1 day course

‘Reasoning is fundamental to everyday life.’ Richard Skemp

Developing numerical reasoning is an important aspect of mathematical development in all year groups and this hands-on day will provide many ideas for actively engaging learners in mathematical thinking and reasoning.

This course will explore three questions:

  • What does numerical reasoning look like in different Progression Steps?
  • What are the skills that learners need to develop?
  • What can we do to improve young learners’ reasoning skills?

Course participants will:

  • Understand how to develop numerical reasoning progressively.
  • Understand the specific skills that learners need to develop.
  • Consider a range of practical ideas for developing reasoning skills, both within focussed mathematical tasks and across other areas of learning and experience.
  • Discuss the importance of teacher questioning in supporting the development of reasoning skills.
  • Consider how to enable learners to work independently by providing engaging tasks in continuous and enhanced provision.

Target Audience: Primary Teachers, Phase Leaders and School Leaders

This course can be delivered in-school.
