Code: OTSA/20/8 Ambitious & Inclusive Sensory Story Telling: Joanna Grace

This course is aimed at Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Special school teachers, who are looking to:

  • foster the characteristics of effective early learning in their classrooms
  • create enabling environments with rich learning opportunities and stimulating resources
  • support young people to develop a positive sense of their own identity and preferences

Sensory stories are a glorious paradox. They are very simple, but have the capacity to open the world up, and to create opportunities for connection and communication. They are a porthole through which children are enabled to explore - in a sensory way - the richness of culture, history, art, and all the wondrous aspects of being human.

Joanna Grace is an international special educational needs and disabilities consultant, and is the founder of The Sensory Project.

The Sensory Project is based on the idea that with the right knowledge and a little creativity, inexpensive items can become effective tools for inclusion. In all her work Jo seeks to contribute to a world where people are understood in spite of their differences.

Aims will include:

  • To elicit the potential of ‘Ants on a log’ and Cuisenaire rods to strengthen children’s understanding of mathematical concepts, as well as to develop their problem-solving skills.
  • To understand progression related to using ‘Ants on a log’ and Cuisenaire rods throughout a school.
  • To explore how the use of Cuisenaire rods can provide assessment opportunities for teachers.

Code: OTSA/20/26 Teacher Subject Specialism Training Mathematics

Do you have any non-specialist Maths teachers in your school?
Are you a Science teacher with some Key Stage 3 teaching on your timetable?
Are you a PE teacher covering a Year 10 Set 3 Maths group?

It continues to be widely publicised that nationally there is a shortage of Mathematics teachers and this is affecting schools across every county. This NCTL supported programme is designed to support non-specialist secondary Maths teachers [teachers who have qualifications in other subjects and / or have completed their QTS in other subjects] who are, or will be, teaching Mathematics in your school.

These 10 sessions will provide Maths specific CPD to support the teaching of Maths in the classroom, with the aim of improving the quality of teaching and learning, as well as student outcomes. Each session will aim to provide participants with a greater understanding of how topics interlink and how to plan for progression across the curriculum.

Cost: Free to participants who regularly attend the sessions (at least 7 out of 10 sessions).

 

Feedback from previous TSST in Maths programmes. Participants commented on the impact for their teaching and also the students learning:
'It has helped me look at teaching students in a variety of ways'
'Developed my own Maths knowledge and confidence'
'Alternative approaches for teaching if students fail to understand'


Coaching support (Optional)
We can provide a coach for any of the course participants to continue to develop practice over the duration of the programme.
