Why attend?

Fluency, the first aim of the Mathematics Curriculum, can be difficult to achieve without conceptual understanding. This course will provide hands-on opportunities to investigate and evaluate how a variety of structured apparatus can support visualisation which leads to a secure understanding and fluency in a wide range of Mathematics topics.

Outcomes

You will become familiar with a variety of different manipulatives and their benefits for developing fluency throughout the Primary School. You will have increased confidence in using structured apparatus to support children in developing a strong ‘sense of number’ and confidence in manipulating numbers and calculating.

Ideal for: KS1 and KS2 teachers, TAs, SENCos, Maths Subject Leaders
