The Sutton Trust report ‘What Makes Great Teaching’ identifies teachers’ content knowledge, including their ability to understand how students think about a subject and identify common misconceptions, as one of the two factors with the strongest evidence of improving pupil attainment. This course aims to develop exactly this kind of knowledge.

Each session will look at a different aspect of number and calculation (addition, subtraction, multiplication & division, fractions). Where relevant we will reference the  National Curriculum and  mastery approaches to teaching maths, though our primary aim is to develop great teaching and learning in calculation regardless of the specific curriculum being taught.

The course is designed for a pair of teachers from your school – this will achieve the greatest impact on practice across early KS2.  However, this year we will also accept bookings from one teacher from a school.

The cost includes:

  • Two full days and two half days of CPD; during the final day we will plan for maths development back in school the following year.
  • Access to all the resources used on the programme which should support further professional development in school.
  • Teachers returning to school full of ideas, knowledge and enthusiasm!

  • Thursday 17th October 2019: full day – 9.00am – 4.00pm
