Mental maths: the secrets to success in Key Stage 1
Five reasons why we should teach mental maths to our pupils: 1. it develops deep conceptual understanding, increasing their overall understanding of number 2. it relieves cognitive load and frees working memory allowing them to focus on new learning 3. it is a critical life skill 4. it increases confidence in and enjoyment of maths 5. it will improve their overall achievement in mathematics.
How do we, as teachers, ensure that all pupils are provided with an enabling learning environment that allows them to develop varied, adaptive and efficient calculation strategies?
This course is supported by the HfL Mental Maths progression document which provides teachers and pupils with a sequenced approach so that new knowledge and skills systematically build on previous learning. Come and enjoy a day full of practical ideas that will ignite your pupils’ ability to work mentally with facts at their fingertips and strategies aplenty. This course is aimed at KS1 teachers and is part of the suite of mental mathematics: the secret to success courses.
This course is for teachers who are new to, or returning to, teaching in Year 6.
We will explore the statutory requirements for assessing pupil’s attainment in the core subjects at Key Stage 2 this year and consider strategies for supporting pupils in their learning journey towards achieving the expected standards.
We will also consider how the Herts for Learning assessment resources, including the HfL writing year group ‘TAFs’, can help delegates to track pupils’ progress and support their planning and teaching throughout the year. (These materials are non-statutory and some schools may have adopted a different approach to assessment. The course will still be relevant even if that is the case.)
