Join House Of Maths and Charlie the Maths Cat for a laughter-packed hands-on session with shapes, numbers and fun. Warning: sometimes the numbers misbehave – please shout out if you spot any mistakes!


This session is designed for children aged 4-5. As places for this session are limited, we ask that only one adult attends with their children.


Barney Maunder-Taylor is unique amongst Maths Workshops presenters: he has a double first in maths from Oxford University, is a former Champion of Countdown (series 62), is a previous winner of Bournemouth & Poole Children’s Entertainer Of The Year (Dorset), and still holds the title of Jester of Bournemouth. A former cabaret juggler, Barney now divides his time equally between tutoring maths to University level in Dorset, and presenting maths shows & assemblies and maths workshops in Primary and Lower Secondary schools throughout Dorset, Hampshire and the South. As a teacher of maths Barney is clear, dynamic, innovative and entertaining; as a maths demonstrator and schools visitor Barney delights in sharing his passion, tricks and insights into the hidden maths of our everyday lives.
