This course will support Year 1 and Year 2 teachers in helping their pupils achieve the national standard at the end of Key Stage 1 by modifying teaching to accelerate learning so that pupils maximise their potential. This will include tackling the key mathematical concepts that children find tricky and exploring teaching strategies to guide them towards success. Delegates will be given practical strategies and resources to develop thinking and reasoning, including using practical maths resources in the classroom.
Grappling with the aims and content within the Key Stage 1 curriculum and the Teacher Assessment Framework (TAF), it is increasingly important to understand what age-related expectations should look like. The course will look at the TAF for use from 2018/19 onwards to ensure that teachers are ready to adapt the learning appropriately. The training has been adapted in line with updates to DfE guidance.
Delegates will be invited to register on to the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) where they will be able to access a live launch webinar which will take place on Wednesday 26th January at 3:45pm to introduce delegates to the materials, support with further access to the VLE and to answer any questions.
A second live webinar will then take place on Wednesday 9th March at 3:45pm to allow delegates to ask questions, discuss the training content and reflect on implementation in the classroom with KS1 class teachers and a member of the Herts for Learning maths team.
- identify key learning in the Teacher Assessment Framework in Key Stage 1 and consider strategies to meet end of year statements
- explore barriers which might prevent pupils from achieving national expectations
- develop new strategies to support pupils in applying their learning in more challenging problem-solving and reasoning contexts
- be provided with many ideas that can be adapted immediately in classrooms
The cost of the course is £129 (excluding VAT) per delegate.
Delegates are expected to attend both live webinars and complete the pre-recorded materials within the time stated.
