Neurodiverse small group Maths enrichment Lessons
We will be running weekly KS2/KS3 online Maths enrichment lessons especially for Neurodiverse children who find Maths really tough going and probably have Maths Anxiety. They may already have a diagnosis of Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, Dyspraxia or ASD. Or you may believe that they show many of the traits of these learning differences. If so, they will need to be taught in a different, much more visual, and practical way.
Neurodiversity is a different brain organisation that needs different teaching methods. Teaching in a visual and hands-on way can enable children to succeed and unlock their potential. That’s what we do. Support children with a different teaching and learning style that helps them feel better about Maths and living in a World surrounded by numbers.
Our sessions won’t have any worksheets #worksheetfreezone and won’t be about rote learning or learning number facts. So much of Primary Maths is about memory and fact learning, and they are rewarded for doing Maths fast. At JMB Educational Services, we follow the latest Dyscalculia research. We know that this testing based teaching doesn’t suit Neurodiverse children.
Learning in practical, visual, and relevant ways and not just in an abstract way helps tap into the potential Neurodiverse children have, and unlock their ability and self-belief.
Our group sessions will not be year-group based or curriculum led. Our sessions will be topic and theme based. Each session will focus on practical enrichment activities that inspire and encourage children to think, problem-solve and above all, understand the ‘hows? and whys?’
We know that our students often love and excel in art, creativity, and science. Because of this, our group sessions will have these practical STEAM skills at their centre.
Patterns in nature, creating geometric patterns & symmetry, maps & directions, telling the time, using money, weighing & measuring, recipes, bus timetables, and time zones around the World are just a few of the real-life topics we will be covering.
The first cohorts of group lessons will be taught by me (Judy Brice) and will be fun maths lessons in a small group of 6 children who are in KS2 or KS3. Patterns in nature, creating geometric patterns & symmetry, maps & directions, telling the time, using money, weighing & measuring, recipes, bus timetables, and time zones around the World are just a few of the real-life topics we will be covering. In the future we hope to offer similar group classes for creative writing, science and art.
