VISIT FROM WITS
Highlight of May was academics Hamsa Venkat and Prof Mike Askew from WITS University in Johannesburg, facilitating a workshop on early Maths Development for all the ECD Practitioners in the Ufafa Valley. Hamsa and Mike run a research and development project on primary maths in Gauteng, focussing on materials and teacher development. Descriptions of the work and freely downloadable materials are available on their website: http://www.wits.ac.za/wits-maths-connect/wits-maths-connect-primary/ Hamsa and Mike were the most awesome team to watch in action! Taking all day just to teach/learn the numbers 1-5 had participants riveted! Their innovative, fun methods and exciting activities made everyone love this workshop. Woza Moya friend and volunteer Janet Lazarus, who supports Maths teachers in Inanda, Durban, also attended this workshop, offering to do the vital follow up support and training for all 9 crèches attending this training. We look forward to seeing some great Mathematicians coming out of the Ufafa Valley!
