Maths Sorcerer Workshop (ages 8-9 years)

Thursday 25th October from 12.00pm till 1.00pm

Ticket Price: Free

In partnership with Explore Learning in Ruislip, we are delighted to host our first maths workshop with the theme of "Maths Scorcerer" aimed at children aged 8-9 years.

This is a free, interactive, 1-hour session helping children to understand maths in a fun way, allowing them to unlock their imagination whilst discovering the magic of numbers. Explore Learning are Ofsted registered and support many community projects and schools in Hillingdon.

The workshop is aimed at the education level of  8-9 years, though this is a guideline as we know the needs of our young people vary.  We trust you to know the capability of your child, though children do need to be able to stay within the workshop independently.
