Summer Courses starting in July

Mathematical Art Camp (Age 6-10)

Course Details

Led by Sophie Denton, Russell Group Education, fully qualified teacher and passionate educator, this course will open your eyes to the artsy side of Maths!

Do you love art? Do you love Mathematics? Do you want to become the next Leonardo da Vinci (and I don’t mean the Ninja turtle)? Have you ever wondered how you can use your maths skills to make art? Well this is the course for you.

In this mathematical art course, we will make patchwork paper patterns, curved shapes that look cool (but are really easy to draw), mazes, and impossible looking triangles. No deep knowledge of maths is necessary, just some paper, a pencil, a ruler, and some colouring pencils if you have them.

Join the course, we will have great fun!

Our Mathematical Art Course will take place daily at the following schedule:

Monday 3rd August to Friday 7th August 2020

10:00-11:00pm (6-10 year olds)

No Registration Fee

Get to know your tutor
Meet Sophie!

I am a fully qualified primary teacher. I undertook my PGCE with Teach First back in 2015. Since then, alongside my teaching, I have tutored children both in and out of school for a range of purposes - such as SATS, 11+ and independent schools entrance examinations. I have taught the full breadth of years from Yr1 through to Yr6, but the majority of my experience has been in KS2. Before teaching, I was awarded a BA (hons) classical civilisation degree from the University of Warwick. I am currently a curriculum leader at my school, and am also currently the art and music curriculum leader – I have always had a love of the arts. Previously I was also the history, geography and RE curriculum leader.

My classes have always included a high percentage of children with additional needs; I pride myself in always taking the time and effort, whether for my school class or my tutees, to make my lessons meet the needs of each individual child. I have very high expectations for my students, but I also firmly believe that learning should be fun!

In my spare time I love to be active; you’ll find me out running, at a yoga class or up a climbing wall. I am also very creative and love brushing up on my art skills at home, before sharing them in the classroom. I am also passionate about languages, and am currently learning Spanish.
