It provides opportunities for new primary English subject leaders or those returning to the role to engage in professional dialogue, exploring strategies for effective leadership including practical solutions to some of the challenges presented.

Maths Masterclass with Professor Mike Askew Monday 24th September 2018 | Mercure Southgate Hotel, Exeter | 9:15 12:30 £79+VAT ONLY
Overview Reasoning is at the heart of learning and doing mathematics. But evidence points out that reasoning does not get as much attention in mathematics lessons as it should. It that because fluency and problem solving need to come first, or because reasoning is only something that a select few children can engage in? In this masterclass, Mike will explore why it is important that all children get to engage in mathematical reasoning and why reasoning is complementary to, but not directly dependent upon, fluency and problem solving.
Key Reasons to Attend
Gain insight into how the reasoning aim of the national curriculum relates to the other aims of fluency and problem solving
Broaden understanding of what reasoning looks like in the curriculum
Examine how all pupils can engage in mathematical reasoning, not simply those mastering the content more quickly
