Mathematical Reasoning across Key Stage 2

This is a fully funded training opportunity for Teachers presently working at Key Stage 2 within primary schools in Northumberland, Tyne, Wear and County Durham.

The programme aims to deepen participants understanding of algebraic reasoning and its development across Key Stage 2, and appreciate how this builds on understanding from Key Stage 1, and supports transition to move to formal algebra in Key Stage 3. Key aspects for exploration in classrooms will be explored e.g. pattern and sequences, equivalence, mathematical reasoning and concrete or pictorial representations.

To maximise the  impact of the training, we would like schools to send two delegates to the programme, one from Upper Key Stage 2 and one from Lower Key Stage 2, however this is not essential.  You will be asked to complete a pre and post programme evaluation as well as a gap task between sessions.

The programme will be delivered by Pauline Braviner, Mathematics Consultant, and NCETM accredited professional development lead.  The programme will be delivered over 3 sessions in two locations:

Northumberland – 6 March, 25 April and 23 May 2017.  All dates 9am – 12 Noon

South Tyneside – 30 January, 8 March and 26 April 2017.  All dates 1pm – 4pm
