When: Friday July 12th 2013
Venue: The day will take place at the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Mathematical Sciences.
Who: Primary NQTs, and Secondary Mathematics NQTs
Aim: To support NQTs who want to incorporate rich tasks into their mathematics teaching
The aim of the day is to support beginning teachers who are committed to nurturing confident, resourceful and enthusiastic learners. The day will be highly interactive. We will discuss issues such as finding and using rich tasks to encourage questioning and discussion, and building both our own and our learners’ confidence.
About the day:
The programme is for newly qualified teachers of mathematics working in KS R/1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
This Teacher Inspiration event will be a full day, held at CMS at the University of Cambridge, starting at approximately 10am and ending at approximately 3.30pm, with a mix of plenary speaker sessions and intensive hands-on workshops.
We will contact you by email to confirm your place. Please don't book a place unless you really intend to come - the day is very oversubscribed - and in the event of non-attendance for a booked place your school will be charged.
