Talking Transition: A FREE Follow Up session on Supporting a Smooth Transition between KS2 and KS3, with Guest Speaker Alison Hopper, MEI.

‘Minimising the gaps to maximise progress between KS2-KS3 in maths’

Do you teach maths in Year 5, 6, 7 or 8? Are you a maths lead, senior lead or head of department? Would you like to collaborate with colleagues from both primary and secondary schools in your local area to talk tactics regarding maximising pupil progress and success around the issue of transition from KS2-KS3?

If so, please sign up for the next lively and informative CPD opportunity hosted by the friendly, approachable and experienced team of primary and secondary mastery specialist teachers from the Sussex Maths Hub. We are delighted to be joined, once again, by our guest expert, Alison Hopper from MEI who will be on hand to offer her expertise and insights in how to manage KS2-KS3 transition in maths most effectively in our post-lockdown climate.

Our last session culminated in the Maths Hub sharing a plethora of resources to support pedagogy, teaching and learning. We will be adding to our bank of resources and exploring key strands of mathematics, such as ratio, more deeply. There will be plenty of opportunity at this session to get to grips with progression in concepts and share insights about how this year’s cohort of Year Six pupils may have different strengths and development areas than the typical cohort at the end of KS2. We will explore the implications this has for teachers in Years 5, 6, 7 & 8.

Here’s some feedback from our last session:

“I was very interested in hearing from the speaker from MEI.”

“Amazing well-prepared and organised session. Loved the range of voices and perspectives. Padlet is a really great ‘take away’. Thanks to all.”

“Thank you very much for this really informative webinar. The resources look great and I’m looking forward to using them in my class and sharing them with other colleagues.”

“Thank you all! Another excellent webinar run by Sussex Maths Hub.”

So don’t delay, secure your place and sign up today using the link below. Then sit back, with your microphone and camera plugged in and get ready to be part of a conversation that we hope will have a really positive impact on the lives of the young people in our care. It is always exciting to have KS2 and KS3 practitioners working together to share ideas and best practice. We can learn from each other, network and enhance our knowledge to make transition post-Covid as successful as possible.

FREE WEBINAR: Supporting a Smooth Transition between KS2 and KS3, with Guest Speaker Alison Hopper, MEI.

What does ‘Secondary Ready’ look like post-lockdown?

How can we most effectively work together in 2021 in the best interest of children?

Are you a teacher in KS2 or a maths teacher or department lead in KS3? Are you interested in teaching for mastery and delving deeper into the curriculum implications of the latest lockdown? Would you like to be part of the conversation about how we should prioritise the curriculum in 2021-22 in order to best prepare pupils in upper KS2 for secondary school success? Are you interested in working with teachers in both KS2 and KS3 to focus on pedagogy in mathematics teaching and learning?

If so, sign up to the latest free webinar on offer from the Sussex Maths Hub on Wednesday 17th March at 4pm. We have invited Alison Hopper from MEI along as our guest speaker alongside a panel made up of mastery specialist teachers from our primary and secondary team. Alison Hopper has done extensive work for the NCETM & MEI on transition and leads on the Year 5 – Year 8 programme. MEI offer a wealth of user-friendly resources and Alison will be our expert guide to explore these materials and discuss how you can use them to support planning, teaching and assessment.

Our team have examined the NCETM guidance from 2020 on Shaping the Y7 Curriculum: Building on Year 6 – which we recommend participants might want to dip into as a useful starting point for our discussions. This webinar aims to promote further liaison between KS2 and KS3 teachers on the curriculum and transition to improve continuity and progression from Y5-Y8. We will share findings from our survey of secondary teachers to reveal the core skills and concepts they would value in a new pupil in Year 7 this September. The session will support Year 6 teachers in prioritising the content they deliver in the summer term and support secondary teachers in considering which aspects of their Year 7 programme of study may need to be amended to best meet the needs of their new learners.

Please join us for a lively, informative and topical debate. At the Sussex Maths Hub, we believe collaboration has never been more important.

Don’t delay…book your place now, and then pull up a chair, grab a beverage of choice and get ready to join the conversation!

Here’s what colleagues commented after our last webinar: 

  • “Excellent session, practically presented and made huge sense. Thanks”
  • “Great information and resources that I will definitely be using and sharing with staff.”
  • “Thank you once again for this latest in series of superb webinars which not only give much food for thought but also provide a focal point for work groups while we cannot get into schools and observe lessons.”
  • “It was the most well spent hour of my day! So much information crammed into such a short period of time and very well delivered. I loved your energy. Accessing training this way (through webinars) is so good! It’s easy, quick, full of information and no travel involved! Thank you again.”

This course is run by Durrington Research School in conjunction with Sussex Maths Hub and will also draw upon work done by the NCETM and the Maths Hub Programme.

This three-day programme, led by Deb Friis, will explore the 8 recommendations from the EEF Guidance Report for KS2 and KS3 Mathematics and look at how these can be implemented.

With the change in emphasis in maths over recent years towards deepening understanding and solving problems, this course looks in detail at the recommendations set out by the EEF.

Delegates will begin by discussing current beliefs about mathematics and the research background for the guidelines. They will then explore how teaching can be tweaked to turn our students into mathematicians able to cope with the new demands of the curriculum.

Each of the recommendations will be worked through in turn with the help of visiting NCETM Specialist guest speakers, and practical applications in the classroom will be explored. Delegates will look at how these can be introduced to other members of their maths teaching teams. Finally, implementation strategies will be discussed and each delegate will come up with an action plan for their own setting.

This is an online course made up of 9 2-hour modules. The Target Audience: is Primary Maths Leads with responsibility for KS2, and Teachers of Maths at KS3.

Supporting Distance Learning in Maths

Are you ready to provide distance learning from September? Would you like to have a better insight into how colleagues around Sussex are developing their whole school approaches to this issue? Would you and your team benefit from swapping notes and sharing top tips on managing lessons remotely?

This webinar aims to share practical tips, example lessons and strategies to support children who are learning from home with a focus on introducing new learning. The DfE has said that: “Schools are expected to consider how to continue to improve the quality of their existing offer and have a strong contingency plan in place for remote education provision by the end of September.”

At the Sussex Maths Hub our own team have been working hard to innovate and develop their own practice along with their colleagues. Please join us for this informative and user-friendly session (with the opportunity for Q & A) with Emma Gale (Assistant Maths Hub Lead) and Lauren Clowes (Primary Mastery Specialist Teacher).
