The positives we can take that have imporved since we did our review in Autumn 1 are:
Target Met: Pod Pysgodyn and Pod Pry Cop have established routines for speed maths, TTRS and chilli challenges, which build on the basic skills.
Spreadsheet of evidence is also being used, which highlights the improvements being made by pupils. Staff update this weekly.
Target Met: MyMaths has allowed for more optional home learning that pupils can access when they want.
Home learning menu had cooking linked activities in it this term.
Twitter shows use of digit dog activities #LlanNum.
Teachers use chillis regularly and have a range of different ones avaialble for the pupils.
Targets for us to focus on in Spring term 2021:
Increase amount of numeracy being evidenced through IQ challenges and EPIC books.
Monitor reasoning activities that build upon skills covered in maths sessions.
What a fantastic and productive meeting we had today.
In today's meeting we set out our mission for the year.
We felt it was important to aim to encourage everyone in the school to challenge themselves and have a growth mindset in maths.
We spent some time looking at our books and reflecting on things that are going well and things which could be improved.
This is the list we came up with:
We are doing numeracy in our EPIC books.
We are independently picking our level and if it's too easy we might get a DIN to challenge ourself more.
Better now we've got the other TTRS sheet on a Friday.
We're being challenged by moving up levels to new chillis.
All pupils enjoy the chilli scale of challenge.
Ideas for teachers to consider:
More optional home learning linked to maths.
More cooking activities in home learning, which also make links to numeracy.
Make our own chilli up and our own questions up.
More chillis: ghost chilli, rainbow chilli, lava chilli, super chilli, gold chilli.
More digit dog maths.
