Museums & Maths Week Scotland: Inspiration for your summer term and beyond

Thursday 29 April 2021
16:30 - 17:45
Online via Zoom

Discover how museums can support your learning and teaching this summer term, and plan ahead for Maths Week Scotland in September. This free event is aimed at Primary teachers based in Scotland, working with the Curriculum for Excellence, who are new to our resources.

Since March 2020, we have adapted our schools resources and sessions to be accessed from anywhere in Scotland. Join us to hear more about how our work can help to enhance your pupils' learning and share ideas with other teachers to get inspiration for your own practice.

The event will cover:

  • Online resources available on our website, spanning topics across the curriculum;
  • Digital Schools Sessions developed in response to the impact of COVID-19 on in-person school visits;
  • Support available and ways to take part in Maths Week Scotland (27 September - 3 October 2021);
  • An update on in-person school visits to our museums;
  • Online resources available from local museums across Scotland.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions on the day or you can submit questions in advance using the Eventbrite form, or by emailing schools@nms.ac.uk.
