Leading Number Games in the Primary Classroom led by Vivien Townsend
DATE: Wednesday 3rd April 2019
Maths games can be challenging both mathematically and socially for pupils. They can also be great fun! On this course, we will consider the benefits of playing number games for children’s learning in mathematics and also in supporting their acquisition of social skills such as turn-taking. This will be a practical session in which we experience a range of number games suitable for children across the primary phase and share ideas for managing games with small groups. The ways in which we adapt popular number games in the workshop will be transferable to others that you are familiar with.
Attendees will be provided with an overview of each game and the resources to play some of them in school the next day. Please come along ready to have a go!
