ARE YOU TEACHING IN A YEAR 4 CLASS IN LONDON OR BERKSHIRE, UK?

We are about to start a University of Reading-funded research project exploring the effectiveness of children creating mathematical story picture books on their mathematics learning. 

If you are teaching a Year 4 class in London or Berkshire (UK) and would be happy for us to come and work with children in your class for 1-2 weeks, could you let us know, please?


 

ARE YOU A PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER IN AUSTRALIA? 

In collaboration with academics at Monash University, the University of Tasmania and Griffith University, we are currently conducting a survey study exploring Australian teachers' beliefs concerning the integration of children's literature / story picture books in mathematics teaching and learning. If you are teaching at a primary school in Australia, could you spare us a few minutes to complete the survey here, please?
