Beginning with a purpose written story followed by a question-and-answer session and then an arty maths activity to reinforce learning. This workshop will help children to understand that the number line is infinite and will reinforce their understanding of the decimal system: tens, hundreds, thousands etc.

                    Cuthbert Sees Double Workshop (EYFS & KS1)
                    Focus: doubling. Beginning with a purpose written story followed by a question-and-answer session and then an arty maths activity to reinforce learning. This workshop will help children to see that doubling a number is the same as adding the number to itself.

                    Number Fingerprints (KS1 & KS2)
                    Focus: the product of prime factors. Children will learn that every number can be expressed uniquely as a product of its prime factors. This workshop will help children to factorise numbers, reinforce the definition of prime numbers and engage children in the beauty of mathematics.

                    Big Sums (KS2 & KS3)
                    Focus: how we can sum the first n natural numbers. This workshop will help children spot patterns, think about summing series and generally develop their number confidence. It will also highlight the beauty of mathematics.
