Brainwave Education has been offering fun and interactive maths workshops for primary schools since the 2014/15 school year. Over the past 5 years I have refined the workshops and improved the equipment we use to create large 2D and 3D shapes from a basic cube to octahedrons and even an icosahedron (20 sided polyhedron). Using this equipment allows children to visualise and explore maths in a way that is not normally possible. By using shapes, we can explore their properties, area, volume, fractions, measurements (standard and non-standard) and arithmetic.
The aim of the workshops is to engage children in maths in a fun and unique way. A range of problem-solving games are used where wrong answers are required to take the next step to the solution. Knowing that we will need to make mistakes to learn creates a "safe" environment for children to let their imagination take the lead and not be afraid of getting it wrong. Our Ethos is there are no wrong answers, only pathways of learning.
Brainwave Educations mission is to boost the enthusiasm of maths for primary school children in a fun, interactive and creative way at an affordable rate for schools across the UK. I offer a 100% money back guarantee and price match promise to help make these fun workshops available to all.
Each workshop has hands on activities that allow all pupils to be involved and have an input while encouraging teamwork. The nature of the activities allows small and large groups (maximum 90 children per session) to be catered for and can be delivered to EYFS, KS1 and KS2. You can book a maths experience from 1 hour to full days. Details of the activities and an example timetable can be found on the maths workshops page.
"Very engaging, though provoking and interactive. The way the challenges were presented made you WANT to investigate the problem. I liked the involvement of everyone in all the challenges and the physical activates engaged the children."

Thank you so much for last Thursday. It was absolutely brilliant. Every teacher said how much their classes enjoyed the sessions. I would love to invite you back sometime soon. Please know that as far as we are concerned, the whole day was a great success!

We are currently open for business as usual, however precautions are in place which involve all equiment being cleaned and sterilised at the end of a session.
If the government decides to close schools and you have a workshop booked in you will have priority over future dates. Please contact us to discuss the options.
