If you have every wondered what is meant by the term fluency in Maths, our Jo here is on hand to explain all.
For those of you who do not know Jo Wormstone, Jo is of our primary partners here at LNW and has been a teacher for 21 years. For 12 of those years Jo was maths lead at a Trafford primary school and during that time, with Jo's leadership, lots of hard work and CPD, maths became the strongest core subject at her school, validated by summative assessment results.
A word from Jo:
"With the introduction of a new curriculum in 2014 it became clear that we needed to give the children more methods and opportunities to tackle the trickier reasoning and problem-solving aspects of the curriculum. So, I signed my school's maths team to work with the North West Maths Hub in order to develop our own knowledge and understanding, which, in turn, had a significant and positive impact on pupil progress in maths.
My vision is that children shouldn't have an 'I can't do maths' or an 'I'm not good at maths' attitude, because with the right approach and support, all children can excel.
As the teaching and learning of maths is constantly evolving, I have put together a quick guide for you to see how your child/ren are learning maths at school through the latest curriculum guidance." ~ Jo
