Description

This programme of six half-day training sessions provides an opportunity for newly qualified teachers to continue to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding required to become expert teachers of mathematics in Years 1-6. Topics covered will include:

  • developing pupils’ fluency in number facts;
  • teaching the four operations with understanding;
  • developing rapid recall of multiplication and division facts;
  • building mathematical reasoning into daily teaching sequences;
  • identifying pupils’ misconceptions and assessing mathematics;
  • mastery approach to planning and teaching mathematics.

NQTs will be able to select the sessions that will be most helpful to their development or attend them all for a discounted rate.

Details of the learning outcomes for each session are detailed below.

The trainer for this event is Lorraine Woollven.


Session 1: Developing pupils’ fluency in number facts

Date and time: 6 November 2017, 13:00-16:00 Venue: Weston College Conference Centre

NQTs will:

  • explore how to develop pupils’ recall and fluency in the fundamentals of mathematics;
  • demonstrate how fluency and conceptual understanding can be developed in tandem;
  • explore how mental fluency can be developed alongside a problem-solving approach to the curriculum;
  • look at how manipulatives can be used to support a mastery approach to the curriculum.

Session 2: Teaching the four operations with understanding

Date and time: 20 November 2017, 13:00-16:00 Venue: Weston College Conference Centre

NQTs will:

  • develop a clear understanding of the progression in calculation strategies for multiplication, division, addition and subtraction;
  • explore how physical resources, models and images can be used to support children’s understanding of calculation;
  • explore approaches to enable pupils to deepen their understanding of calculation.

Session 3: Developing rapid recall of multiplication and division facts

Date and time: 29 January 2018, 13:00-16:00 Venue: Weston College Conference Centre

NQTs will:

  • explore how a broad understanding of fluency is essential to embed deep and permanent learning of key multiplication facts;
  • investigate routines and strategies that help children to memorise key facts;
  • create a culture where ‘remembering’ is important;
  • explore how developing reasoning alongside the expectation of fluent recall is crucial to secure understanding.

Session 4: Building mathematical reasoning into daily teaching sequences

Date and time: 19 March 2018, 13:00-16:00 Venue: Weston College Conference Centre

NQTs will:

  • have an increased awareness of how tasks can be opened up to enable reasoning and a more interconnected understanding of a topic;
  • consider how pupils think about the mathematics and make connections to find solutions;
  • explore sources of different materials that can be freely accessed to support planning for reasoning.

Session 5: Identifying pupils’ misconceptions and assessing mathematics

Date and time: 14 May 2018, 13:00-16:00 Venue: Weston College Conference Centre

NQTs will:

  • explore common misconceptions and how these can be used to develop secure understanding;
  • review different, freely available assessment materials to support summative judgments and identify next steps for the learner;
  • engage in a practical workshop to support assessing mathematics against the requirements of the national curriculum.

Session 6: Mastery approach to planning and teaching mathematics

Date and time: 11 June 2018, 13:00-16:00 Venue:

NQTs will:

  • explore uses for the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) ‘Teaching for Mastery’ questions, tasks and activities to support assessment;
  • have an increased awareness of the materials freely available to support, challenge and deepen understanding within the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 programme of study;
