Training on Number Fact Teaching
The comprehensive Number Sense Maths training programme is designed to help you get the most out of the programme resources, guidance and support to help you implement the programme successfully. All session are free unless a charge is stated, and are delivered over zoom.
Introductory training (open to all)
A free, live introductory webinar focused on how to develop the addition and subtraction fact fluency of the children in your school. The training includes 45 minutes on the principles of number fact teaching and an overview of the Number Sense Maths programme and resources. There will also be 15 minutes (or more if needed!) for questions and discussion.
The training is designed for primary school teachers, TAs and leaders, both for those new to implementing Number Sense Maths, and for those at schools who have not yet subscribed. (The material covered is the same in each session).
Getting going webinar
A free, live webinar running in the first few weeks of each long term for schools getting started with Number Sense Maths. The 30 minute webinar reviews the daily plans and guidance written to support launching and implementing the programme. It also outlines and guides you through the actions we suggest taking to ensure all of your staff are ready and confident to start structured number fact teaching.
The webinar is designed for the staff member(s) who will be leading the implementation of Number Sense Maths: the maths lead, KS1 lead or other nominated lead.
Please note the live webinars for Getting Going have now finished for the Autumn Term but there is a recording of this webinar in the Teacher Portal. To find the recording just log in to the Teacher Portal, go the the Teacher Guidance section and scroll down to the section labelled Getting Going.
Implementation support and PD (subscribers only)
Our free, live subscriber coaching supports teachers/TAs who are using the programme in school. Each session has ~30 minutes coaching on a specific theme or aspect of the programme, followed by ~30 mins live Q&A on any implementation questions you have or areas you would like support with. There are 4 sessions held every long term (12 sessions a year).
The coaching sessions are open to all teachers/TAs at subscribing schools. The sessions are not recorded in order that attendees can speak freely. However, a video with a recorded voiceover to the slides used in the coaching is available after the session.
Please note: We advise attending introductory training and starting to implement NSM before coming to coaching. You can then use the coaching to improve your understanding and implementation.
Through six sessions, the in-depth training course covers the key elements of number fact teaching:
- Number composition
- Fluency within 10
- Ten and A Bit numbers
- Bridging 10
- Extending to two digit calculation
Teachers join a cohort of engaged number fact teaching practitioners, sharing advice and support in the live training sessions and in the online community group.
Open to all teachers/TAs at subscribing schools the cost is £75 + VAT per person. Courses are available during the day or through twilights.
