Reaching Out - Supporting low attaining students in Year 7
Wed 17 May 2017, 09:00 – 15:15 BST
Day 1 - 17th May Day Two - 4th July
This is a fully funded training opportunity for teachers working with children in year 7.
This two day programme will support participants in the teaching of their least able year 7 students, and rather than plugging gaps, or providing quick fixes, will lay effective thinking foundations upon which the rest of secondary school mathematics can build.
You will be provided with a set of resources that can be used to respond to the learning needs of the least able pupils in Year 7 and beyond. Based upon the Primary CAME (Cognitive Acceleration through Maths Education or Thinking Maths) materials, the Reaching Out resource pack seeks to develop the thinking that underpins the key areas of mathematical reasoning; Data handling, Ratio, Shape and Space, Number and Algebra.
The course is practical and will involve lesson observations, and it is hoped that the group will be involved in the further development of the resources.
On Day 1 the resources will be introduced, planned and a lesson observed.
Day 2 will enable participants to:
· reflect upon their practice in school,
· try some team/group teaching,
· be involved in the development of additional resources to supplement the pack.

The programme will be delivered by Alan Edmiston. Formally a Primary and Secondary teacher with 20 years experience, Alan now works as an education consultant, specialising in lesson design and the use of Cognitive Acceleration techniques to enrich classroom learning.
The sessions form part of a funded programme which require you to complete pre and post course evaluations, and to attend both dates. Failure to attend or submit evaluations will result in a £30 charge to your school.
In addition to course, support visits are available. If you think you would be interested in a support/teaching visit from the course tutor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org . Please note that support visits have a cost of £225 associated to them. This is purely optional and is not a requirement of the programme.
