Understanding place value allows children to unlock large and small numbers, as well as calculating. So, ensuring that children are secure with place value is paramount to building a firm foundation on which to link other areas of mathematics.
This training would be suitable for teachers and TAs in Years 1-4 as well as subject leaders of mathematics.
From times tables to formal written methods, the training will explore the key ideas behind multiplication; delving into concrete, pictorial and abstract representations, as well as the key laws of mathematics- what are they and why are they important?
This 70 minute training will explore key mathematics and pedagogical ideas for years 3 and 4, underpinned by the aims of the national curriculum and the five big ideas of teaching for mastery.
In particular, the training will focus on considering the big idea of equivalence and how representations that look different can all be linked to the same underlying mathematical idea to support mental calculation.
This CPD opportunity would be suitable for new and experienced teachers and TAs in years 3 and 4 as well as subject leaders of mathematics.
If children can readily recall number bonds within 20, then the move to formal written calculation reduces the cognitive load. These bonds form the basis of calculation and in this 70 minute training, we will consider strategies and key structures to support this development.
This course is suitable for KS1 teachers, teaching assistants, new to year group and NQT’s as well as subject leaders looking for an overview of KS1 calculation.
This training will explore key mathematics and pedagogical ideas for years 5 and 6, underpinned by the aims of the national curriculum and the five big ideas of teaching for mastery.
In particular, the training will focus on supporting children to develop a conceptual understanding of fractions and decimals and consider manipulatives that can be used to further strengthen understanding. This is an important topic which connects with children’s understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages and multiplicative thinking.
This CPD opportunity would be suitable for new and experienced teachers and TAs in years 5 and 6 as well as subject leaders of mathematics.
A course for teachers and TA's in Years 1-6 as well as subject leaders looking to develop a whole school approach. This is an introduction to the use of bar modelling as a method of supporting children in moving from a concrete to an abstract approach.
Data for KS2 SATs identifies fractions as an area that children find difficult to secure each year. How can we build a secure progression that really supports children to make better connections between fractions and the rest of the number system?
This prerecorded course provides an overview of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) as an introduction or refresher. It will explore the statutory framework for meeting the needs of pupils with SEND through a step-by-step approach.
Participants will gain an understanding of the types of SEND, the whole school approach to improving outcomes through SEN support, ‘Top Tips’ for setting up an inclusive classroom, and working with parents and specialists.
