  • Catherine will lead you to discover the rich learning in Firm Foundations and Securing Foundations. These important mathematical concepts are as essential to solid maths growth as building foundations are essential to a solid building. What does it look like when students are showing understanding of these foundational concepts?

  • Children’s learning is an ongoing and complicated process; likewise assessing their understanding and moving them on in their learning is ongoing and formative. You can only gather your ideas about what children understand from what you see them doing and saying as they work and interact in their setting. In this session we will explore how the Numicon Approach assesses children and the connections to the NZ Curriculum.

  • Numicon shapes are brilliant for making maths really obvious at every level of learning. Teaching and assessment is enriched by these clever tools based on decades of research. They give you insight into children’s thinking and reasoning, promote deep mathematical conversations, enable problem-solving individually but more so in groups. You will all enjoy the exploration and use of patterns and relationships in going deeper with mathematics. These are practical workshops, so you might want to bring your shapes, baseboards and pegs/counters with you. Series dates are the 29th August, 6th September, 14th September and 19th September 2022, all at 3:30-4:30 pm.

  • Rich tasks are built into the Numicon programme from Day 1 and continue throughout the years. You may know of Numicon only as a resource for children with learning difficulties, but it was originally written as a class/school approach with inclusion as a key feature. This session will bring rich tasks that you can use next week in your classes, directly from the Teaching Handbooks. During this hour we will focus on all the strands from Numicon 3 -5. Numicon 3 = end of NZC 2. Numicon 4 = beginning NZC 3. (End of NP stage 5 - beginning 6).
