Event description
This webinar is the 4th of 5 in our maths CPD series. It will explore practical methods of differentiation for students.

About this Event

The way differentiation has been explored and used in the classrooms has massively changed over the last couple of decades. In this webinar, we will explore practical ways for teachers to plan for children’s self-differentiation during their independent work. It’s a case of asking for less but expecting more out of your students, whilst keeping an open ceiling for all learners to thrive at their own pace. It’s about deepening learning to achieve mastery, rather than just adding on the next topics in a shallow way. We will look at developing an example of a worksheet that you can give your whole class regardless of starting ability or confidence level, based on three foci: Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving, and Challenge. 

This webinar will be led by Raquel Thomson. It is part of a series of 5 Maths webinars that create a pathway of professional development for primary school teachers. Participants are invited to join all webinars to deepen skills in maths teaching across a variety of areas, or to just join single webinars that address specific areas of need.

Raquel Thomson is in her second year at Nord Anglia International School Hong Kong, currently in Year 5. In her 12th year of teaching, she was previously Head of Maths in the UK for 7 years (covering Reception to Year 8 maths curricula) where she led a team tasked with the development and embedding of a mastery approach to teaching and learning. Raquel loves everything about maths teaching and even in her spare time you will find her perusing Twitter for inspiration and further subject knowledge. She has been privileged to have received excellent CPD in the borough of Wandsworth where she worked for 10 years and is keen to share her experiences as well as learn from other maths enthusiasts.
