Maths for Teaching Assistants (2 of 6)

Focus: Curriculum
For: Teaching assistants


Each module will be delivered as a stand-alone session and so schools can tailor the CPDF to meet the individual requirements of their staff.

Module 2 – Addition and Subtraction

This module will explore the different forms of addition and subtraction and how the use of manipulatives can support children in moving from a concrete to an abstract approach. Consideration will be given to the structure and vocabulary of addition and subtraction and how we support children in learning these concepts.

Directors’ Note:

You know as well as I do. You’ve got amazing TA’s who really want to support those children in maths. But what support have we given THEM?  Support your TA’s, so they can support the pupils. Six sessions to support your amazing TA’s in Maths. You know it makes sense.
