    ‘Primary Maths - How to make it SHINE’ - Nick Tiley-Nunn, Teacher and Author

    Thursday 25 October 2018

    8am for an 8:30am start - 11:45am at Breadsall Priory, Moor Road, Morley, DE7 6DL

    Nick is a phenomenal primary maths teacher combining high expectations with creativity and a sense of fun. So it comes as all the more of a surprise when he reveals how he was dreading teaching maths when he first started, something not exactly uncommon. For Nick, it was this dread that made him all the more determined not just to make sure he didn’t transmit this fear to children, but to do his best to ensure they walked away from his lesson loving maths. In his own words, ‘The thing that I do that is special is ensure that no child leaves my classroom with anything less than a love for primary mathematics, regardless of their ability’.
      “A marvellous blend of inspiration and humour which was just what was needed and left everyone buzzing with enthusiasm”. “A wealth of creative and practical ideas.” “Great ideas, engaging, enjoyable and useful, relevant to everyone - a rainbow of mathematics brilliance.”
