Maths Week England

As a Maths Week England charity partner, we’re looking forward to this year’s fun-packed week, which takes place 14th-18th November 2022.

Creating positive memories of doing maths is an important step in building a confident, can-do attitude.

Our hands-on creative approach draws on art, craft, construction, science and nature. The result is an array of crafty, playful, open-ended maths activities designed to inspire curiosity and encourage children and families to explore different maths concepts at their own pace.

Get involved!

Scroll down to check out the free resources and start exploring. You’ll find:

  • Links to all of our creative maths activities which can be downloaded to use in the classroom, at home or in a community/family learning setting
  • Our autumn/winter Join-In Project and Gallery: Snowflakes – schools, families, libraries, community groups – Join-In projects are for everyone!
  • How to sign up to our live online Schools Stay-In Session (Wednesday 16th November at 9:30am)
  • Advice and tips on building maths confidence and supporting maths learning

*Schools why not print out our activity sheets and send them home for families to do together during Maths Week England – and beyond!

In addition, our Festival of Triangles kit for schools – a week of in-school activities culminating in a family maths celebration event – is available to buy.

Don’t forget to show us what you did!

Share your creations with us and send photos and/or feedback of any activities you do by tagging us on social media @mathsontoast or email them to info@mathsontoast.org.uk

Schools please encourage families to share their photos with us too!
