Event Description
Fluency sessions – the what, why, when and how.

A day of training which includes a complete suite of resources to support teachers back in school. Schools are aware of the need to ensure pupils are ‘fluent’ with their mathematics knowledge and skills. Many are establishing fluency sessions (also known as maths meeting or everyday fluency) to support this, but what does an effective session look like?

This one-day course will unpick the purpose of fluency sessions and outline a possible structure. Resources will be given out on the day which schools can use as a starting point. The course also includes the resources for an introductory staff meeting for launching back in school, so that mathematics subject leaders can get going straight away with implementing the sessions. The course is timed so that teachers can trial the resources in the summer term and evaluate, ready for roll-out in September.
Training objectives
Learning outcomes
By attending the course, participants will:

  • consider the rationale for developing fluency sessions – why do pupils need to be ‘fluent’ in maths and what do they need to be fluent with?

  • consider the appropriate content for fluency sessions, including what is appropriate for the year group and time in the academic year

  • explore possible structures and ways of organising sessions be given a complete suite of resources including a staff meeting introduction to use with staff and a full set of fluency session materials to use and adapt with each year group (all included within the cost of the training)
