Closing the mathematical gap- KS1 and 2 sessions
These sessions will look at how to support children who would benefit from additional support with mathematics. We will consider how formative assessment leads to effective support for children as well as looking at mathematics models and variation so children are supported to see the same concepts in different ways- Starting in November 2016.
Teacher Assistant maths training- These courses will run over two days
We will explore the most significant mathematics concepts and look at how modelling, questioning, use of language and assessment will support the learners. Exploring how to support children with increased expectations and improving subject knowledge- Starting in November 2016.
NEW for Spring 2017
From ‘Modelling to Mastery’- Year group based sessions
Teachers will explore how to start from a model moving to depth of learning to achieve Mastery. They will extend the mathematics tool kit as well as looking at how we can teach the skills of reasoning and solving problems to ensure teachers are meeting the 3 aims of the National Curriculum.
Success@Arithmetic- 3 sessions
Success@Arithmetic is an innovative, highly effective intervention for pupils in Key Stages 2 and 3 who need support to become fluent at arithmetic.
Expert training enables a teacher to plan a programme and a teaching assistant to deliver it to a small group of pupils. The training also strengthens their teaching and support of mathematics across the school- Starting January 2017
