Since school closures began earlier this year due to COVID19, parents have found themselves having to support their child's homeschooling. To that end, we are very pleased that many schools across the UK have recommended various free on-line resources on our MathsThroughStories.org website to parents. Some of these examples are included below. (More examples can be found in the bottom section of our Research Impact webpage.)
We are also very pleased that our website is also recommended in a recent blog post by the UK's Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), an independent charity sets out to improve the educational attainment of the poorest pupils in English schools. The blog post includes advice to support parents in their homeschooling effort. It is worth noting that our website is also highlighted as a go-to resource for teachers looking for ideas on how to enhance their mathematics teaching through storytelling in their guidance report at the beginning of this year.
We are very proud of our work in that it has continued to serve as a trusted source of support for schools and parents, particularly during this challenging time.
