We look forward to announcing details of our 2021-22 PA Maths Conference in the coming year, which will take place in Spring or Summer term.
In the meantime please see some details of our most recent conference in May 2021:
Our 2021 conference, which was held online, explored the idea of multiplicative reasoning, which is a core feature of many mathematical problems children will face. We feel it is very important as many situations encountered in life, work and education are connected by the idea of proportionality, as are a number of areas of the upper KS2 maths curriculum and questions in the KS2 SATs papers. Making connections, deepening understanding and multiplicative reasoning are all features of the primary maths national curriculum. Our day covered content relevant from EYFS through to KS2.
We were delighted to welcome guest speakers Bobby Seagull and Leanne Lowe, who both delivered keynote speeches and hands-on workshops, alongside our own PA Maths leaders.
Bobby Seagull is a school maths teacher and Cambridge University doctorate student researching maths anxiety. He rose to prominence through his appearances as captain of Emmanuel College Cambridge on BBC quiz show University Challenge. He has since won Celebrity Mastermind. He is a regular contributor to BBC Radio Four’s Puzzle of the Day, an ambassador for charity National Numeracy, the UK Libraries Champion and a Financial Times columnist.
Leanne Lowe is London North East Maths Hub Strategic Link and Maths Hub Co-lead, working with schools and maths leaders across our region and with the NCETM. She has a wealth of maths knowledge and experience developing primary school teachers to deliver high-quality effective maths lessons and improve outcomes for children.
Our maths conferences are aimed at primary school maths leads, senior leaders and teachers.
Our 2020 conference, focused on making connections and featured guest speaker Gareth Metcalf.
“A great day with loads of ideas to take back to school -I definitely need to think more carefully about the problems that I set children and need to consider what is the maths that children are going to need in order to be able to solve it”
“Excellent CPD. Thoughtful and practical.”
“Thank you – it was a really enjoyable day that got me thinking more deeply about mathematical concepts”
