16 May – 20 May
A week of new role celebrations, the launch of a special conference at an unbelievable price and a voice saving mission…
Monday: The team were devastated to hear that Caroline had secured a new job. A worried team anxiously waited for Caroline to reveal her new role, but were quickly delighted and relieved in equal measure to find out that she has been appointed as the hub’s Maths Consultant. More details to follow about how Caroline can support your school. Congratulations Caroline!
Tuesday: Emily (who supports Hayley with the hub’s marketing) had a very busy day making the final arrangements for the Maths: everyone can conference. After a few technical glitches and nail biting moments she finally launched the event website. Bookings are coming through in high volumes and we are all thrilled to see places rapidly filling up. To find out more about the conference and secure your all-important place, visit www.trinitytsa.co.uk/maths-hub/mathseveryonecan. Tickets cost just £85 and give you access to powerful speeches from Dan Haesler, Dr Barry Hymer and Professor Marcus du Sautoy. We look forward to seeing you there!
Wednesday: This week Beth has tried every remedy on the market in the quest to save her voice for her Mastery training sessions. Whilst she claims Lemsip hasn’t worked, she powered through the final twilight session which involved teachers from Rawson Primary School working together to plan effective lessons with varied questions. The session ended on a positive note with the teachers reporting to have lots of new ideas to take back to their school. We hope you find the magical remedy soon Beth as we need your voice back for next week’s courses!
Thursday: Jennie received a very special delivery today. The Maths: everyone can conference brochure returned from print. We will be handing these out to members of our network, but if you would like a copy of your own, please feel free to download one from www.trinitytsa.co.uk/maths-hub/mathseveryonecan.
Friday: Paul (who as well as leading our training sessions teaches Secondary maths) has had an intense week preparing his Year 11 students for their final GCSE examinations which take place next week. He would like to wish students the best of luck and reminds them: “Smart isn’t about being clever, it’s about making the best decisions. So decide to do some revision this weekend!” Our daily GCSE problems are a great revision tool and can be accessed by following @WRMathsHub. Ensure you tweet your student solutions for the chance to win a prize.
Good luck to all involved in GCSE Mathematics exams next week. Remember – you can do it!
