Microscopic progression in calculations

One of the key tenets of the mastery curriculum is having a narrow focus in each lesson and introducing procedural and conceptual variation in order to build difficulty incrementally, This WG seeks to address the issue in the area of calculations by using materials successfully developed by the London South West Maths Hub. Delegates will not only engage in discussion on the micro-steps involved within calculations, but also get to see it in practise through a live lesson demonstration.

Target audience: KS1, KS2 and KS3 teachers of mathematics

Mathematics subject knowledge training for Teaching Assistants

This subject knowledge enhancement programme for TAs is being offered to Teaching Assistants working in the Primary phase and KS3. TA subject knowledge training last year proved to be very successful. In light of this, the current work group has been developed to support subject knowledge and improved professional practice of TAs and to address the demand since TAs have often been under deployed and their training has been patchy.
This 4-part professional development session with a school based activity will lead to wider impact for delegates’ own practice and the schools involved.

Target audience: EY, KS1, KS2, KS3 Teaching Assistants

 Day 1 – 1st March 2017

Shanghai-style Intelligent Questioning – Cross school Lesson Study

To keep the momentum of the secondary phase of the England-China exchange, this work group has been designed to bring on new schools who may not have been involved previously or had a chance to think about how they can bring about elements of mastery into their planning and teaching. With the increased demands of the new GCSE curriculum, this WG has been designed to show schools that with one aspect of planning and lesson design being addressed with the mastery pedagogy, there can be significant impact on pupil learning.
