This half-day course explores how we can develop deep and sustained understanding in Year 6 and support children in achieving success in end of KS2 assessments.
To consider what constitutes working at greater depth looks like in:
We will look at how lessons can be designed to encourage children to make connections between key mathematical concepts (e.g. fractions, ratio and proportion) and to think about the most elegant way to solve a problem.
There will be the opportunity to consider the role of questioning and also to look at questions on the end of KS2 test papers and what it means to solve them with ‘greater depth’.
We will consider the way we want to develop mathematical thinking and support children to make links between key areas of the curriculum so that they can work flexibly, applying strategies based on connected mathematical concepts.
