Event description

Description

A lot of children struggle with recalling their times tables facts (so do adults) and when they are regularly being tested at school, it can start to feel demoralising if you aren't keeping up with your peers. Times tables are also greatly beneficial in all other aspects of maths as they make calculating groups of numbers far easier and quicker.


On the 25th April we are holding a times table workshop. During the workshop we will create a pack of games like that which I use for supporting times tables in our lessons. There will be pairs games, fishing games, bingo, snakes and ladders to name but a few.


Some parents will believe that their child is too old for games. 20 years of working in education has taught me that if we are enjoying ourselves we are in a better state of mind to learn. If we repeat something more than once we remember it better. But more importantly, we need to create a range of memories so that our brain has a range of places it can go to in order to find the information it needs.

Let me explain that better. If we do a worksheet we create a memory. If we do a second worksheet we make that memory stronger but our brain still only has one place to go to in order to find that information.

However, if we play pairs, snakes and ladders, times tables noughts and crosses (tick tack toe) we are creating a range of different memories and a variety of places that our brain can go to when it needs that information.

Let me know in advance which times table your child needs to focus on ( any number from 2 to 15, or mixed easy or hard of preferred) and to ensure the pack you make on the day is relevant.


Any questions, please do ask.

I look forward to meeting you there
