Playful Maths: physically active learning

Being active in maths lessons increases children’s engagement. Learning maths through playing games is fun.

‘A study by Leeds Beckett University into physically active learning found that pupils who took part in active lessons gained 7% more marks in maths than pupils in sitting down lessons’.

During the day, we will explore:

  • games and activities, indoor and out, that will engage and enthuse your learners
  • which of the statutory requirements from the national curriculum (primary mathematics) they cover
  • how to use games and physical activity to promote the acquisition of mathematical vocabulary and technical language as well as reasoning and problem solving behaviours

This course will be particularly useful for NQTS and RQTs but will also benefit any teacher or manager of mathematics.

The course is hosted by Eldwick Primary School and led by Sharon Day/Bryn Llewellyn. 

Course date - full day 18th September 2018.
