Previous participants' feedback
''The greater depth maths training delivered by Helen Davids was interactive, interesting and insightful. Lots of good practise was shared and I am excited to explore many of these concepts with my children in the classroom.''
''Helen was very informative. Shared some outstanding practice and definitely made me leave thinking about how to improve my classroom practice and implement some new strategies for teaching reasoning.''
''The course was very thorough and gave lots of opportunities to discuss ideas and try out the strategies introduced. I can really see how these structures will help the children in my class learn and help me teach. It put some of the more complex changes to the new curriculum into context which was also useful.''
