I am a freelance mathematics consultant for EYFS and Primary. I have been trading in my current role since 2011. Before that I worked for the National Strategies for five years after having taught in the classroom for twenty-one years. I have a wealth of experience to share and I am always on the lookout for new and effective ways of making maths accessible and engaging for pupils and teachers.

Exchange Game

(0)
This document describes how to play the Exchange game. It is aimed at Year 2 and Year 3 but can be used with any children who are struggling to understand how to exchange ten ones for one ten when using a formal method for addition or are finding the reverse tricky when trying to understand decomposition for subtraction. The children are taught the game in a maths lesson and then would play it every day for a few days (perhaps as a warm-up to subsequent maths lessons or as a settling in task after lunch or as morning work).

Tortoise Questions Year 1

(0)
Here are mathematical questions for Year 1 that involve and promote reasoning, problem solving and discussion. They are ‘slow maths’ questions designed to be used for teacher assessment and to support the observation of mathematical thinking skills. They show links to the statements in the English National Curriculum for mathematics and can be used to assess what children know and can do in mathematics.

Long-Term Acquired Learning

Long-Term Acquired Learning

(0)
There are some elements of maths which are best learned by distributed practice, referring to it at regular intervals over time. Acquiring mathematical language is one of those elements. Regular experience of measurement is another. Developing mathematical habits to promote thinking like a mathematician is a third. This document lists examples of these three elements for Primary Schools. Remember, maths is something that shouldn’t just be experienced or learned in mathematics lessons!

Mathematical language is crucial to children’s development of thinking. Teachers and teaching assistants need to ensure that their own knowledge of vocabulary and technical language is appropriate for the age they are teaching. Children need to have experience of hearing mathematical words being used regularly and ‘naturally’ by the adults they learn with as it is the first crucial step to being able to use new language. It is recommended that all adult practitioners are given a copy of the vocabulary lists to be able to refer to them when planning and delivering lessons as well as to hone unplanned talk and interactions with children. This list is an indication of the year group content for vocabulary in year 2. (There are companion vocabulary lists for all other year groups.)
