Developing Number Knowledge Assessment, Teaching and Intervention with 7-11 year olds

Thursday February 22, 2024

Courses Venue: Antrim Board Centre, 17 Lough Road, Antrim, BT41 4DH

The four-day training course for classroom teachers builds on the two-day course and is based around the text ‘Developing Number Knowledge for 7-to-11-year olds’, Robert J Wright, David Ellemor-Collins, Pamela D Tabor (Sage 2011).

Dates: The start of this course has been postponed and will now commence on 22nd & 23rd February 2024 with two follow up days on 11th and 12th April 2024 

Drawing on extensive programs of research, curriculum development, and teacher development, this course offers a coherent, up-to-date approach emphasizing computational fluency and the progressive development of students’ mathematical sophistication. It is organized in key domains of number instruction, including structuring numbers 1 to 20, knowledge of number words and numerals, conceptual place value, mental computation and written computation methods.

Training takes place over two sessions. An initial two days is followed by a further two days. Delegates will need access to a videorecorder (and playback facilities) as assessment and teaching sessions are routinely filmed during gap tasks.

The cost of the four day training is £575 per person including Assessments Packs and a copy of the Developing Number Knowledge text (Sage Publication). Refreshments are not provided by the Antrim Board Centre but can be purchased for cash in the canteen.

Training can be booked by groups of schools or local authorities to share costs and to make up the minimum number of 15, maximum 20 people.
