I have found the entire experience fantastic. I often felt that the long-term plan of mathematics was rather unstructured and it is so great to see how this builds upon their knowledge in each unit. This has been a hugely beneficial experience for both the children and my professional development.
The GLOWMaths Hub is keen for leaders and teachers to have the opportunity to get involved with classroom based research and support innovation. Some research opportunities are linked to national projects and others are local work groups responding to local priorities.
