I gained a lot from this sharing of ideas and teaching methods but sadly it was a one-off because time is always so precious.

The experience has been amazing. It is fascinating seeing the progression from KS2 to KS3 especially at this time where Mastery is all the rage. <br />Have you heard of Number Talks? I heard of it through reading Jo Boaler's 'Elephant in the room'.

My 8yo is currently learning fractions using arrays and my 4yo is learning how to construct number sentences.

When working with low achievers in Year 5 last year, many of them became more confident with mental multiplication for questions like 17 x 6 because they could draw and partition a model to 10 x 6 and 7 x 6, and maestroprimariohttps://maestroprimario.wordpress.com/noreply@blogger.com
