Mastery: what does it mean and how can we achieve it?
With research-based resources and rigorous teaching support from nursery to Year 6, the Numicon whole-school approach enables all teachers to teach the higher expectations of the 2014 National Curriculum with confidence.
The Numicon approach, centred around three guiding principles: communicating mathematically; generalizing; and making connections, allows children to understand, confidently explore and master abstract mathematical concepts and ensures consistency in teaching and learning across the primary phase.
In this FREE half-day workshop we will:
• Demonstrate how to track children’s mastery of key mathematical concepts and progress throughout the year
• Exemplify how this approach enables you to formatively assess mathematical knowledge and understanding accurately
• Clarify how Numicon meets all National Curriculum aims and objectives for every key stage
• Illustrate how Numicon embodies the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach through low-threshold/ high-ceiling activities
• Show you how Numicon can help all your pupils achieve in mathematics
When: Monday 28th November 2016, 1.30-4.30pm
Where: Sir Joseph Williamson's Mathematical School, Maidstone Road, Rochester, Kent, ME1 3EL.
