Teaching through the pandemic
Listen to the latest podcast from NCETM and Nikki Bailey, Deputy Headteacher at Oldfield Primary School, to see how Teach Active and Active Learning has been used in maths across Key Stages 1 and 2, and the benefits this has had for children after a long period of home learning. Nikki Bailey is deputy head and Year 1 teacher at a primary school in Chester. She has long been an advocate of teaching maths through physical activity, but has found this particularly beneficial in autumn 2020, with children returning to school unaccustomed to periods of formal, focused concentration. She describes activities and encourages other teachers to have a go.
