Workshop Description

From supporting environmental awareness to promoting resilience and adaptability to improving mental well-being, there are a whole host of benefits to Outdoor Learning.

Outdoor spaces provide wonderful opportunities to explore how numbers and shapes create both the built and natural worlds. So our engaging (and very active!) outdoor maths workshops, which feature a range of tried and tested al fresco activities, bring home the relevance of numeracy to our everyday lives – and provide lots of scope for problem solving too!

We have developed age-appropriate activities for all year groups from Nursery to Year 6, including our specially designed portable Outdoor Maths Trail - allowing us to offer open air workshops over a whole range of timescales.

Exploring (depending on time, age and group size): maths-in-context, maths language, number investigations, additive and multiplicative reasoning, number sequences and patterns, shape investigations, properties of 2D and 3D shapes, positional language, measurements, data collection, presentation and interpretation.

"All the pupils from Nursery to Year 6 enjoyed exploring how much fun Maths can be outdoors and the after school family outdoor activity was a great way to engage parents and carers. Would definitely book again." Kirkdale St Lawrence C of E Primary School

“Staff thoroughly enjoyed the as creatives Math's Trail INSET; useful, relevant and thoroughly enjoyable." Headteacher, Primary Education Centre, Liverpool
