Code: OPL/20/080 Primary Mathematics: Subject Leader Update

This is a termly opportunity for Mathematics Subject Leaders to update their knowledge of the hot topics in mathematics in the primary phase. Priorities for the term ahead will be shared and delegates will have time to reflect on the mathematics provision in their own school and identify how this could be improved. Each session will also contain a ‘spotlight’ on a particular area of mathematics which could be delivered as a staff meeting back in school. The sessions also provide the opportunity to network with other subject leaders and exchange ideas and suggestions about the learning and teaching of maths in the primary phase. At present the session will be delivered remotely using Microsoft Teams. A link to the meeting will be sent out in advance .

Code: OPL/20/084 Primary Mathematics: Mastering Multiplication by the End of Year 4

Book now course closing soon

A webinar to explore how to effectively support children to know and understand their multiplication tables. Following the pilot of the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC), there was due to be a full roll out with all Year 4 pupils undertaking the check in June 2020. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the DfE have stated on their website that the 2020 assessments will not take place. However, there is every intention that the MTC will be undertaken in June 2021. Effective learning and teaching of multiplication facts, therefore, remains a priority for national assessment. As teachers, however, we understand that knowledge of multiplication tables goes beyond the need to pass a test, but that it forms a fundamental building block for success with mathematics. This webinar will support teachers and mathematics subject leaders to review their current provision for teaching times tables by the end of year 4. We will share systems, strategies and practical resources to support the learning of these number facts in preparation for the national, statutory test The session will be delivered remotely using Microsoft Teams. A link to the meeting will be sent out in advance.

Code: OPL/20/097 English Planning Tools for Pupils with SEND

This virtual course will introduce teachers to the Planning Tool for pupils with SEND which has been developed by Hampshire Inspector Advisory Service (HIAS) to aid teachers in meeting the learning needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) whose current attainment is well below that of their peers, in some or all aspects of the curriculum. The planning tool supports teachers to identify an appropriate starting point and plan aspirational expectations of progress over time. It is intended that the tool is used to create suitably personalised learning for individual pupils with the expectation this is integrated into whole class teaching by removing barriers and enabling participation in whole class learning.

This course will support teachers and subjects in supporting children to make rapid progress from clearly defined starting points across the primary range. We will explore what makes an effective reader and the strategies children use to both decode and understand texts. We will then examine key areas to notice in reading and the diagnostic approaches which can be used to inform responsive planning, as well as practical classroom approaches to facilitate progress on the back of this ongoing assessment.

Code: OPL/20/098 Knowing the Standards in Years 3 and 4

While there is a huge amount of information and exemplification of the standards for the end of KS1 and KS2, there is far less guidance available for teachers of those crucial years in lower KS2 – and these are crucial years where really substantial learning takes place, underpinning all the achievements of upper KS2. Where schools get Years 3 and 4 right, the likelihood of improved outcomes in Year 6 is significantly increased. This 4-session course, running across the academic year 2020-21, aims to give teachers clarity about expectations and progression in Years 3 and 4 through a series of virtual CPD sessions delivered through Microsoft Teams.
