Cross-Phase and Cross-Cohort Mastery Specialists Network Event

VENUE:
St. Paul’s Catholic College,
Jane Murray Way,
Burgess Hill RH15 8GA

DATE:
Friday 8 February

TIME:
13:00 – 15:30

The event is open to our cohort 2, 3 and 4 Mastery Specialists from both primary and secondary

This session will provide an excellent opportunity for networking and sharing best practice. There will be a chance to share favourite and successful ideas for a TRG focus, share any hub or national NCETM news or resources and be briefed about an innovation project on STEM sentences and generalisations that has been underway this year.

We would like to incorporate a ‘2 min’ teach meet style session within the afternoon- so if you would like to present a nugget of good practice – please let me know.

Stem Sentences, Generalisations and Definitions – a Course for Primary Colleagues

VENUE:

Jane Murray Way,
Burgess Hill RH15 8GA

DATE:
Wednesday 6 March

TIME:
09:30 – 15:00

This course is open to teachers of schools currently participating in a NCETM Teaching for Mastery Teacher Research Group

Stem Sentences, Generalisations and Definitions: Mathematical language as a structure to support learning and conceptual understanding.

This one-day course, newly developed by the primary mastery specialist team will:

  • Provide a rationale for this aspect of teaching for mastery in mathematics
  • Ensure participants understand the difference between stem sentences, generalisations and definitions
  • Demonstrate the power of stems sentences and generalisations in conceptual understanding and depth for all
  • Give participants the confidence and skills to use language more effectively in their own classrooms and across their schools

Places are strictly limited to 30, and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Headteacher Invitation to Mastery Event – What does teaching for mastery look like in the UK?

VENUE:
St. Paul’s Catholic College,
Jane Murray Way,
Burgess Hill RH15 8GA

DATE:
Friday 1 March

TIME:
09:15 – 13:00

This course is open to Headteachers of schools currently participating in a NCETM Teaching for Mastery Teacher Research Group

We would like to share best practice from schools and school leaders who have adopted the Teaching for Mastery approach with success in their schools. We recognise every school is different, so we will look at the ways schools have adapted the approach to fit their setting and circumstances. We will also discuss how different schools have developed practice from the initial launch to embedding practices aiming for a longer term maturity model to support school improvement priorities. 

Specialists from our Primary Mastery Team will be on hand to lead input on:

  • Fluency
  • Concrete, Pictorial & Abstract 
  • Variation Theory (Procedural & Conceptual)
  • Developing Mathematical Thinking 
  • Challenge & Support (How to provide Same Day Intervention & opportunities to work at Greater Depth)

There will be the opportunity to look at lesson resources, discuss lesson design features to support monitoring and to see outcomes in pupils’ books. We will also build in time for Q&A. 

Lunch and Refreshments will be provided.

The places for this event are funded by the Maths Hub and will allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Representation and Structure – a Course for Primary Teachers

VENUE:
St. Paul’s Catholic College,
Jane Murray Way,
Burgess Hill RH15 8GA

DATE:
Friday 15 March

TIME:
09:30 – 15:30

This course is being led by Emma Gale, a Teaching for Mastery Specialist

This FREE* one-day course is designed to support teachers in using key structures to support a mastery approach to teaching maths. During the course, participants will explore the part-part-whole model, tens frames, the bar model and language as a structure.

A demonstration lesson (with participants as pupils!) will be delivered to model how structures support learning in lessons.

Lunch and Refreshments will be provided.

*PLEASE NOTE: Your school will be charged £30 if you book a place but do not attend.

Places are strictly limited to 30, and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

NCETM Accredited PD Lead Programmes

NCETM Accredited PD Lead Programmes

NCETM Accredited PD Lead Programmes

This ongoing work in all Maths Hubs is for practitioners involved in leading the professional development of colleagues and seeking to gain accreditation as an ‘NCETM Accredited Professional Development Lead’. Participants will take part in three face-to-face days (bespoke to Early Years, Primary, Secondary or Post-16) over the course of 2018/19, together with institution-based work and individual study undertaken in between these days. They will plan, run and evaluate a professional development programme for a group of teachers and record their planning, evaluation and reflection.
