Lynwen is an independent primary numeracy consultant working across the UK. An experienced practitioner, she has taught throughout the primary school, been a deputy head teacher and, most recently, a mathematics adviser where she gained extensive experience of providing training and support for teachers in mathematics and numeracy. She was part of the advisory group that originally developed the Literacy and Numeracy Framework. Lynwen is also a consultant and trainer for Numicon and Inspire Maths.
Lynwen firmly believes that effective teaching places the learner at the centre of the process and that in order to learn effectively children need to be engaged, active and talking about their learning and thinking. Digit Dog is one of the strategies Lynwen has developed to enthuse and engage young learners in mathematical thinking, reasoning and problem solving.
