The Tynings Maths Ranger is called Dave. Dave works for ‘Children’s Playlink’, an outside agency that also runs our ‘Play Rangers’ club. Maths Rangers is run with children in EYFS and Year 1 to promote fun and enjoyment in the outdoor environment. The sessions involve lots of interactive and engaging maths opportunities, playing games and exploring, whilst consolidating the maths learning within the classroom and lessons. The sessions are run on a 12 week basis and run in the mornings from 9:00 until lunchtime. In this time Dave takes out 3 different groups for around 45-60 minutes.
