NW Maths Hub 3 is offering the following Primary Maths CPD opportunities in spring/summer 2017:
Mathematics Subject Leaders Day 2- Friday 10th March 2017 Focus on the Assessment of Mastery; moderation and standardisation. There will also be an opportunity for quality assurance of Maths practice via NW Maths Hub 3 as they share their experiences from current national practice and policy.
Mathematics Moderation and Standardisation sessions EYFS to Y6: starting March 2017
These sessions will explore what a learner looks like in a year groups. Establish what the key areas of maths are and what this looks like with a depth of understanding. The session will provide an opportunity to build the mathematical toolkit further with new ideas! Teachers will have the opportunity to look at a range of children’s learning in the specific year groups. It will also support teachers to make a summative judgement and then help them plan and adjust teaching for the third term. Sessions are led by experienced moderators and quality assured by NW Maths Hub 3.
There will be a pre-course task and teachers are asked to bring a small selection of children’s books.
PVI/Nursery Practitioners (including schools with Nursery settings) starting March 2017
Maths Everywhere! Practitioners will explore ways of ensuring Maths is everywhere, including ideas for enhanced and continuous provision, adult and child led activities focusing on number, counting and place value.
We will explore: What does intelligent practice look like and how can we ensure depth of learning is happening in a creative setting.
For practitioners: an opportunity to develop subject knowledge, an improved progressional understanding and to explore why language, a ‘can do’ attitude and raised expectations are essential.
Effective Transition from EYFS to Year 1- June 2017
EYFS teachers will work with Year 1 teachers to establish where children are on their mathematical pathway and how we can build on this learning into Year 1. There will be a range of practical ideas to support both year groups.
