Event description

Description


Enable students to explore and master new concepts through the Concrete-Pictorial - Abstract approach, supporting progression and depth of understanding

How can we facilitate mastery following the Discovering Mathematics approach?

Join this FREE PD session to learn about Discovering Mathematics and how it can raise standards in your school and support teaching for mastery at Key Stage 3. The top-selling secondary series in Singapore, Discovering Mathematics has been adapted for the English National Curriculum by the original author team alongside UK teachers and mastery experts. This team includes Siân Thomas, an independent maths consultant with significant experience of working with a range of schools, educational settings and at local authority level. After a successful trial across 30 schools during the Summer term, Discovering Mathematics is starting to transform Key Stage 3 teaching in the UK and this Introductory session will show you how.

The session will include an introduction and overview of the Discovering Mathematics approach, exploring the Discovering Mathematics material and looking at how the programme works across all three year groups (foundation, middle and higher)

We are delighted to announce the new maths mastery series:

On 6th February, Siân Thomas will be holding an event at The Barclay School, Stevenage.

Agenda:

  • “Open lesson”: Siân will teach a Year 7 class, exemplifying the principles and practices of teaching for mastery – you’re welcome to observe
  • Discussion: Immediately afterwards, you'll be able to discuss the lesson with Siân and each other.
  • Twilight session: Siân will talk in depth about teaching for mastery in KS3 and Discovering Mathematics. There’ll be a focus on CPA / use of manipulatives – and plenty of time for questions.
