Description

ODST cross-trust Mathematics CPD 2019-20

A wide range of CPD sessions for teachers and TAs, led by Mathematics consultant Nathan Crook.

Please see dates and session information below to ensure you book the right sessions for you:


What we have learned from the 2019 SATs in Key Stage 2 – linked with implications for future learning and teaching
Date and time: Tuesday 17 September, 2019 (1.30pm-4.00pm),
Church Mission Society, Watlington Rd, Oxford OX4 6BZ
Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders and teachers from upper Key-Stage 2
This session will explore key themes that were evident in the 2019 Key Stage 2 SATs papers, as well as clarifying effective approaches that will allow children to become fluent and flexible thinkers, whilst developing a secure understanding of key concepts.

Moving from counting to calculation and securing firm foundations in children’s early mathematical understanding
Date and time:
Tuesday 1st October, 2019 (9.30am-12.00pm)
Church Mission Society, Watlington Rd, Oxford OX4 6BZ

Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders, EYFS teachers and support staff
Join this ‘hands-on’ workshop to develop a secure understanding about not only the broad range of counting experiences that children benefit from gaining, but also important early maths skills that make accessing calculation later on possible.
N/B: Any schools who have been represented at Early Years Work Groups organised by the BBO/Enigma Maths Hubs or the Oxfordshire Early Years team in the last two years should send different teachers/members of support staff.


Taking children deeper with their mathematics learning in Key Stage 1
Date and time:
Friday 11th October, 2019 (1.30pm-4.00pm), Unipart Conference Centre, Unipart House, Cowley, Oxford, OX4 6LN
Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders and teachers from Key Stage 1
This workshop will develop teachers’ understanding about a range of approaches that can be used to support children with building on firm foundations and going deeper with their learning in maths. A range of curriculum areas will be explored, alongside elicitation of teaching strategies that will allow learners to illustrate the accessing of ‘greater depth’ descriptors as published by the NCETM.

Supporting children to become fluent and flexible thinkers when working on calculations - TAs
Date and time: Monday 2nd Dec, 2019, Unipart Conference Centre, Unipart House, Cowley, Oxford, OX4 6LN
TWO SESSIONS:
9.30am-12.00pm - KEY STAGE 1
1.30pm-4.00pm - KEY STAGE 2

Who should attend: Teaching Assistants
This session will elicit child-centred progression in calculation. The need for learners to access a mental strategy toolbox to support them with solving calculations will be the initial focus. After, time will be spent modelling progression in written calculations as part of a Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach.


Developing children’s conceptual understanding of fractions
Date and time: Thursday 27th February, 2020 (1.30pm-4.00pm), Unipart Conference Centre, Unipart House, Cowley, Oxford, OX4 6LN
Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders and teachers from upper Key-Stage 2
In the 2019 Key Stage 2 SATs papers, the prominence of fractions was even stronger than ever. This session will therefore explore the multiple contexts in which fractions need to be understood by children. As there is a significant need for pupils to develop strong visualisation skills related to fractions, ways of helping them to make connections between a range of images will be presented as part of the session and in the spirit or taking children deeper with their learning.


Adding depth and challenge to children’s mathematical learning
Date and time: Tuesday 3rd March, 2020 (1.30pm-4.00pm) venue tbc
Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders and teachers from lower Key-Stage 2
Using a Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach, this workshop will elicit how depth and greater depth can be built in to children’s learning, whilst using the NCETM’s descriptors as guidance. A range of curriculum areas will be explored, so that generic principles can become well-understood.

Developing children’s learning linked with pattern, shape, space and measure
Date and time: Tuesday 17th March, 2020 (9.30am-12.00pm),
Church Mission Society, Watlington Rd, Oxford OX4 6BZ
Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders, EYFS teachers and support staff
This workshop will highlight the significance of children securing firm foundations in their understanding of pattern, as research indicates that where this is the case, they will advance to better access learning related to number. In addition, rich learning opportunities linked more generally with shape, space and measure will also be provided.
N/B: Any schools who have been represented at an Early Years Work Group organised by the Oxfordshire Early Years team in 2019 should send different teachers/members of support staff.


Developing children’s algebraic reasoning
Date and time:
Friday 20th March, 2020 (1.30pm-4.00pm), Church House, Langford Locks, Kidlington, Oxford, OX5 1GF
Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders and teachers from Key-Stage 1
This practical workshop will allow participants to understand progression in algebra after children have moved from Early Years and as they advance through Key Stage 1. Opportunities for developing early algebraic thinking within the National Curriculum will be highlighted, whilst learning and skills that pupils will consequently secure understanding around will be elicited. N/B: The pattern aspect of this session will overlap with that covered alongside Early Years colleagues.

Working diagnostically alongside children to advance key aspects of learning - TAs
Date and time: Monday 30th March 2020, Wheatley CE Primary School
TWO SESSIONS:
9.30am-12.00pm - KEY STAGE 1
1.30pm-4.00pm - KEY STAGE 2

Who should attend: Teaching Assistants
This session will take place at Wheatley Primary School and allow small group work alongside groups of children to take place as part of an innovative CPD model whereby Teaching Assistants will observe learning and teaching to determine enabling factors that allow pupils’ learning to be advanced. A focus will be put on determining particular teaching strategies that make a positive difference. Learning linked with children’s current stages of progression will be chosen.


Developing the learning and teaching of times-tables
Date and time: TBC
Who should attend: Maths subject-leaders and teachers from lower Key-Stage 2
Ahead of the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) being fully implemented with Year 4 children in June, 2020, join this practical workshop to develop understanding about how pupils can be encouraged to learn times-table facts with understanding over time. A range of ideas will be provided, which will aim to ensure learning and teaching approaches are developed that use manipulatives, models and images to illustrate multiplication facts alongside connected division ones. In addition, participants will elicit how an assortment of engaging games can be introduced that allow children to apply use of these facts with flexibility as part of the learning process.


All sessions will aim to finish slightly ahead of the advertised time above, i.e. 9.30am-11.50am or 1.30pm-3.50pm.
