We are excited to once again be partnering with Maths Week London, which this year takes place 28th June – 2nd July.
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 to explore different maths concepts in their own time and at their own pace.
Check out the resources below to start exploring. You’ll find:
- Links to all of our creative maths activities which can be downloaded for free to use in the classroom or at home
- A step-by-step guide to creating a piece of Tessellation artwork
- Information on how to submit your Tessellation artwork to our virtual gallery
- 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 London – and beyond!
