Are you looking for great new ideas and ways of using simple, affordable resources that make maths accessible to ALL children? Half-day training suitable for anyone supporting learning in the Early Years: teachers, childminders, pre-school staff and parents. Get in touch!
Cuisenaire rods can be seen as the ‘concrete’ stage in ‘bar modelling’ and, when combined effectively, are the key to building true fluency in problem solving and calculation.
This training will show you the power of connecting real-life problem solving with the ‘Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract’ approach enabling ALL children to understand the underlying mathematical concepts and structures involved.
Fractions remains one of the most challenging areas to teach well. This course will make sure teacher subject knowledge comes first coupled with meaningful ways to develop deep conceptual understanding using the highly effective ‘Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract’ approach to learning.
Mindset in maths matters most. If you believe you’re not a ‘maths person’ you won’t learn. If the person teaching you believes you can’t learn, you won’t learn. If you don’t expect learning to be tough and full of set backs and practise, you won’t learn.

‘One of our EYFS Teachers has just attended this training and came back totally inspired and singing your praises. She said that she learnt more on this course than any course she has ever attended!’

Thank you for showing us HOW to change. So many courses just tell us what isn't working but not how to go about addressing this. Your approaches make so much sense!
Just to say thank you again for 3 really brilliant talks at SGIS. We're a small school near Basel and we’d be interested in anything you’re doing nearby (Zurich way) so please let us know!
