The following Primary Maths courses are running next term:
PROBLEM SOLVING AND REASONING
Problem solving, reasoning justification and proof are at the heart of becoming a mathematician,
and at the heart of the new national curriculum. This practical course focuses on problem solving
activities that engage children in meaningful mathematical learning, including reflection on the
possibilities for development in each.
Delegates will consider the contexts in which we use ‘problem solving’ in the classroom, both for
using skills already learned, and for learning new skills.
This course will:
 identify and use problem solving a range of learning contexts
 consider strategies that help develop creative and confident and excited mathematicians
 experience mathematical problems, and strategies to tackle them, that offer opportunities for
creative thinking
 explore a variety of ways of using simple resources to support mathematical understanding
 develop activities which support children’s confidence and competence in tacking word
problems.
Dates: Friday 29 January, 9am to 4pm, Lilla Huset Centre in Hammersmith.
Course Leader: Janine Blinko
Course Charges: No charge for SLA Schools, charges apply for non-SLA schools
PROGRESSION IN CALCULATION (two day course)
Many children appear muddled and try to use a range of part-learned, part-understood methods for
calculation. This practical course focuses on the development of understanding in written and
mental calculation- in other words, mastery! Delegates will identify a clear pathway for empowering
children as they become confident in calculation, and engage in strategies that enable children to
understand the methods they are becoming proficient in.
This course will:
 consider the development in children’s understanding of calculating
 focus on progression in children’s developing skills, understanding and reasoning in calculation
 reflect on the relationship between the four operations
 identify pre-requisite skills children need in preparation for written methods of calculation
 quantify the advantages and disadvantages of a range of models and images for calculation
Dates: 25 & 26 February, 9am to 4pm, Lilla Huset Centre in Hammersmith.
Course Leader: Janine Blinko
Course Charges: No charge for SLA Schools, charges apply for non-SLA schools
