Mathematics

This series of courses has been designed to deepen subject knowledge and support those leading Mathematics across the primary school curriculum. All courses include a practical element which can assist participants in developing teaching strategies to implement in school. A variety of teaching methods will be used in order to make mathematics fun for children and teachers. This programme has been developed for primary school staff in EYFS, KS1 and KS2. All courses have been designed to reflect the 2014 National Curriculum.

Mastery in KS1 Mathematics

This course will examine best practice in KS1 mathematics. It will identify the developmental stages that children progress through in order to develop early calculation skills. Through the use of visual models, equipment and images we will explore how children develop a strong and flexible understanding of number, developing early mastery of key maths concepts. A range of practical strategies…

Early Number Sense: Beyond Counting in EYFS and KS1

This course will examine best practice in Early Years and KS1 mathematics. It will identify the developmental stages that children progress through in order to develop early calculation skills and how children learn to calculate using non-counting strategies. Through the use of visual models, equipment and images we will explore how children develop a strong and flexible understanding of number,…

Mastery in KS2 Mathematics

This course will explore how to plan sequences of lessons that build mastery for all children in KS2 mathematics. This includes how maths knowledge can be built conceptually using equipment and images; how to help children with lower attainment to build understanding; and how to provide opportunities for learning at greater depth. Training will focus on identifying the key concepts or ‘big…

Developing Bar Modelling in Key Stage 2

Course outline This course will examine effective ways to develop bar modelling in key stage two. We will explore this heuristic approach, with an overview of key stage 1 development, then focussing on progression of the abstract bar in key stage two. During this action-packed session, we will look at a variety of ways to use the bar through a plethora of problem solving and reasoning activities…

Developing Bar Modelling in Key Stage 1

Course outline This course will examine effective ways to introduce and develop bar modelling in key stage one. We will explore this heuristic approach, considering progression from concrete manipulatives through to pictorial and abstract bar representation. During this action-packed session, we will look at a variety of ways to use the bar, through a plethora of problem solving and reasoning…

Communicating mathematically KS1

Course outline This course considers the different ways we can encourage children to communicate mathematically. To be sure that our children have mastered national curriculum expectations we need to find out what they are thinking, so developing more literate mathematicians gives us an insight into their conceptual understanding. The training will explore a range of practical activities which…
