This is a one day practical course that uses the context of PE and Sport alongside practical learning approaches to support the teaching of numeracy & literacy across primary schools, in order to increase engagement and achievement.
Based on research and trials in primary schools across the country, this course uses existing resources alongside the National Curriculum Programmes of Study. It has been written by teachers for teachers, so it really gets to the heart of the challenges and offers evidence based solutions.
Delegates will receive practical teaching strategies alongside resources including; activity cards linked to reading, writing, speaking and listening and an introduction to the ‘Maths of the Day’ teaching programme. The format of this course provides numerous opportunities to share and develop ideas in collaboration with other teachers. The course will also signpost to further free to access resources endorsed by YST.
- KS1 and KS2 teachers who would like to explore a more active and multi-sensory approach to teaching numeracy & literacy. This would also be ideal for numeracy & literacy coordinators.
The course will:
- Provide an understanding of the link between PE/Sport and numeracy & literacy and how to apply it to the school setting.
- Provide an opportunity to share ideas and be part of a learning community that develops good practice for numeracy & literacy teaching across Key Stages 1 and 2.
- Enable children to be more engaged and inspired by the active learning strategies which will in turn help them to aspire to achieve in numeracy & literacy through active learning.
