Event description
An informal meeting for all interested in sharing good practice around teaching Maths to pupils with English as an Additional Language(EAL).

About this Event

Focus Area: The language demands of SATs - with a Maths focus.

This will be an opportunity for teachers to share and discuss current good practice and/or particular areas of challenge on this topic; please bring along samples of Maths SATs or pupils' work if you wish. Better Bilingual will signpost to helpful EAL resources, approaches and training opportunities to further develop 'the language of Maths', particularly in a 'test' context.

Facilitated by: Catherine Brennan & Stephen Bray - Better Bilingual Senior Consultants
