Welcome to my Magic for Schools Pages
Eleven years have elapsed since I first started presenting my maths or science shows and workshops to schools, Working closely with schools and teachers, my aim has always been to develop shows and workshops where the focus is on keeping them both educational and fun.
“The children and staff absolutely loved it! They got a lot out of it and it certainly improved their enjoyment of maths, which was my aim for the week.” Wendy Burnett, Wootton Lower School Bedfordshire June 2010
A child was heard to say–“That man was the best fun we’ve ever had with Maths!” Sarah Hobhouse, Coombe Infant School, Kingston-upon-Thames February 2007
In these pages are details of my…
Focusing on numeracy skills and strategies for mental arithmetic I have a range of shows to suit each year group from Early Years to KS2.
“I’ve heard nothing but praise from Nursery up to Y6 from both pupils and staff.” Rob Fellows, Brookfield Primary School Camden May 2010
The workshops are an opportunity for KS2 children to learn some of these magical tricks whilst reinforcing their maths learning and using their maths skills. A way of gaining confidence with mental arithmetic whilst learning new skills they can take away and impress their parents and friends with.
“The year 6 children demonstrated and taught 3 of your tricks to the parents in our schools maths workshop and it went down a treat.” Nicola Jackson, Erdington Hall Primary School, Birmingham Nov 2007
With the focus on learning and fun, these shows for Foundation, KS1 and KS2 contain experiments that appear magical until the science is explored, and tricks where science is relied upon to make the illusion.
“Ihave never seen our children so captivated by a show – It was fantastic, well presented, inspiring and FUN!”
Lisa Murphy, (Science co-ordinator) Heene First School, Worthing June 2008
The class size workshops, with a focus on scientific disciplines such as fair tests, are an opportunity for the children to repeat some of the investigations presented in the show.
“Just wanted to say thank you for helping our Investigation Week get off to such a great start. The children loved the week and your magic was a real highlight.” Glyn Roberts, Bickley Primary School, Bromley March 2008
