Dawn, Lynne, Emma, Nicola, Lynsey and I had a busy day exploring vocabulary.
We were put to the test by learning some new words and thinking about strategies that help us retain and remember words and keep them in our long term memory!
Repetition, grouping and chunking words are key to helping retain new vocabulary.
We looked at the word web below using it to play a variety of games to aid children’s needs in retaining and learning new vocabulary.
On Tuesday Dawn, Lynne and I had a great morning at Kendray hospital thinking about stammering and fluency.
Below are some great tips to help us support children who may have a stammer or speech and language needs with a do and don’t check list.
Staff development meeting today got everyone thinking about the difference between fluency, reasoning and problem solving and how we can find more opportunities to develop these skills as part of our everyday Maths diet.
Also folks, remember to check out the Twitter Mastery Maths daily question at @MathsMastery. Will you be able to solve it? Answers follow the next day.
Today Sam and I have had the privilege of attending and Early Years Conference which has been very thought provoking and taught us a lot! We came home buzzing here are a few bits and a few questions I thought it was worth sharing.
We had a fantastic workshop on the power of picture books in maths and here are a few key points.
Here are some of the books shown to us today, some we have seen before and some are new for us …
It has been a super day! Our heads were buzzing and questions or thoughts come to see me or Sam.
