Maths (Primary) Workshop

Maths workshop for primary schools (KS1 and KS2)

This workshop was developed by an Aerospace Engineer to make maths fun and engaging for children. We have three different versions of this workshop to offer schools that will cover KS1, lower KS2, and higher KS2. It is ideal for a primary school maths day. Check our secondary school workshop here (if you need something more advanced).

We have based our primary school maths workshops around the national curriculum. It will also give children an insight into how maths is applied in everyday life.


We can deliver sessions in parallel.
1 instructor can deliver the following in a full day:
Primary: 3 sessions x 1 hr 30 mins or
2 sessions x 2 hrs 30 mins
(30 students per session)

Maths in a Box

Our workshop will help students apply those foundation maths skills at an early stage in their learning while boosting their attainment in maths. We have spent a considerable effort developing practical activities related to the topics covered in this workshop. Our worksheets are unique, and combined with fun games, will keep children occupied throughout the day.
