This course is aimed at practitioners who are new to outdoor play and learning and those wishing to develop their understanding of why and how we can incorporate Maths in the outdoor environment.
Children often learn best outdoors as it suits and supports their learning style and motivation. Their fascinations with sticks, stones and other natural resources are a perfect tool and environment to enable children to express their knowledge, ideas and curiosity with a subject that is often only thought about inside using numbers and pencils.
Come on a journey walk outside to discover how to promote and teach maths outside. We will explore Maths and the concepts that are already all around us, just waiting to be discovered.
We will be outside for the entire session whatever the weather. Waterproofs, stout walking boots/welly boots and warm clothing is advised.
Managers are responsible for the management of individual and team performance. This one day training course will explain the Council's Personal Development and Performance Review process.
