of how we all feel and behave differently in the open air, this day supports staff in harnessing the outdoor space at your school for maths.
“Very interactive and mixing teams for each activity kept everyone on track. The team were really motivated and this will provide a great springboard for the start of term.” (Headteacher, Oaklands Primary)
Creative Approaches to Maths
This popular session gives teachers and maths coordinators an opportunity to explore a range of proven, highly engaging, creative methodologies for teaching and learning maths. All of the activities are absolutely transferable and include; exploring problem solving, thematic and purposeful maths, independent carousels, physical maths games and maths through storytelling. We guarantee by the end of the session you’ll be able to apply them to any area of the maths curriculum! Led by Maths Specialist Jackson Kavanagh – who, in the last two years alone, has delivered creative maths workshops for over 30,000 children and young people from Cumbria to Chelsea!
Duration: Twilight, half or full day.
“Following the as creatives CPD programme, members of the maths department came up with some brilliant ways of linking numeracy to Global Diversity Week!” (Assistant Headteacher, the Oldershaw School)
“The INSET was very informative and made us all realise that problem solving doesn't have to be number based. I think this will inform all of our future planning in some form." (Teacher, Holy Saviour School)
