Join us for a jam-packed Saturday brunch, including a range of opt in workshops, amazing guest speakers, tips for securing real progress and bonus pre-recorded content!
We’re so excited to bring you our first virtual secondary gathering!
Our Secondary Maths Brunch will run from 10am – 2.30pm on Saturday 30th January, featuring fun, bitesize, engaging sessions.
During the day, you’ll have the opportunity to explore in depth the mastery approach to teaching mathematics. Workshops will demonstrate how the principles of mastery promote the necessary thinking skills to gain a deep conceptual understanding of some ‘big’ mathematical ideas. Practical ideas will be modelled, allowing you to transfer these immediately into your own classrooms.
In addition, you will also be able to find out more about White Rose Maths free secondary schemes of learning, the rationale behind these and how to use them effectively when lesson planning. We will also consider how we can extend our higher attainers, whilst also supporting our lower attainers.
- A range of opt-in workshops covering themes such as differentiation, blended learning and using manipulatives.
- Fantastic guest line-up. Our speakers have a phenomenal amount of experience between them and share everything they do with infectious enthusiasm.
- Classroom Inspirations: Mark Dawes, Ben Gordon, Paul Rowlandson and Nicola Whiston talk to Craig Barton about top tips for securing real progress in the classroom. What can you take-away and use in your own classroom?
- Bonus workshops from our event sponsors.
- Complimentary video on how to use our free schemes of learning.
- Virtual goody bag.
- Plus … all sessions will be recorded, so you can catch-up on demand whenever you like!
Please note: All workshops will be selected on the day.
