Singapore Maths Network Workshops
The Alliance for Learning in conjunction with NW1 Maths Hub will be offering 4 half day workshops to support the continuing implementation and development of Singapore Maths.
Each of the workshops will have focus areas and will address the topical issues associated with Singapore Maths. The workshops will be highly collaborative and will give practitioners an opportunity to share best practice and examples of successful teaching in their schools.
There will also be an opportunity for attendees to contribute to the agenda and focus areas of subsequent workshops.
The workshops would be best suited for maths leads or members of the leadership team as, as well as looking at best classroom practice, topics will covr the strategic implementation and development of Singapore Maths.
Based on the feedback from the 2016-2017 Singapore Network Group, four key areas were prioritised: SEN Differentiation, Assessment, EYFS/KS1 Specific Session, KS2 Specific Session. These will be the four key areas of development for the Singapore Network throughout 2017 – 2018. Other topics such as change management and formal moderation (Local Authority and Ofsted) and showing clear progress through case studies will also be covered in the workshops.

Workshop 1 – SEN & Differentiation
This workshop will focus on how a Singaporean approach to maths can support those children who have a Learning Difficulty or who find maths extremely challenging. We will look at how the Concrete -Pictorial – Abstract approach is not one directional and how the transition between the stages can support learning. In addition to this we will also be looking at how differentiation is achieved through a single task and will question what we should do for those children who fall out of the scope of a single task; both struggling learners and our advanced learners.
As with all workshops, they will be greatly enhanced if you can bring examples of approaches, materials or teaching strategies relating to SEN or differentiation, ready to share with your colleagues.
