24 April – 28 April 2017
Feeling refreshed after the Easter break, the team at WRMH HQ were ready to get stuck into work – using some great teamwork skills to plan our new schemes of learning, and also delivering lots of sessions.
The maths hub team spent some time over Monday and Tuesday doing some exciting planning for our Sep 2017 schemes of learning. Here are some great photos of the team collaborating and sharing ideas:
Primary school staff from across the country were also invited to have an input, to ensure the resources meet their teaching needs. The popular schemes are part of the WRMH primary curriculum plan, which supports ‘Teaching for Mastery’. To register for these free resources, click here. Keep an eye out for our new schemes of learning coming soon!
While the rest of the team continued their work on the maths hub free resources, Paul was out delivering a Calculating with Fractions CPD session at a school in Lancashire. Our CPD training sessions are great for developing a deeper understanding of concepts and learning how to implement these effectively in the classroom.

Kelsey was out leading two sessions today – a CPA (Concrete Pictorial Abstract) course in the morning and a Year 3 model lesson in the afternoon. The staff loved seeing how their Year 3 maths lessons can be delivered in a fun and engaging way. Meanwhile, Stephanie and Stephen had an exciting meeting to discuss details for an upcoming event at Yorkshire Sculpture Park – look out for further updates on this.
Paul has been busy this week working on our fully funded TSST (subject specialism) block of training, which will be taking place on these four newly added dates: 21st June 2017, 28th June 2017, 4th July 2017, and 7th July 2017. It’s the last chance to sign up for these TSST packages – so if interested, make sure you book in time. To find out more, please click here.
Corinne delivered a half day course on Angles today, training delegates on how they can teach this topic in a meaningful way that will help students understand the concepts. Jennifer and Stephen ran a bar modelling twilight in the afternoon – the delegates particularly enjoyed the examples of how they can use Bar Modelling in the classroom; they can’t wait to get back to their classes and try it out!

Jennie is delighted this week, as after a long process of shortlisting candidates, she has managed to recruit a great replacement during her maternity cover… only a month to go now…. She has been taking time to introduce the new member to the maths hub team – watch out for her introduction in our weekly diary!
In other news…..remember Tino the horse? Poor Caroline was involved in a freak accident over the weekend with Tino that resulted in a broken wrist! She has had to cancel all her meetings this week but we wish her a speedy recovery and hope to see her back in the office soon.
