This is a practical one day course designed to improve the teaching of Mathematics at KS2. The course focuses on practical, step by step ways of moving learners from concrete methods to abstract methods; removing their dependence on facts and procedures alone. The course supports the development of mastery.
The course is designed to build the confidence of the teacher as a mathematics expert in the classroom through a more in depth understanding of the processes involved. The course will look at the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division at KS2 in line with the national curriculum expectations, and Ofsted’s expectations of Mastery in the Maths classroom.
The course looks at planning, problem solving, intervention strategies, misconceptions and assessment of impact in line with the new national curriculum, inspection expectations and guidance on best practice.
The course is a mix of direct tuition and skill based learning involving group tasks. The practical activities are mainly completed in groups of two or three participants so that thoughts and evaluations can be shared and compared. Groups will be asked to feedback their findings on most tasks. Each day has five hours of tuition, divided into four blocks of 1 x 1 hour, 1 x 1hr05 and 2 x 1.5 hours.
The tutor is an experienced, energetic, successful trainer, Maths adviser, teacher and manager at department level. His degree is in mathematics and education and as a keen maths teacher he is always looking for ways to develop his own knowledge and practice. He is a National Centre for the Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics Accredited Professional Development Lead Practitioner.
