Did you know that we run online workshops for FREE on our Instagram and Facebook pages from time to time?



They range from helpful workshops to support new teachers, to providing ideas for reading groups, to offering tips and tricks to save teachers precious time in their week.

We are huge advocates for hands-on maths lessons that are fun and engaging for students.


Not only do we want kids to learn but it is important to us that they enjoy the process at the same time. With this in mind, we put together our DITCH THE WORKSHEETS workshop series.


This workshop series has 5 lessons. We have embedded all the videos below, so all you need to do is click and watch! We hope you find them super helpful.



Teacher Tip 1: We are sure you don't have time to sit and binge on all 5 videos now. Make sure you bookmark this page so it is easy to come back to (feel free to share with a friend too so they can get the benefit of this free workshop).


Teacher Tip 2: If you are short on time, you can speed up the videos by clicking the three dots in the bottom right corner of the video, selecting 'playback speed' and then choosing 1.25 (recommended) or 1.5.
