Enriching mathematical experiences for all learners

For the last two years, we have worked with Nrich to offer high quality support and training for mathematics for maths subject leaders and other interested teachers.
This year we are again working with Nrich , offering a series of three Primary Maths days across the year.

This popular series has run in Cambridge for a number of years as part of Nrich’s Primary CPD menu. We are pleased to be able to offer this to schools in the South West.

It will be led by Fran Watson who delivered the popular 'Progression in Reasoning' programme for Bristol subject leaders in 2015/16 and 2016/17

Aim:
To support Mathematics Leaders in nurturing confident, resourceful and enthusiastic teachers and learners of mathematics in their schools by:

• Enriching mathematical experiences for all learners.
• Offering challenging and engaging activities.
• Developing mathematical thinking and problem solving skills.
• Showing mathematics in meaningful contexts.
• Enriching the experience of the mathematics curriculum.

This trio of days will draw on the recent Smith report, and recommendations from ACME and Ofsted to support primary teachers and leaders of mathematics in inspiring and engaging their learners and colleagues. ​Whether you are an existing or aspiring subject leader, a teacher seeking mathematical motivation or are already a regular NRICH PD attendee, we look forward to welcoming you and working together.

All sessions are held at Whitehall Primary School, Bristol, BS5 9AT

Session 1 - Tuesday 7th November: 9.00 - 3.15pm
1. Teaching Mathematics - So you think you know NRICH?

Come and explore new ways to use rich mathematical resources to develop problem-solving, reasoning and fluency skills in your classroom. We will consider pedagogical approaches that rely on teachers questioning answers, rather than answering questions. Discover the value of incomplete solutions, in encouraging learners to look for alternative approaches and elegant solutions.

There will be a chance to review what you think you know about NRICH (including some mathematical myth-busting), be inspired by some new additions and connect with our latest project focus.

Session 2. Thursday 8th March 2018 - 9.00 - 3.15pm
Knowing Mathematics - Making the most of mistakes

Einstein said, “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” At NRICH we think curiosity is the key to knowledge and as the focus of our latest project, we’re inviting primary teachers and mathematics leaders to come and enhance their subject specific knowledge by being curious.

Here we will take the time to examine and plan for common misconceptions in primary mathematics, consider when to introduce cognitive conflict to build resilience and perseverance, and explore ways in which mistake-making can be a powerful pedagogical tool for good.

Session 3 - Thursday 7th June 2018 - 9.00 - 3.15pm Enthusing Mathematicians - Leading learners

Inspiring a love of mathematics, whether in colleagues or your classroom, is an exciting and multifarious task! As part of this programme we will share with you some of our newest resources designed to promote mathematical curiosity and inspire awe and wonder. You will have the opportunity to seek and share innovative impactful ideas, expand your own enthusiasm for the subject and gain some reflective perspective as part of a supportive professional community.
