A good Maths Club gives pupils the opportunity to experience maths outside the normal classroom environment, and should make maths engaging and enjoyable. The club should raise the profile of maths in school and support your pupils to:
- Improve their subject knowledge
- Improve their attitudes to maths
- Increase self-confidence.
Following a three year project involving 26 primary schools across London looking into best practice, we have created this practical Toolkit to help you and your pupils get the most out of your Maths Club. It contains all the information and resources you need to start your own Maths Club in your primary school, including downloadable activity guides, worksheets, videos and case studies.
