New to KS1: exploring key ideas in mathematics
This day will explore key mathematics and pedagogical ideas for KS1, underpinned by the aims of the national curriculum and the five big ideas of teaching for mastery. In particular it will focus on supporting children to reason about their mathematics: notice things, use what they know, make connections and make decisions. Reasoning is at the heart of mathematics and developing reasoning is about developing mathematical thinkers. It is one of the aims of the national curriculum, underpins a teaching for mastery approach and is increasingly the focus of tests and exams.
