Stay-in Sessions

We really miss our monthly drop-in library events so we thought – why not bring them to you at home with ‘stay-in’ sessions.

Next Stay-in Session: Number Character Storytelling on Saturday 30th January 2021

 What is a Stay-in Session?
It’s a creative maths activity, designed to be explored at home as a family, accompanied by an online make-a-long video session, led by Maths on Toast staff.

When are you running Stay-in Sessions?
Every month
 we will release a fun, hands-on, creative maths activity for you to follow as a family. 

Where can I find the sessions?
You can find links to upcoming sessions at the top of this page. Scroll down to see past months’ sessions. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to a live session – How-To videos will be uploaded and made available for you to view at any time, along with accompanying activity sheets.

Will I be able to ask you questions?
If you watch it live, Susan and Niki – our Community and Schools Outreach Co-ordinators – will be able to answer any questions while you are watching. 

What materials do I need?
Don’t forget to download any accompanying resources in advance so you are ready to go. A link to these will be on the Event page, along with a list of any other materials we think you will need for that month’s activity.
