Essential Maths: Developing Your Skills
in the Teaching of Primary Maths
Date: Monday 7th March 2016
Time: 1.30 pm - 4.30 pm
Venue: Warwickshire Golf & Country Club, Leek Wootton, CV35 7QT
This session will focus on teaching number so that learners develop their conceptual understanding and become mathematically fluent. It will help teachers new to the profession to enhance their practice to take these two aims of the new national curriculum into account.
The afternoon will focus on aspects of number including counting, place value and calculation. We will consider how concrete experiences, pictures, symbols and language all contribute to learning and will focus on both the raised expectations of the curriculum and some common misconceptions.
Teachers will work with ideas from their own phase and also consider how learning of mathematics builds across the primary years. Attendees will leave inspired to refine their own practice, will have some ideas to try in their classrooms straight away and will be aware of some free resources to support their teaching of the National Curriculum.
Led by: Vivien Townsend (Leading Primary Maths Consultant)
