Comments from teachers' and practitioners' course evaluations 2011

Brent Local Authority: ‘Young Mathematicians Calculate’: 4th February, 2011

How will you use the outcomes of this session (in the short and long term)?

  • Forming short and long term plans for involving other adults
  • Organise parent/carer workshop and have a focus on up-skilling practicalities to the value of children’s mathematical mark-making
  • Greater emphasis on developing mathematical thinking and representations
  • This session will impact on my practice – in terms of promoting an ethos/culture which encourages and promotes children’s graphical representations
  • Continue the good practice in the setting
  • Think about my modelling and using problem solving to get children mark making in maths
  • Less teacher guidance – hold back and let them explain or not!
  • Make it relevant – interesting to the children
  • Has really made me think about my approach to teaching and how to support children’s thinking using graphics

Other comments:

  • Some of the reflective sessions seemed very interlinked, as people say what it is they want to improve in each section
  • Really enjoyed all elements, especially the way it was broken down into different groupings
  • Has given me more confidence and has made it more clear what I need to do in order to encourage my children to represent and explain their methodology and their thinking and mathematics
  • Looking forward to Redcliffe visit in March
