This is aimed at developing computational thinking to develop mathematical thinking
in upper Key Stage 2. Schools who register to take part are randomised into to 2 groups (cohort 1 and cohort 2) but have to be
2 form entry or bigger schools.
The first cohort will receive free training and teaching materials to deliver approximately 20 one hour sessions a year starting in September 2015 and completing the project in June 2017. The lessons will be delivered to Year 5 in the first
year and then the same class (then Year 6) in year 2.The second cohort of schools will do the same but their start will be delayed until September 2016 and completing in June 2018.
This is a big commitment from schools but Paul Scott visited the pilot schools in London and they were extremely enthusiastic about the impact this was having on their pupils and the way it was accelerating achievement in maths. He is very confident this
project would help schools where maths attainment is a concern.
We need a minimum of 15 schools to participate. After a launch event in February we have the following schools who have registered:
- Frizinghall Primary
- Long Lee & Ingrow Federation
- Shibden Head Primary
- St Matthew’s C of E Primary
- Thackley Primary
- Parkinson Lane Primary (Calderdale)
- Killinghall Primary
Further details can be found here and schools who want to sign up need to complete the Memorandum Of Understanding
attached below. We have until Easter to achieve the minimum numbers or the Hub will not go ahead and the registered schools will not be able to take part. This would be a great disappointment for the registered schools and to Bradford as
the Hub Lead.
If you would like further information please contact Paul Scott
