Enhancing Subject Knowledge for Teaching Assistants in Primary Mathematics:
KEY STAGES 1 & 2

This FREE work group is aimed at Teaching Assistants in KS1 and KS2, particularly teaching assistants who are new to their role or have moved into a new Key Stage or practitioners with little maths specific training.

During these sessions participants will:

  • Deepen and extend their own subject knowledge in mathematics;
  • Explore key structures of the primary mathematics curriculum and know a range of ways to support children to develop an understanding of these;
  • Develop some effective ways to enhance their questioning in order to support and extend the learners thinking;
  • Explore the importance of using precise mathematical vocabulary and language and how it impacts on children’s learning;
  • Understand how resources, models and images can support children’s thinking at different stages of the primary mathematics curriculum;
  • Reflect on their learning and plan to undertake follow up work in school.

This is a national NCETM work group and therefore participants will be required to:

  • Keep a reflective journal that captures the impact of the work undertaken on the course and back in school;
  • Join and make regular contributions to an online community;
  • Complete online evaluations requested by the NCETM;
  • Complete a range of gap tasks in the time between the online sessions and reflect on these within the online community and with colleagues when meeting online.

Please give careful consideration to the work involved when selecting participants from your school onto this work group. Places for this work group will be limited to one per school.

This year there will be no face-to-face meetings. Most of the work group content will be delivered online within 5 taught sessions. To supplement this, participants will be required to complete a number of tasks in their own time.

Online Session 1: Tuesday 09 March 2021 (9am – 12pm)

Online Session 2:  Thursday 25 March 2021 (9am – 12pm)

Building Reasoning and Problem-Solving into Remote Learning:

A FREE WEBINAR for the teachers of Sussex led by a team of local leaders of maths education from the Sussex Maths Hub

Would you like to develop your skill set with teaching maths remotely? Are you keen to really engage your pupils with remote lessons that develop their reasoning and problem solving? If so, look no further…because the Sussex Maths Hub would like to invite you to their next free webinar.

We are thrilled to welcome our guest host Gareth Metcalfe, the highly regarded mathematician, author of the fantastic ‘I See Reasoning’ and ‘I See Problem Solving’ e-books, and creator of the inspirational website ‘I See Maths’. Gareth, an NCETM accredited PD lead, has produced a wealth of materials to support primary mathematics and is excited to support teachers with the challenges they face teaching high quality maths remotely.

In this session, a range of techniques will be shared for building reasoning and problem-solving into remote learning activities. We will look at questions that allow children to spot patterns and find different possible answers. Then, we will see how challenges can be adapted, extended and explored in different ways. This will deepen thinking for all children and allow for creative, unique responses. An exciting vision for remote maths learning!

Our Sussex Maths Hub Team will also be on hand to field questions and foster a spirit of true collaboration. Our last webinar on remote learning was very positively received with participants commenting:

“Thank you. This was brilliant and very useful!”

“Very useful. Thank you so much!”

“Thank you! Lots of brilliant ideas and helpful resources.”

“Lots to go away and think about/share.”

So, don’t delay…book you place now, pull up a chair, pour a cup of tea and get ready to be inspired!
