Two years ago I ran a workshop for our parents to explain how we were developing the four calculations with our learners. Parents had the opportunity to try working practically, pictorially and using written methods.
This half term I am running another workshop, but I don’t want to just repeat what I shared previously. I want to explain how our approach to teaching and learning in maths has developed over the past 5 years. So this time we are going to focus on:
- The National Curriculum: Aims, Domains and progressive objectives
- Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract
- Multiple representations
- Variation theory
- Question types
- Use of Pre-Assessments and SOLO Learning Journeys
- Learn Its (for school and Home Learning)
My aim is to make much of the evening discussion based, with practical examples for parents to try out. My hope is that they find it interesting, informative and enjoyable.
