Making the learning and teaching of maths meaningful, relevant and enjoyable!
Mathematics is central to our lives. It is important for pupils to see that the application of mathematics is in all walks of life, across all disciplines from finance, design, engineering, manufacture, computing, science, art and more.
The Maths Matter workshops are designed so participants can experience and explore ideas to:
- build a firm foundation in maths
- develop fluency in numeracy
- develop their problem solving skills
Maths Matter Workshops held at Dewsbury Library for:
Key Stage 1 on Tuesday 29 May 2018
Key Stage 2 on Thursday 31 May 2018
My reflections of the maths workshops:
Parents felt empowered to support their child at home with developing and strengthening their numeracy skills required in primary school.
The parents who attended the maths workshops have seen how easy it is to incorporate mathematical calculations within their routine activities.
Feedback from the parents and children who attended the maths-matter workshop at Dewsbury Library.
Great Ideas for bringing maths into everyday language and experiences.
Reminder to use maths phrases in everyday situations.
Thank you for the workshop!
Very informative. Thank you.
Thank you. This has helped!
The workshop has given me information on how to support my children with maths in Key Stage 2 in everyday life and not just by using worksheet. Fantastic!
Excellent Workshop. When you are talking about your workbooks hand them out so parents can look through it whilst/before you talk about them. Lovely bookmaks!

Reviews from parents who attended the maths matter workshops:
I loved this workshop, such lovely ideas on how to make maths tangible for our children and just how easy it is by using the world around us – trees cars on the street etc.
Please call for any other courses.
Great ideas given to support homework and different strategies given to help different learners. Great workshop we need more!
I have learnt new methods of teaching maths to the children, Which I have never thought of before this workshop.
Thank you very much!
