Secondary – Overview

Here at the BBO Maths Hub we have been busy planning for 2020 / 2021 and are delighted to confirm that we will be running the work groups listed below from September :

Mathematical Thinking for GCSE

Teachers or departments keen to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics curriculum and its assessment at GCSE are encouraged to take part in this project. This work group will explore professional development activities focusing on practical and accessible classroom-based approaches. The activities themselves also offer a model for wider departmental engagement with professional development processes, and hence could provide the basis of an effective departmental improvement programme in this area.
We will be running one cohort of this work group in the Oxford area, led by Audrey Curnock.

Yr 5-8 Continuity

Teachers from different phases will work together in this Work Group, to improve communication between Key Stages 2 and 3. Participants in this project will take multiplicative reasoning as the focus for their work and develop a consistent approach to it through discussion, joint lesson design and delivery, observation and the development of documentation to support continuity.
We will be running one cohort of these work groups, in the Witney area, led by Lucy Browne.

Please note that due to the ongoing uncertainty over Covid-19, all work groups will be run remotely until Christmas. Following this we hope to be able to return to a more normal practice of meeting in person. Dates and locations are still in the process of being confirmed but if you would like to register your interest in any of the groups listed we would be very happy to hear from you. Please email with your details and we will then contact you again once the booking process is open.
