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.
