Stay-in Sessions

We have really been missing our monthly drop-in library events so we thought – why not bring them to you at home this autumn 2020 with ‘stay-in’ sessions.

Next Stay-in Session: Saturday 12th December – Save the Snowman! 

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
between September and December we will release a fun, hands-on, creative maths activities 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 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. 

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 on hand to answer any questions while you are watching. 

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

Missed any of our earlier Stay-in sessions? No problem!
