New Training Videos, August 2021:

The four all-new training videos are about 60 minutes long and, with pauses to complete tasks, will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. Here's more information about each session:

Embedding Reasoning Routines

This session explores how to make mathematical reasoning a habit for all children. We define mathematical reasoning habits, then we consider how these qualities can be developed. An emphasis is placed on developing consistent approaches to language, task design and questioning so that children's default mode is to reason mathematically. This session can be accessed here. It is free, although a voluntary payment can be made for the session.

Using Numberless Prompts to Deconstruct Word Questions, Y2 & Y3

This session explores how to build an understanding of the deep structure of word questions. We see how to focus thinking on key parts of a question, break questions into small steps and how to help all children experience success in deconstructing word questions. Then we consider how, by using related tasks and open-ended questions, challenge can be added.  This will enable all children to experience success and to be challenged when working with worded questions.

Using Numberless Prompts to Deconstruct Word Questions, Y4 to Y6

This session explores how to help children understand the deep structure of multi-step word questions. We see how to focus thinking on key points, break questions into steps and help children to think deeply before calculating answers. We will then look at the use of variation to help children to make connections between different questions in the same context or similar questions that are framed in different contexts.

Sequences of Challenges to Build Mathematical Problem-Solvers, KS2

This session explores how to develop children as problem-solvers. We see how, by building the necessary pre-skills, all children can have more success in problem-solving. We consider the use of representations and scaffolds to give extra support and we consider how to open up deep challenges. Lots of examples of 'task families' from I See Problem-Solving are shared along with examples of children's work.

Training About Using the I See Reasoning eBooks in KS2:

These sessions, which are approximately 60 minutes long, are recordings of training sessions looking at using the I See Reasoning eBooks:

Using I See Reasoning - Y3 & Y4 to Deepen Mathematical Reasoning

In this recording of an online training session, we look at how the I See Reasoning eBooks for Y3 and Y4 can be used in the classroom. We look at how certain tasks can be brought to life practically and how visual representations can be used to build understanding. Then we consider the use of misconceptions, sequences of questions and open-ended tasks to deepen and extend the challenge.

Using I See Reasoning - Y5 & Y6 to Deepen Mathematical Reasoning

In this recording of an online training session, we look at how the I See Reasoning eBooks for Y5 and Y6 can be used. We look at how visual representations, misconceptions and part-complete example tasks can build understanding. We have an extended look at how to draw out the patterns and relationships within sequences of 'Small Difference Questions'. Then we look at tasks that deepen the challenge!

Training About Early Number Sense and Early Calculation Skills:

These sessions, which are approximately 80 minutes long, are recordings of training sessions looking at the development of early maths skills.

Early Number Sense, EYFS - Y1

In this recording of an online training session, we explore how by developing secure and flexible counting and subitizing skills, children build a strong understanding of number. We see how reasoning can be build within children's earliest mathematical experiences. The Number Foundations Assessment is shared for tracking progress and we see how the free resources from I See Maths can be used to build these foundational maths skills.

Fluency in Addition and Subtraction, Y1-Y3

In this recording of an online training session, we consider how children become fluent in mental addition and subtraction calculation within 20. A big focus is placed on developing efficient calculation strategies. We see how practical games and visual representations can be used to develop fluent mental recall within 10. Then, we consider how this knowledge can be used to help children to calculate within 20.
