Firstly, all of us at CODE Maths Hub hope that you, your families and school communities are well during these challenging times. As you will be aware that we have suspended all face-to-face contact over this summer term, although we have been able to maintain some support as we become more accomplished with the use of online meetings! This ‘Catch-up’ is a short update to keep you informed of the current work that is happening and also to make you aware of upcoming opportunities.

Lockdown Resources – we have been busy producing resources for Y1 – Y6 to support the development of mathematical thinking and fluency. These are updated each week, are FREE to download and designed to be used to support learning in school and at home. Find them on our website  – http://www.codemathshub.org.uk/lockdown-resources/

Work Groups – a huge thank you to all of our Work Group leads and specialists who have continued to support schools in a variety of different ways. The majority of our projects have now been completed for this term as we recognise that for most there will be a need to focus on your own school communities over the second half of the summer term. Please do remember that as a hub we are still here as a source of help and support when needed.

Primary Embedding – Josh Lury has produced an excellent resource to support the Primary Teaching for Mastery groups. This will be made available on our website and Josh is planning a couple of short sessions to choose from to discuss how best to use these on the 24th or 25th June from 4.00pm to 4.30pm. More details of how to join will be shared soon.

Facebook – If you haven’t yet then please do like and follow our new CODE Maths Hub Facebook page. We will use this as a way of sharing regular updates and ideas. Click the link at the bottom of this email to follow and like us!
