Greater Depth at Key Stage 2: Teaching Problem Solving Across the Curriculum at Key Stage 2


Maths serves the world and not the other way around. Let’s bring it to life in our classrooms!


Let’s engage our children by starting with with the world children live in, understand and care about. Then they have a reason learn how mathematical structures, images and symbols can help them solve complex problems which allow them to control their world. It also makes them much easier to teach!


Come away inspired by the infinite possibilities in your Key Stage 2 class as we focus on:


  • Developing highly engaging ‘hooks’ for learning – get them wanting to jump upon your ‘learning bus’!
  • Make meaningful links across the whole curriculum so you can teach more maths without losing out on time for Science, D&T, Geography…
  • Learn to plan and deliver the curriculum using the highly effective ‘Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract‘ approach so children develop deep understanding alongside procedures

    Thank you so much Karen. I enjoyed the training this morning tremendously and tried out the ideas straight after lunch with my class leading to 20 mins of enthusiastic discussion! Brilliant!

    The children said they really enjoyed it and wanted to do more so I am definitely going to be changing my teaching!’

  • Thank you for showing us HOW to change. So many courses just tell us what isn't working but not how to go about addressing this. Your approaches make so much sense! Thank you.

  • Just to say thank you again for 3 really brilliant talks at SGIS. We're a small school near Basel and we’d be interested in anything you’re doing nearby (Zurich way) so please let us know!
