We have now completed four Creative Maths sessions. The sessions are focused around the King and Queen of number who rule the land of number. All our workshop exercises are framed within the story, raising the stakes and making the situations real for the children involved. We have had lots of adventures so far including throwing a massive party with number games for all the townspeople, tidying up all the muddled numbers that have been knocked down from the festivities the night before and something very interesting with a snail (but more about that in a later blog!).
It never ceases to amaze me that by playing and enjoying numbers, you remove the fear factor or getting it wrong or right!
