Biography

MATHEMATICS and NUMERACY – Lynwen currently works as an independent numeracy consultant. An experienced practitioner she has taught across all primary age groups. She has been a deputy head and, most recently, a mathematics adviser where she gained extensive experience of providing training and support for teachers in mathematics and numeracy. She was part of the advisory group that originally developed the Literacy and Numeracy Framework. Lynwen is a consultant and trainer for Numicon and Inspire Maths and has many years experience delivering training in CAME and Let’s Think.

Lynwen firmly believes that effective teaching places the learner at the centre and that in order to learn effectively children need to be active and to talk about their learning and thinking. She has developed approaches in mathematics that promote conceptual understanding and learner independence rather than an over-emphasis on the learning of procedures and techniques. In numeracy she has developed meaningful ways for learners to use their skills across the curriculum.
