SaleTeacher CPD: Working Towards Outstanding Teaching

Teacher CPD: Working Towards Outstanding Teaching

This inspirational CPD session is designed for relatively small numbers of teaching staff (between 4-16) where focused discussion allows time for staff to reflect on their own practice, and consider strategies that may drive their own practice from good to outstanding. This CPD package can be delivered in one or two hour-long sessions depending on the level of discussion that is initiated. This package works well as a discrete session or as an introductory session to further CPD sessions developing best practice. I have included a presentation, activity resources and further written information which includes the rationale behind each slide and activity including any discussion points that may enhance your delivery of the session. Session objectives: • Consider the qualities of an outstanding teacher and discuss what creates the spark in an amazing lesson.• Familiarise yourself with what Ofsted considers to be outstanding teaching and learning.• Discuss how your own school judges data and the achievement and attainment of students.• Discuss what outstanding practice of various teaching and learning strategies looks like.• Prioritise which strategies will have the biggest impact in your classroom.

Included are 30 lessons that cover:Place ValueRoundingNegative NumbersRoman NumeralsPowers of 10 Inverse operationsWritten addition and subtractionMental addition and subtractionWorksheets are differentiated three ways with a mastery aim running throughout. Having used a similar format in my own lessons, these sheets often provide enough challenge for two days lessons, with children taking on the easier work then moving on to harder challenges within the other sheets. These have all been made with mastery in mind and so follow this pattern. Worksheet One - Works on practise and fluency (LA) Worksheet Two - Practise, fluency and reasoning (MA) Worksheet Three - Practise, fluency, reasoning and problem solving (HA) Worksheet Four - Same as worksheet three as a spare for anybody who finishes problem solving Answers are included for each sheet.
