DateThu, 7th February, 2019
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationSt William’s Primary School, William’s Loke, Norwich
This course will explore ways to enrich the experiences of our ‘rapid graspers’/higher attaining pupils through deepening their understanding of mathematical structures and building up their resilience through engaging in complex tasks.
During this course participants will:
• consider practical and engaging ways of keeping the whole class together whilst ensuring that children who complete work set quickly can be extended
• reflect upon pedagogies that will enable children to develop their mathematical understanding
• explore activities that encourage children to demonstrate depth in different areas of the curriculum
