Grappling with the aims and content within the Upper Key Stage 2 (UKS2) curriculum, it is increasingly important to understand what age-related expectations should look like. Aimed at teachers working with Year 6 pupils, and taking into account the most up to date guidance, this course will support practitioners with strategies, practical ideas and resources that can be used to enable pupils to secure age-related learning by the end of the UKS2 phase.
This course will support teachers to help their pupils achieve the national standard and modify teaching to accelerate learning so that pupils achieve their potential. Delegates will investigate the key mathematical concepts that pupils find tricky alongside being given practical strategies to develop thinking using mathematical resources in the classroom.
By providing exemplifications of possible sequences of learning, teachers will develop further familiarity with the Year 6 content while developing a sequence to teach back in their own classroom tailored to suit the needs of their pupils.
This course will comprise of a suite of live webinars and pre-recorded modules. Once booked onto the course, delegates will be asked to choose between two live webinar sessions on Monday 12th October. The sessions will take place at either 1:30pm-2:30pm or 4:00pm-5:00pm. Pre-recorded materials will then be available following the sessions until Friday 23rd October. A link to the materials will be sent via email. There will then be a further 1 hour webinar on Wednesday 4th November at 4:00pm.
By attending this training, participants will:
• identify key learning in UKS2 and consider strategies to meet end of year statements
• explore structures and representations to support taught concepts in Year 6
• be supported in exploring barriers which might prevent pupils from achieving national expectations
• develop new strategies to support pupils in applying their learning in more challenging problem-solving contexts
