A Focus on Fluency: Reflecting on practice post-lockdown and making practical decisions to support children in making progress.

This is a FREE WEBINAR, led by guest speaker Clare Christie. Clare is an SLE from Bristol, key member of the Boolean Maths Hub and co-developer of the NumberSense website.

Would you like to develop or refine your whole school approach to teaching fluency? Are you keen to engage with other primary teachers who share your goals and vision to support children with developing their sense of number? Would you like the opportunity to see some of the free resources and materials that are available to support teachers and schools and discuss how they can best be used to help children make tangible progress? Have you already seen the benefits of using structure and representation such as tens frames to do this and teaching fluency strategies explicitly or are you keen to find out more about these aspects of adopting a Teaching for Mastery approach?

At the Sussex Maths Hub, our mastery specialist team are reflecting on the best way to give children firm foundations in fluency in a post-lockdown environment. We are thrilled to have secured guest speaker, Clare Christie (SLE from Bristol, key member of the Boolean Maths Hub and co-developer of the NumberSense website) to join us for our next webinar. Clare has many years of experience as a mastery specialist/ maths hub lead and is a regular collaborator with the NCETM on resources such as the Professional Development Spines and DfE/ NCETM Ready to Progress Materials.

We would like to invite you to join us for what we hope will be a very lively, informative and enjoyable session that will enable us all to stop the clock, put the kettle on and have a cup of tea whilst we spend an hour with ‘A Focus on Fluency’. Clare will lead a presentation that looks at progression in fluency skills and key ways to support pupils in developing a strong sense of number that will be a firm foundation for the primary years and beyond. The panel will also be made up of our own primary team who will be ready to pose your questions to Clare and share their own experiences from their own schools.

This webinar is aimed at all practitioners working in primary schools including maths leads and senior leaders. 

Here’s what colleagues commented after our last webinar:

  • Great training – plenty to reflect on and think about the relevance to your own setting.
  • Thank you for organising the event. It was great CPD for all my staff !
  • Fantastic that this was available to so many people. Thank you.
  • This was a great webinar – at times I can find Maths webinars a bit intimidating as there can be lots of high level language, but this was very accessible.
  • Loved it!
