FEBRUARY HALF TERM WORKSHOPS

 

  •  IMAGINATION WORKSHOP

This workshop is designed to help children who find it difficult to come up with initial ideas for creative writing and for those who struggle to plan a relevant plot line. Using different techniques involving discussion, the use of props, group storytelling and other exciting ways to conjure ideas and the imagination, children will develop a deeper understanding for the importance of relevant and exciting plot.

Next dates: Monday 18th February

  • PROBLEM SOLVING WORKSHOP

In this workshop, we aim to give children some practical advice on how to tackle a variety of maths problems. They will be guided through examples which show them how different tactics can help decipher different problems. They will learn the importance of notation during the interpretation of a question, as well as the importance of checking each answer. The second part of the workshop allows children to attempt questions on their own. The overall aim of this workshop is to try to dispel any fears children may have about problem solving. They will learn that when armed with the correct tools, any problem can be dismantled and solved easily.
