Workshops for teachers

MATHS DANCE inspire me!

Maths Dance_Creative Learning

MATHS DANCE provides high quality and inspirational in school and out of school professional development workshops for teachers and support staff designed to keep their professional practice up-to-date, effective and stimulating. Participants explore mathematical areas and ideas using their moving bodies, are given suggestions for creating their own MATHS DANCE lessons and engage in the creative process of building maths-inspired choreographies. We aim to give teachers who are not dance specialists the confidence to incorporate MATHS DANCE into their teaching.

 

The MATHS DANCE inspire me! workshops:

Teaching Mathematics through Dance (KS1, KS2, KS3 – Ages 5-14)

Teachers will have the opportunity to explore a selection of KS1, KS2 and KS3 maths topics (number, shape and data) through movement.

 

Making cross-curricular links: maths, literature and creative movement

(KS2, KS3 – Ages 7-14)

This is a workshop for teachers working in KS2 & KS3 on using literature to nurture mathematics learning.  Using a story as a starting point, participants will explore creative tasks and will be given ideas and a useful resource pack on devising cross curricular maths lessons with the purpose of getting the children to explore fundamental geometrical ideas and learn about shapes in a full, concrete and holistic manner.

 

The MATHS DANCE inspire me! workshops format:

The workshops for teachers last 2 hours including a 10 minute break. Each workshop involves about 15 teachers. We require access to the space where we will be working for approximately 30 minutes at the beginning and end of the session in order to set up and pack away. The time can be organised how you wish, to suit your timetable.
