Course Description

First4Maths are delighted to be able to welcome Professor Mike Askew to deliver the keynote speech at their third annual mathematics conference. Mike is an internationally regarded expert in the field of mathematics education, particularly in the primary phase. Mike will look at how to develop enjoyment and wonder in the teaching and learning of mathematics while ensuring that children gain a clear understanding and love of mathematics.

We are privileged to be able to welcome Liz Woodham, Primary Coordinator at NRICH, to our conference. Liz will be delivering ‘Problem Solving Unpacked’ worshops for EYFS/KS1 and KS2 teachers.

Jon will be leading workshops at our conference and will share his experiences of how he has used physical activity to engage pupils and raise standards.

First4Maths consultants will deliver workshops alongside Mike, Liz and Jon to ensure there are a range of workshops to access across the primary phase.
