Simple and easy to read, it is full of ideas about engaging children in play, so that teaching (and learning) becomes a process - children learn by doing, rather than a product - here's a work sheet to complete. This is a book about having FUN, the best resource any teacher can own. -- Peter Imray, Freelance trainer, adviser and writer on Special Educational Needs 101 Inclusive and SEN Maths Activities is a brilliant, easy to use resource for any teacher. The authors clearly have a profound knowledge and expertise about how children are inspired to learn through having fun! The captivating but simple activities provide the breadth of learning opportunities every child needs. -- Sue Beaman MBE (for services to special education), retired head teacher at a special school As Headteacher of the school Kate and Claire worked at whilst writing this book, I can fully endorse all of the activities they suggest, as I have seen them working in practice. The pupils in their classes developed their understanding of maths through this wide array of fun learning activities. I encourage teachers of pupils with special educational needs in both special schools and mainstream schools to use these activities to promote maths learning in a way that truly engages pupils. -- Dr Penny Barratt, Executive Headteacher of The Bridge School in London and The Bridge Integrated Learning Space This book is full of really useful tried and tested ideas for gaining and sustaining the attention of learners with SEN in numeracy lessons. It will be particularly useful to teachers with developing knowledge of SEN, who are wishing to make their lessons more inclusive. '101 Inclusive and SEN maths activities' also offers a wealth of ideas, which can be used in home education. -- Adele Devine, special needs teacher at Portesbery School and JKP author
