Teachers, assistants and learning support staff will be shown a variety of materials that MathsBuddy uses to help give children a better understanding of each mathematical area.
The teachers, assistants and learning support staff have the opportunity to assess the methods and materials that make such a positive difference to learners.
The emphasis will be on practical work and children becoming comfortable with using mathematical language.
Once the MathsBuddy principles are used within the classroom, teachers and learning support staff will be in a better position to assess children and see what the next step in teaching should be rather than being led by the published scheme.
The staff will notice that the children are much more interested in learning as maths teaching is more interactive and meaningful.
Children have greatly increased self-esteem when they realise that they can learn and do maths.
Children perform much better in tests.
Children actually begin to see maths as an enjoyable subject that they want to work at.
The MathsBuddy methods cater for the different learning styles rather than just auditory learners.
