Online Teacher Training
Online training enables teachers to access high quality CPD from Gareth Metcalfe, putting reasoning and problem-solving at the heart of a vibrant maths curriculum.
Ongoing sessions will explore an evidence-based approach to building a rich, coherent maths curriculum. All sessions, which are run on Zoom, give lots of practical, accessible ideas. Sessions are recorded and can be viewed by signed-up participants afterwards. The Frequently Asked Questions page answers most questions, including details of the discounts that are available for schools who wish to book multiple places and pay by invoice.
Enhancing Mathematical Reasoning in Y5 and Y6
22nd September 1 hour 30 minutes £15
Outline: In this training session we explore how the NEW I SEE REASONING resources for Y5 and Y6 can be used to deepen all children's mathematical understanding. We will see different ways in which reasoning can be embedded throughout sequences of lessons, giving all children the opportunity to think deeply. A specific focus will be placed on using the sequences of questions in the new I See Reasoning eBooks, enabling children to make predictions, notice patterns and make interesting connections. Questions for working at greater depth will also be shown. All the ideas from this session can be applied immediately in the classroom!
Addition and Subtraction in Y2-Y4: Flexibility and Depth
28th September & 7th October 4:30pm - 5:45pm £15
Outline: In this new training session, we will explore how children in Y2-Y4 become fluent in different addition and subtraction strategies. We will consider the use of visual representations and reasoning prompts to develop calculation skills and select appropriate methods. We will also look at how children learn to break down additive word questions. A range of NEW resources will be shared for developing reasoning and problem-solving in addition and subtraction for children. A very practical session with lots of ideas and resources to take away!
Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division in Y5 & Y6: Flexibility and Depth
29th September & 5th October 4:30pm - 5:45pm £15
Outline: In this new training session, we will explore how children become fluent in calculation strategies in the four operations, being able to select appropriate methods and see connections between questions. We will look at how to build a flexible understanding, strategies for embedding intelligent practice within calculation questions for extending the challenge. We will also look at helping children to interpret additive and multiplicative word questions. The latest ideas and resources will be shared to help teachers outwork these ideas!
Multiplication and Division in Y2-Y4: Flexibility and Depth
19th October & 4th November 4:30pm - 5:45pm £15
Outline: In this new training session, we will explore how children in Y2-Y4 become fluent in different multiplication and division strategies. We will consider the different forms of multiplication and division and the visual representations that can be used to build understanding. Questions and tasks will be shared for helping children to choose effective calculation strategies. We will also look at how children learn to interpret multiplicative word questions. A range of new resources will be shared for developing reasoning and problem-solving in this curriculum area. This session will help children to have long-term success in multiplicative reasoning!
Fractions in Y5 & Y6: Representations, Connections and Depth
21st October & 3rd November 4:30pm - 5:45pm £15
Outline: In this new training session, we will explore how children learn to understand different forms of fractions. We will consider how visual representations can be used to show the structure of different questions. Then, we will see how the tasks from the latest I See Reasoning eBooks can be used to develop intelligent practice in fractions and give children the opportunity to explore ideas at greater depth. A very practical session with lots of ideas to take away!
