Stay-in Sessions

Stay-in Sessions

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

When are you running Stay-in Sessions?
Every month
between September and December we will release an online make-a-long video session with fun, hands-on, creative maths activities for you to follow as a family. 

Where can I find the sessions?
The video sessions will be uploaded here on our website. You can find links to upcoming and past sessions at the bottom of this page. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to a live session – the videos will be 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 via Facebook or email 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.
