    Problem Solving – U&A

• Activity to encourage team work
  and sharing ideas!
• Jigsaw problems
• Logic problems
• All possibilities
• Finding rules and describing
  patterns

      Giving Children and Young People the Best Start in Life
                Jigsaw - logic

• What is the question?
• What is the important information?
• What is the irrelevant information?

• What skills are the children using?
• What skills do the children need before
  they start? (previous learning)
• How would you organise this activity?

    Help! I’m a Year 6 teacher get
            me out of here!
•   Yearly overview for Year 6
•   Pitch and expectation
•   Unit overviews for each Block
•   Links to APP (callout boxes) in
    each unit

    How do we impact on
standards throughout Year 6?
                Use pupil tracking to:-
• provide a picture of pupils’ progress at whole-school and
                          at class level;
  • provide a focus for professional dialogue to support
       Assessment for Learning (AfL) and personalised
                             learning;
• enable targeted mapping of intervention to support pupil
    learning, identifying the progress of individual children
      who are slow-moving, stuck or in need of support to
   accelerate progress, achieving or exceeding age-related
                               expectations;


          Giving Children and Young People the Best Start in Life
     Does your tracking information tell
                   you:-

•   Who is on track to achieve a level 4?

•   Who is on track to achieve a level 5?

•   What each child achieved at the end of KS1 to ensure value
    added progress is good?

•   Who is on track to achieve 2 levels or more of progress since
    KS1?

•   Who is on track to achieve L4 in both maths and english?
    Combined attainment – (more this afternoon)

•   Who needs to make accelerated progress to achieve
    expected/age related outcomes? (slow movers/stuck)

          Playing detective!

   Year 5 SAT question level analysis

  • What are the mental maths scores?
     • What are the weakest areas?
 • Evidence of accurate pencil and paper
                procedures?
          • Use of calculators?
• Jottings to support mental calculations?
     • APP judgements passed on?

      Getting to grips with
           calculation
• Calculation Audit
• Progression in the 4 calculations –
  are you confident in what the next
  steps are?
• Are you using the schools
  calculation policy?

  How can I support children who need to make
    accelerated progress to achieve Level 4?
Mathematics
Year 6
Springboard materials

Year 6 Booster lessons

Wave 3 material – supporting children with gaps in their
learning (Y6)

Overcoming barriers – Moving level 3 to level 4
                    - Securing Level 4
                    - Moving level 4 to level 5 due out
                            January 10th
                    - Securing Level 5 - November

Problem Solving – All Possibilities, logic, finding rules and
describing patterns
      Overcoming Barriers

• Moving from Level 3 to 4
• Securing Level 4
• Moving level 4 to level 5 due out
  in January
• Securing Level 5 due out November
• Front page of securing document –
  motto
• Review and assess – teach – practise-
  apply – review and assess

  accelerated progress to achieve Level 5?

 Using and Applying

 • Mathematical Challenges booklet
 • NRICH – overview matching problem solving
   activities to each objective from the RF
 • Check their pencil and paper methods for four
   operations are accurate and secure
 • Fractions, Decimals and %
 • Maximise x-curricular links

      Conditions for learning

       How are you developing the
      environment for learning through
                  the use of:-
•   working walls
•   steps to success
•   learning prompts
•    interactive displays

        Giving Children and Young People the Best Start in Life
                     Resources

•   Suggested action timeline
•   Leaflet for parents
•   Easter CD
•   Mathematical activities for Year 6
•   Pitch and expectation
•   Nrich links
•   Learning clips
        Giving Children and Young People the Best Start in Life
  What makes the difference?

• 4 calculations – a secure method
• Mental arithmetic – regular timed
  activities
• Use of jottings – children confident
• Models and images – around the room,
  maths resource area
• Math talk – explain thinking – how do
  you know?, tell the person next to you…
• Use and Apply – make the learning as
  relevant as possible – FUN!!!
