Outdoor Maths in Primary Schools
This is a practical course aimed to support primary teachers at KS1 and KS2 to embed outdoor approaches into their ongoing maths work.
This course aims to:
- Explore the school grounds and local area as a rich context for developing maths skills, knowledge and understanding, regardless of whether you have a concrete jungle or natural oasis
- Integrate the use of the outdoors into your approach to maths, be this maths mastery, a specific scheme or system you have developed within your own school
- Consider the practical aspects of teaching maths outside including:
- How to easily plan outdoor elements of your maths provision
- The use of low cost or free materials
- How to support children who have a broad range of needs and abilities
