Tailored consultancy support to develop mathematical problem-solving in real-life contexts.
'Becoming fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics…so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately' is one of the listed aims of the National Curriculum for Mathematics (2014).
Fluency should ideally operate at three levels:
Our Mathematics Consultant, Sam Adams, has developed a set of Fluency Plans for all year groups from Year 1 to Year 6 covering all objectives from the 2014 National Curriculum for Mathematics across six half-terms.
These Fluency Plans are based on introducing an aspect of the mathematical curriculum and then re-visiting later in the academic year that make natural links to other strands within the mathematics curriculum / these objectives are highlighted and the ‘fluency’ links – cross-strand – are drawn out for the teachers.
Sam could also provide in-school planning support as part of the ‘Plan, Teach, Review’ package.
