Exploring Key Ideas in Mathematics in Years 5 & 6
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.
