About this course

Achieving Greater Depth in Maths is a one-day CPD course that shares the secrets behind strategies for success. With a focus on moving children from dependence to independence, this course will introduce you to a range of effective ways to enable pupils to:

  • achieve ‘actual’ fluency that can be applied in a different context
  • develop conceptual understanding and combine it with fluency to achieve Mathematical excellence
  • use metacognitive approaches to challenge themselves
  • develop a range of reasoning skills
  • use Mathematical skills and knowledge across the curriculum.

The training will also enable you to gain a deeper understanding of what greater depth should look like and how to accelerate children's progress.

The training will:

  • Give teachers a deeper understanding of what ‘greater depth’ means in a Mastery Curriculum, and what it looks like across all year groups;
  • Show teachers how to develop ‘actual’ fluency that children can apply in different contexts;
  • Look at ways to combine fluency with conceptual understanding, moving children to complex reasoning and problem solving;
  • Explore metacognitive approaches that empower children to challenge themselves;
  • Provide you with a range of practical activities to demonstrate what classroom practice may look like;
  • Enable your pupils to achieve excellence in Maths, and apply their skills and knowledge across the Curriculum.
