Maths Conference 2019 - A4 Flyer LR



Numeracy Conference

Mastery in Primary and the Early Years:

What’s the same, what’s different?




School Alliance

‘What’s the same, what’s different?’ is a key question in helping children develop an

understanding of mathematics and make discoveries for themselves. At the first annual

Nottinghamshire Numeracy Conference, we will be exploring this question on two levels.

Firstly, between mastery and ‘traditional’ teaching approaches and secondly between

primary and the Early Years.

If we learnt anything from this year’s SATs papers it is that we are being encouraged to,

and rewarded for, getting children to think about and understand maths, rather than to

just ‘do it’. Our first keynote, Anne Watson will guide us on a journey through variation, and

how lessons and tasks can be designed to nurture thinking, discovery and deep


Also, we will be exploring mastery in the Early Years;

looking at how we can develop great mathematical

thinkers from the moment children first step foot in

our schools. To guide us on this journey, we are

exceptionally excited to welcome our second

keynote, Sue Gifford.

Each keynote will be followed by a round of

workshops, delivered by specialists from across the

region. The idea behind the conference is to bring

maths leads and early year leads together, to develop

a greater level of connectivity within schools. If you

don’t have an early years setting, fear not, there will

be plenty to keep you engaged across the day.
