Join to establish how Cuisenaire rods can be used to teach a number of maths concepts to children so they have deep conceptual understanding.
This ‘hands-on’ online workshop will enable participants to learn about how Cuisenaire rods can be used to support children with understanding mathematical concepts across a number of Key Stage 1 and 2 National Curriculum domains, including whilst representing problems.
- To elicit the potential of Cuisenaire rods to strengthen children’s understanding of mathematical concepts, as well as to develop their problem solving skills linked with reasoning.
- To be able to use Cuisenaire rods to effectively advance children’s learning linked to National Curriculum concepts.
This session is suitable for Maths Subject Leaders, KS1 and KS2 Teachers, and KS1 and KS2 Teaching Assistants.
Prior to becoming a maths consultant, Nathan taught children in Years 1-6 across three Oxfordshire primary schools, including those in both urban and rural settings. During this time, he qualified as a Maths Specialist Teacher (MaST). It consequently led to him becoming part of the National College for Teaching and Leadership’s ‘small schools making an impact’ programme.
Driven by his passion for helping to ensure that all children access mathematics learning to the full, Nathan has more recently worked as an NCETM accredited independent maths consultant to support schools across the country in delivering high quality teaching and learning – most notably across the Early Years and Primary phases. As well as providing training, he continues to work alongside classes and groups of children to explore how they learn best.
