Planning a maths themed week, or unit of work, for June and July?

To be completed by: Thu 17 May 2018

Time: -Thu 17 May 2018 | Venue:

Check out this course which is being hosted at Riddlesden St Mary's on Monday 21st May, led by Sharon Day of SharonDayMaths Ltd. It will support you with how to find and extract the mathematics in ordinary items found in school, to bring a context to mathematical learning.

This one-day course, hosted at Riddlesden St Mary’s and led by Sharon Day, will equip you with ideas on how to use mundane items around any school building to promote mathematical curiosity. It will include ideas on how to:

  • turn the ordinary into the extraordinary;
  • use everyday items and situations to engage in mathematical thinking;
  • use experiences around the school building, and beyond, to teach statutory requirements from the National Curriculum.

We will cover mathematical understanding, knowledge and skills from all Key Stage expectations from Year 1 to Year 6.

Themes will include: staircases; keys; taps; windows; doors; walls, floors & ceilings…

Time will be given for you to adapt the ideas (and even create your own!) to suit your particular settings, so bring a laptop with you to capture your thoughts.

The venue is: Riddlesden St Mary’s Primary School, Grange Road, Keighley, BD20 5AB

Audience: appropriate for Maths Subject Leaders but also other teachers who have an interest in contextual and cross-curricular maths.

The cost for the day’s training is £125.
