  • Monday 6 April

  • Using unstructured (counters) and structured maths equipment such as Numicon shapes, Cuisenaire rods and pattern blocks makes fractions so easy to understand. Linking fractions with Geometry makes for some fun and connected learning in years 1-3. Join Belinda's session that follows for older students. Presented by Jan Ward-Allen.

    Time: 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM Book Event
  • This course will cover: 1.What Numicon is and why it's so successful. 2. What are Cuisenaire rods and how to use them. 3. Using the Rods to teach Multiplication and Division. 4. Word problems made easy. Have either your own set of Cuisenaire rods ready to use, or make some cardboard ones. Each rod is 1 centimetre longer. The '10' rod is 10 centimetres. This is a practical course presented by Jo Loveridge

  • We will be exploring how teaching fractions at these levels becomes easy by using Numicon shapes, Cuisenaire rods and bar modelling. We will look at the foundational understanding of fractional numbers and how they fit in our number system and use equipment to model calculations and solve problems. We will explore the learning progressions and assessment. Join Jan's earlier course for younger children. Presented by Belinda Walker

  • Tuesday 7 April

  • You've got the books but don't know how to use them or want a quick refresher to help with planning? Or you are planning to buy the books and use them well. The Implementation Guide shows you how to set up your classroom and get going. The Teaching Handbooks show you how to create a rich full year maths programme together covering ALL the strands for everyone in your class. ALL the planning is done for you! Presented by Margi Leech

    Time: 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM Book Event
  • In this session we will take a deeper look at what assessment is and explore what formative and summative assessment looks like and how this is important when making OTJs. You will see how Numicon milestone assessments fit with the NZC and gain practical tips as to how this can be managed in your classroom or in fact during ‘lock down’. We will also discuss differentiating your teaching using Numicon, and theories of mixed ability and flexible grouping.
