Get real, get messy, get maths, get outside. Come and spend a wonderful day in the woods, with Juliet Robertson, the author of the multi-award winning book, Messy Maths. Together you will explore the five “R’s” of Messy Maths:
Rights – every child is mathematical and has the right to have learn about and explore maths.
Routines – embedding key maths concepts into your daily routines.
Resources – open-ended, low cost materials which can be used in lots of different ways with different ages and abilities of children.
Responsibilities of the adults – how to follow children’s lead and articulate the learning which happens through a play-based approach. It also includes ways of involving families in developing a child’s love of maths.
Re-imagining your outdoor space – developing maths-rich provision in any outdoor space be this a concrete jungle, woodland paradise or something else.

With increased interest in the use of outdoor spaces for teaching and learning, maths is a great focus to develop your confidence at teaching outside. In this webinar, Juliet provides lots of practical advice, how to plan, issues to consider and ways to integrate the use of the outdoors into your ongoing maths programme, especially those that have adopted a mastery approach that values conceptual understanding.
It is particularly suitable for those who work in school grounds and but also relevant to those who use local woodlands and other greenspace. Participants will get access to a password protected blog post with lots of handouts developed from Juliet’s own work teaching outside. It is suitable for those who work with children in Y1 to Y6.
