Teaching Math in London Schools
Teaching math (or "maths" as they say in the UK) can be quite the challenge for new teachers to London. You will find that most schools in London don't have Math textbooks anymore. So, while I present the above video for humour, it also illustrates how you will actually be teaching math. Perhaps without the costumes though.
I found that the elementary schools all had very good Math resources, with bins of manipulatives and Math corners in pretty much every class. You will have to make your lessons interactive, hands-on and engaging.
You can see the UK curriculum online here to see what I mean.
