Use of Manipulatives

Having previously been run in 2018/19 this Work Group will now be on offer again this year 2019/20

Are you looking to develop your maths mastery practice in a safe, collaborative, professional environment? This work group will focus on the use of manipulatives and representations to ensure pupils understand mathematical concepts before leaping to the abstract. Exploration, gathering and modeling of ideas will be investigated to uncover the structure of number. A strong focus linking pedagogy and subject knowledge across the primary curriculum will ensure all participants have practical ideas to try out in their classrooms throughout the year.
