The National Curriculum for Mathematics aims to ensure that all learners: become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, reason mathematically by thinking about relationships and can solve problems by applying their mathematics to increasingly complex problems. This session is designed to develop a deep conceptual understanding of learners’ mathematical reasoning. We will also explore the importance of effective questioning in developing these skills since the quality and variety of language that learners hear and speak are key factors in developing their mathematical vocabulary and presenting a mathematical justification, argument or proof.
This session will take place at St Thomas’ Priory Golf Club, Hawkesyard, Armitage (WS15 1PU).
Caroline Holder, Jane George, Jenny Hart, Karen Lawley, Vanessa Brown and Wendy Precious are all highly experienced, knowledgeable consultants; qualified teachers; DBS checked and fully insured with a proven track record of working with schools to strengthen subject knowledge and pedagogy – thus improving outcomes for learners in Mathematics, English, Science and PE.
This meeting will give you as a HT an overview of the latest developments in mathematics, English, science, PE and assessment as well as key questions to discuss with your subject leaders back in school. Click on this link for timings and programme.
Inspiring Maths works in conjunction with Jenny Hart, Karen Lawley and Wendy Precious to deliver termly network meetings in Burton, Tamworth and Lichfield to develop and inform subject leadership in English, maths and science. These affordable and valuable meetings will inform subject leaders about the latest national and local developments and give a real opportunity to network and share practice at a cost of £50 per person.
