Description

While it is never a pleasant thought coming back from holidays we know most dedicated teachers spend time at school the week before the students come back… so… we thought we might provide a gentle start to your year.

These sessions will be run by Dr Paul Swan and the AISWA team of maths consultants. These two sessions will be both practical and entertaining.


Each of these sessions will include:

  • Lesson starters – ideas to get your maths lesson off to a flying start
  • A range of simple, yet effective games to add to your repertoire
  • Making the most of materials, such as dice
  • Some planning and assessment ideas
  • A showbag of goodies and freebies
Please note: you are welcome to register for both sessions, however due to the expected demand, a place in both sessions cannot be guaranteed.
