BUCKS EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP IS PROUD TO BE PART OF HERTS FOR LEARNING

The Business Management team at Herts for Learning (HfL) is offering a Sustainable Schools workshop to support financial management and efficiency in maintained schools. It is evident that pressure on school budgets is likely to be sustained in the short to medium term and the workshops are designed to consider this context.  

While there have been recent Government announcements on additional funding for schools, the detail is not yet clear and we feel it is important that schools are supported through a challenging financial period.

Code: MAT/20/208/P Going for greater depth and the higher standard in primary mathematics

BUCKS EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP IS PROUD TO BE PART OF HERTS FOR LEARNING

Is developing teaching to ‘pitch work at the correct level for the most able’ or ‘set work which consistently challenges and stretches the most able’ or ‘improve teaching of the most able so they achieve higher standards’ a school focus?

Understanding exactly what this means and looks like in the classroom is hard. Pupils who are quick at calculating and getting the right answer might seem secure and ready for the challenge. But do they have depth of understanding? Can they explain their thinking or apply it independently to a different context? Why is it that even when providing opportunities for deeper thinking pupils do not reach the higher standard by the end of the key stage?

This course, suitable for subject leaders, Key Stage 1 and 2 teachers, will explore how to move pupils through the programme of study ‘at broadly the same pace’ whilst providing opportunities to challenge all pupils. Using simple, yet elegant, approaches ways to add depth and challenge to tasks suitable for all by adding reasoning, varying representations, asking ‘what if?’ and developing independence will be developed. Exploring how to convert greater depth into more pupils reaching the higher standard will also be focused upon by considering what else needs to happen.

Code: MAT/20/219/P Developing effective fluency sessions in primary mathematics

BUCKS EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP IS PROUD TO BE PART OF HERTS FOR LEARNING

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 which schools can use as a starting point. This includes 18 teacher PowerPoints, an introductory staff meeting for launching back in school and a guidance document, so that mathematics subject leaders can get going straight away with implementation. We will explore how to launch and implement fluency sessions effectively, so that they have maximum impact.

Code: MAT/20/209/P Developing reasoning to problem solve in primary mathematics

BUCKS EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP IS PROUD TO BE PART OF HERTS FOR LEARNING

How can we support our pupils to become more confident problem solvers? How can we teach them to reason in order to find a starting point to unfamiliar problems?

This practical course will support Year 1 to Year 6 teachers to develop an approach to problem solving grounded in curriculum expectations. It will consider the key skills required to solve problems including how to reason to find an entry point to unfamiliar problems.

It will also consider how to support pupils to develop their reasoning so that they can effectively communicate their findings.
