Primary Mathematics Network Meetings

Primary Network Meetings will be taking place this term via Zoom. In the autumn term, we discussed the recent DfE non-statutory guidance (or ready to progress criteria) as well as numberless word problems. We will be continuing with the theme of problem solving this spring term as well as discussing materials for Census 2021.

You can either book your place on Eventbrite or contact me directly for an invoiced booking.

Primary Headteachers’ Update – Spring 2021

Our Primary Headteachers’ Update take place every term. In the current circumstances, these are taking place on Zoom which does allow HTs from all over the country to come together for a one stop shop update in assessment, english, maths, science and PE. We record the sessions so that if you are not able to stay for the whole morning, you can catch up on the parts you missed, making this a very flexible way to attend.

At these meeting we share ideas, resources, opportunities and share key messages for HTs to discuss with their subject leads.

A great value event.

Catch-up training

It’s been a very challenging term for everyone and it’s been a very steep learning curve learning to deliver virtual CPD. I’ve delivered the primary mathematics to various clusters and groups within Staffordshire and beyond. It may not have been easy to attend so you might be interested in my catch up recording of the session. Download and watch at your convenience (with a cup of tea and mince pie). Of course if you prefer me to invoice you, that’s no problem, contact me for details.

We also was able to provide a one stop catch-up of updates for English, Mathematics, Science, Assessment, PE and SEND. This is amazing value at £50 for the recording and all supporting documents. Watch this to hear suggestions on how to work with your Subject Leaders and develop these areas within your school. Visit Accelerate Learning Services to purchase this recording.

Autumn term 2020 on-line CPD programme

It is going to be a very strange autumn term where it is unlikely that I will be able to be in school delivering CPD face to face (at least in the first half term).

However technology has shown us that we don’t always have to be in the same room to come together. I am offering on-line sessions every Tuesday during September and October 2020 after school using the Zoom platform at a great price of £20 – from my home to wherever you are.

See the shop for further details.

CPD for you at home

I have a number of on-line CPD sessions available for purchase. These can be downloaded and then enjoyed at your convenience for the bargain price of £20 per title (until mid Sept). It’s been a strange experience recording them at my home but all are hands on learning and I hope give pause for thought, ideas and practical ideas to use in the classroom or develop within your own school. These might form part of your maths CPD for the year as we work in very different circumstances. Visit Teachers Courses and Resources to purchase.

There are 10 titles in total spanning KS1 and 2. At the moment, it seems unlikely I can be with you in school during Autumn 1 but I can be with you virtually. You may prefer (or not!) to interact with me (in a live sense) so all of these sessions can be delivered from my house to your socially distanced space – contact me for details.
