Outdoor Maths Mastery Visits & CPD Training

Most schools have exciting visits linked to authors, science, history… but when did you have your last amazing Maths enrichment day? When I began to offer outdoor maths CPD provision to schools, I realised that the key to empowering teachers was for them to witness their children learning Maths outdoors… and LOVING it!

I offer Outdoor Maths Mastery visits for an individual class to the whole school, giving the children an enriching, exciting Maths experience and nature connection, with all of the associated mental and emotional health benefits. These visits can be themed around a particular area of Maths, such as fractions, showing how outdoor learning can raise motivation and develop conceptual understanding outside the traditional classroom environment. By taking part alongside their pupils, teachers gain first hand experience of an outdoor maths mastery approach.

Additional follow up twilight CPD sessions can be organised via Zoom or in person to give further support with planning, behaviour, trouble-shooting, assessment and any other questions arising from the visit.

With over twenty years experience in formal, informal and charity sector education, I am able to support schools to implement outdoor learning, regardless of the school location and outdoor space available.

When I learn outside, I feel braver.
