PA Maths – How to… Workshops EYFS & Years 1-6, 2021-22
We have designed the PA Maths “How to… ” sessions to be comprehensive in meeting the needs of schools, through dialogue with our PA Maths members, via training feedback and in-school visits. These sessions are designed by maths specialists to focus on a specific area of maths teaching, to really unpick the intricacy of teaching that skill and how best to facilitate learning. We look at a range of practical strategies that can be easily translated into classroom practice, aiming to answer the questions we are asked most commonly.
Training for 2021-22 will continue to run remotely from 2-3.30pm on the dates below. Materials and tasks may be sent to participants in advance and training materials will be provided after the session.
