Course Tutor

Janet is a freelance
education consultant
who has worked with
children and adults
throughout the foundation and primary
stages. She has been a teacher and
headteacher of both mainstream and
special schools. She holds very strong
beliefs about how young children
learn, and this is reflected not only
through her work but also through her
numerous publications.
Children (and adults!) learn best when
they are actively involved in their own
learning. Many children are asked to
record their mathematics before they
have developed a real understanding of
the concepts involved. Her work allows
children to develop understanding
as well as the thinking involved in
decision making.
