Challenging “Rapid Graspers” – a day to explore challenge in the primary mathematics classroom

Book now

During the day, we will :-

  • explore simple yet powerful ways to plan lessons to challenge pupils’ conceptual understanding and thinking
  • establish and understand how to identify the “rapid graspers”
  • develop a clear and practical understanding how a teaching for mastery approach will challenge all pupils
  • share and discuss case studies of schools that have significantly increased the number of children attaining a scaled score of 110+ by the end of KS2 by challenging staff and pupils’ mathematical mindsets
