This folder accompanies the Primary CAME professional development programme. The two-year programme is based on extensive research into how to promote the development of children's mathematical thinking skills. It explores not just what to teach Year 5 and 6 children but how and why.
How do teachers identify the potential for greater depth writing and encourage children to meet their full potential? This book was created by people who are not only passionate about primary education, but who are also leading experts in their own particular areas. They have made use of their wide experience to offer practical guidance on greater depth writing, while underpinning this with theoretical understanding. We hope that reading this book helps you to reflect on what greater depth writing looks like and how you can encourage children to write at greater depth. You will find many suggestions for teaching lessons that encourage children to write at greater depth underpinned by theory.
The curriculum is the soul of the educational process, the heart of educational institution and the mind of the academic programme. It is the tool in the hands of the teachers to mould his students according to the goals of the education, and aims and objectives of the course. Any course cannot be conducted without a prescribed curriculum. More particularly, a definite as well as flexible curriculum at elementary level is needed as it is a combination of various subjects, skills, abilities, aptitudes and understanding. The present book on elementary curriculum is intended to guide preservice and inservice teachers to teach effectively, to provide insights to the curriculum designers to develop a suitable curriculum, to the writers to suggest suitable learning experiences, and to the parents to cooperate to realise the potentialities of their children. This book is touching all the important issues of curriculum, curriculum development, language arts, social studies, science, mathematics, assessment and evaluation.
This book is for teachers who are looking for interesting and practical ways to incorporate ICT into their daily lesson plans. It shows how ICT can be used as a tool for mathematics, but more importantly how its proper use can enhance the mathematics being taught. The authors cover all current aspects of ICT and mathematics, including: databases spreadsheets logo and the use of floor turtles and control technology handling of resources including interactive whiteboards management of ICT within the classroom how ICT can be used to present mathematical topics and links to other areas of the curriculum. With plenty of suggestions on how to use the software and hardware described in the book, this is a useful resource for all primary teachers, particularly subject co-ordinators for ICT and mathematics. It will also be of interest to students on PGCE and Initial Teacher Training courses.
This book explores how mathematical mastery, influenced by East Asian teaching approaches, can be developed in a UK context to enhance teaching and to deepen children's mathematical knowledge. It gives guidance on using physical resources to demonstrate key concepts, extended examples on how to teach different curriculum topics and how to plan for small-step progression. Key coverage includes: - Key terminology in mastery-style teaching - The challenges in implementing a mastery approach - The use of manipulative resources for deeper understanding - An analysis of mastery and related schemes of work currently available - Assessing mastery - How to apply mastery concepts in the early years

The guide is an essential resource for trainee teachers working towards the Teachers’ Standards for qualified teacher status (QTS). It also helps newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and more experienced teachers have an 'understanding of, and always act within, the statutory frameworks which set out their professional duties and responsibilities' Teachers' Standards. Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs) and Teaching Assistants (TAs) working towards HLTA status will find the guide invaluable in developing knowledge of how 'other frameworks that support the development and well-being of children and young people impact upon their practice' HTLA Professional Standards.
A complete guide for trainees and teachers To prepare to teach the new Primary National Curriculum, you need more than just the Programmes of Study. You need a resource to help you understand, plan for, teach and assess the curriculum. This is it! Your guide to planning the Primary National Curriculum. This book explores how to plan in primary schools. It covers curriculum design and structure, challenges to learning, and how children learn. New in this edition is a piece on Decolonising the Curriculum. For each curriculum subject the programme of study is included, with notes to help you interpret it for your own class. The text covers how the teaching of each subject can be organised, assessment opportunities, key and essential resources in each subject, and how ICT can best be used in each subject to enhance teaching. Sequenced lesson examples in all subject chapters link theory to practice and highlight progression. The final section of the book explores the many ways in which the curriculum can be delivered. It includes the creative curriculum, dialogic teaching, cross-curricular learning and more current thinking about interpreting the curriculum.
The Really Useful Maths Book is for all those who want children to enjoy the challenge of learning mathematics. With suggestions about the best ways to use resources and equipment to support learning, it describes in detail how to make learning the easy option for children.An easy-to-follow, comprehensive guide packed with ideas and activities, it is the perfect tool to help teachers who wish to develop their teaching strategies. The second edition has been fully updated in light of the latest research, as well as in response to the new mathematics curriculum. It includes many more practical activities for each mathematical topic and explores exciting new areas. Key topics covered include: Numbers and the number system Operations and calculations Shape and space Measures, statistics and data handling Cross-curricular approaches Resources and planning for teaching and learning Contexts for making sense of mathematics Bridges, strategies and personal qualities Dialogue and interactive teaching International perspectives on teaching and learning Psychology and neuroscience to maximize learning. The Really Useful Maths Book makes mathematics meaningful, challenging and interesting. It will be invaluable to practicing primary teachers, subject specialists, maths co-ordinators, student teachers, mentors, tutors, home educators and others interested in mathematics education programmes.

Did you know that a circle has more than one side? Are you aware of the difference between 1:2 and 1⁄2? Could you spot when a 2D shape is actually 3D? Tackling Misconceptions in Primary Mathematics is a practical guide based on the principles that sound subject knowledge is key to fostering understanding, and addressing misconceptions is central to pupil progress. With an emphasis on preventing as well as unpicking misconceptions in the classroom, it offers trainee and practising teachers clear explanations, practical strategies, and examples of the classroom language and dialogue that will help pupils successfully navigate tricky topics. The book demonstrates the importance of preventing misconceptions through what is said, done and presented to children, giving a variety of examples of common misconceptions and exploring how they can be addressed in a classroom environment. Proper intervention at the point of misconception is regarded as a key skill for any outstanding classroom practitioner and the author stresses the value in understanding how the pupil got there and explaining that it’s okay to make mistakes. Misconceptions are only one step away from correctly formed concepts if harnessed with care and skill. This comprehensive text is designed to be read as either a short course introduction, or dipped into as a guide to assist teaching. It is essential reading for trainee primary school teachers on all routes to QTS, as well as mathematics subject leaders and practising teachers looking to inspire the next generation of confident and inquisitive mathematicians.
