Professional development in the Maths Recovery Programme prepares teachers to approach mathematics instruction in a new way. It emphasises ongoing assessment, careful observation, gauging student’s current knowledge and strategies, and building on them to increase the student’s knowledge, ability and self-confidence in mathematics. It also engages teacher reflection through the use of videotape of both the assessment interviews and the teaching.
A number of key staff have now received training and we shall be looking at our test data to identify any Year 2 – 5 pupils who need help in Maths. Further details can be discussed with Mr McLean.
