Reasoning in KS2 Mathematics

Tuesday 5th February 2019

This day will show teachers and subject leaders how reasoning can be embedded in all KS2 maths lessons.  You will explore how equipment, images and bar modelling can be used to build conceptual understanding.  A range of techniques for engaging children in rich mathematical discussions are shared and you will consider strategies for improving attitudes to maths.


Lots of exciting games and resources will be shared, giving teachers the tools to deepen mathematical learning on a daily basis.  This will include how the ‘I See Reasoning’ ebook can be used  to extend learning in all areas of the KS2 maths curriculum.
