About this course

Mathematical storytelling is an exciting approach that supports children to both use and understand mathematical language and concepts.

  • Discuss and understand the value of oral rehearsal to internalise patterns & structures.
  • Explore children's innate ability to learn story language and how this can effectively support them to retain key mathematical knowledge and understanding.
  • Discover the power of pictures, books, storytelling and talk-led activities that narrow the gap by supporting vocabulary development and use.
  • Learn how these approaches develop the problem-solving and reasoning skills your young mathematicians need to succeed.
  • You will leave the course having written a mathematical story.

With exclusive games, activities and storytelling approaches that will open up opportunities for meaningful maths talk and further investigation, this is one course that you simply cannot afford to miss.

Audience

  • Maths and Numeracy Leaders
  • Teachers & TAs - EYFS, Key Stage 1 (KS1) & lower Key Stage 2 (KS2)
  • Senior Leadership Team
