New Framework for Numeracy
Staff INSET session 2: Recap - Renewed framework A Staff Guide - Accessing renewed framework for Numeracy Staff Meeting: 13/11/06 – by R Patel

Aims of the INSET… By the end of the session…
We can understand the structure of the renewed framework and identify the major changes involved. We can use the Renewed Framework for Numeracy online, understanding and using the hyperlinks to access relevant information.

Recap on previous session?
So much has happened since then!

What are the 7 strands? Use and apply mathematics Count and understanding number Knowing and using number facts Calculating Understanding shape Measuring Handling Data

Strands Strands are NOT equally weighted
Knowledge of number facts have been separated from calculation Methods of calculation have been unified Measures have been kept separate from shape and space Problem-solving has been embedded into the broader strand of ‘using and applying’ mathematics

What were the significant changes in Numeracy?
Knowing & using number facts strand Foundation Stage children start process of observing and finding facts Identified progression from Year 6 into Year 7 where there is consolidation and application of facts Increased expectation in most year groups – specifics may include; - Year 1 pupils recalling doubles of all numbers to at least 10 (previously a Year 2 objective) Year 2 deriving and recalling facts for 2 and 5 times tables and related division facts (previously part of Year 2 and Year 3 objectives) Year 4 children derive and recall facts up to 10 x 10and related division facts (Previously Year 5 objective) Increased emphasis on multiplication and division in all year groups

What were the significant changes in Numeracy?
Calculating strand In the Foundation Stage children begin to use the vocabulary of calculation and learn the processes that support early calculation Emphasis on mental calculation throughout the years with the Progression from Year 6 to Year 7 retaining an  emphasis on mental methods and taking the written methods into level 5 Increased emphasis on multiplication and division in all year groups with some changes in expectation.  For example: Children in reception year will learn to share objects into equal groups and in Year 1 children solve practical problems that involve the combining of groups of 2, 5 or 10 objects, and sharing objects into equal groups Progression in developing and refining written methods starting from Year 3 Earlier introduction for the use of calculators for carrying out calculations - greater clarity of purposes supported by Guidance document

How do we access the renewed framework?
Type in web address: Save in your ‘favourites’ NOW! You should be in the Primary Frameworks Homepage - select Mathematics – navigation panel is on the left hand side i.e. Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy (PSRN) Guidance Papers Learning objectives Assessment Planning

…to accessing the Renewed Framework for Numeracy
Staff Guide… …to accessing the Renewed Framework for Numeracy

Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy (PSRN)
The overview for this area of learning is taken from the consultation version of EYFS - this will be amended following the consultation.   From here, you can link with ‘Planning’ - 14 example plans addressing the Early Learning Goals for PSRN, with each plan following the same format. ‘Aspects’ - Each aspect is made up from one or more of the example planning documents that are in 'Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy/ Planning'. They are organised here into 'Aspects' to support progression through to Key Stage 1. ‘By strand’ -The objectives for Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy (PSRN), or Foundation Stage Mathematics are organised by their strand name. The Early Learning Goals have all been incorporated within the Foundation Stage objectives.

Guidance Papers …were initially known as ‘core position papers’ The three Guidance Papers (Using and Applying, Calculations and Calculators) are available by clicking on the Guidance Papers/Resources link on the left. They are intended to offer further support on planning and teaching and may also be used to inform and guide policy and practice in the school. These can be downloaded in Word/PDF/RTF format from this link.

Learning Objectives Learning Objectives offer you links to:
By strands – all the objectives can be viewed by strand Year groups - selecting a year group will take you to the objectives within a particular strand. Resources – from this link, learning objectives by strand and or by years can be downloaded in PDF format. REMEMBER: The objectives for mathematics are organised by strands and by years.

Assessment The Primary National Strategy team will be working in partnership with QCA over the coming year to develop and trial materials to support periodic assessment in literacy and mathematics…available in Autumn 2007…

Assessment Assessment has two main purposes:
assessment of learning (also known as summative assessment) assessment for learning (also known as formative assessment). Assessment of learning (AoL) - summative assessment Assessment of learning is any assessment that summarises where learners are at a given point in time - it provides a snapshot of what has been learned (in terms of both attainment and achievement). Assessment for learning (AfL) - formative assessment "Assessment for learning is the process of seeking and interpreting evidence for use by learners and their teachers to decide where the learners are in their learning, where they need to go and how best to get there." Assessment Reform Group, 2002

Key Characteristics of AfL
The Assessment Reform Group identified seven key characteristics that were evident in schools where AfL was effective in promoting learning and in raising standards of attainment. AfL is embedded in a view that assessment is an essential part of learning and teaching. involves sharing learning goals with learners. aims to help learners know and recognise the standards for which they are aiming. involves learners in peer and self-assessment. provides feedback that helps learners recognise the next steps they need to take, and how to take them. is underpinned by the confidence that every learner can improve. involves both learner and teacher reviewing and reflecting on assessment data.

Planning The planning structure for each year is organised into five blocks. A block is designed to cover the equivalent of 6 weeks or 9 weeks of teaching over the course of the year. Each block has incorporated into it objectives from the ‘Using and applying mathematics’ strand and from two or three of the other core strands. Each block is made up of three units. A unit represents 2 or 3 weeks of teaching. For each of the 15 units that cover the teaching year there are overviews of children's learning, assessment questions and suggested resources.

For example: Select Year 5 Planning

For example: Select Year 5 Planning

Planning a teaching sequence?
Things to consider… Review of prior learning Identification of where children’s learning will be by the end of the unit Map of Unit to identify possible pathways from prior learning to expected outcomes Identification of a variety of teaching strategies to address outcomes and cater for the learning needs Relevant vocabulary, appropriate resources

How do we support teachers to develop a sequence of lessons?
Develop AfL including use of review, discussion and enquiry activities to assess learning and inform planning Develop teachers’ subject knowledge to support analysis of children’s learning and the setting of high expectations Promote the use of different teaching strategies to match learning outcomes and meet needs of the learners over the sequence of lessons

Library Consists of Guidance documents – 6 Guidance Papers available for downloading ICT resources - ITPs, Spreadsheets, and Interactive Whiteboard Files Intervention materials – Springboard Materials Mathematics publications – Mathematical Challenges for able pupils in KS 1 and 2 (included only at present!)
