Code: ECM - CS104 ECM - Raising mental arithmetic standards across KS2, including preparation for the times table test

Mental fluency is paramount to learning successfully in mathematics and is much more than what a child can do in their heads. The implications of the end of key stage tests clearly indicate that there is a requirement for children to be mentally fluent at a higher level than previous years. Do your pupils approach their mathematics with confidence, flexibility and are able select efficient strategies? Do your teachers teach your children to look for patterns and connections when teaching mental efficiency so they can explain their methods, and produce accurate answers efficiently? This course will: • Help delegates to consider the elements needed to ensure their pupils approach their mathematics with confidence and flexibility; Delegates will look at three types of fluency in mathematics - Efficiency, Accuracy and Flexibility and teachers will explore the use of manipulatives, appropriate connections and consolidation in meaningful contexts to aid fluency. • Look at strategies to support retention of times tables facts; Delegates will explore opportunities to practise core facts and skills, in interesting contexts and leave with strategies and activities to use in the classroom to enhance all aspects of fluency and children’s reasoning skills
