On 16th March 2017 we will be hosting our first CPD accredited event. Focusing on mental maths and fractions, the FREE Maths for KS2 training will consist of two 45 minute sessions presented by industry experts.
The sessions will be hands-on experiences, providing plenty of ideas on how to deliver fun and engaging Maths lessons that align with the KS2 curriculum. Along with the sessions, you’ll also be given access to plenty of handouts and downloadable resources to ensure you can make the most of what you have learnt.
Session 1 will be ran by Amy Sinclair (Primary Maths Specialist) and will focus on Mental Maths Games and Puzzles. The session will explore quick and easy activities which can be adapted for a range of learning stages and topics all designed to promote discussion and strategic thinking around mental maths.
After a refreshment break, Karen Levet (B.Ed Mathematics and Education) will deliver session 2, Practical approaches to fractions at KS2. This session is a hands-on experience, providing you with ideas, discussions, resources and equipment to teach fraction topics from the KS2 curriculum in a practical and fun way.
