Is reducing the hours spent planning maths appealing? Would clear guidance and resources to plan effective teaching sequences that secure key learning help?
Then we have the answer: HfL maths team’s suite of resources that: - provide a structured approach that maps effective teaching and learning sequences of the key learning in each year group; - are adaptable to meet the needs of individual classes; - enhance teacher subject knowledge; - unpick and illustrate the concepts that need to be understood in key sequences.
This course has been designed specifically for Year 5 and 6 teachers, to make the most effective use of the ESSENTIAL maths planning resources developed by the HfL maths team. Delegates will walk through the learning sequences and key mathematical concepts in their year group. A full range of resources will be provided and delegates will explore how to adapt them to the needs of their class.
Delegates will enhance their understanding of what the end learning should look like, and connect it to maximise teaching time.
The first step to becoming a highly effective leader is firstly to understand what the role entails and how this then translates in practice to achieve the very best outcomes for all children.
Delegates will receive a comprehensive free toolkit with essential proformas to effectively support their role as an EYFS leader.
