Nine Ways to Catch Kids Up

Thanks to Mark McDermott from Arnesby for this info.

It’s an American site and offers strategies to help the understanding of maths. The article contains a few very useful graphics which just don’t copy across well.

Here’s the link – Nine ways to catch kids up – please let me know what you think. (Please note that the site itself appears to be quite slow – it looks like it is worth the wait though)


Preparing for Changes ..

The Curriculum

The building blocks for the new National Curriculum

The QCDA have placed a very useful video on their site which overviews the curriculum and gives feedback from schools and teachers who have been involved in pilots.

It builds this picture up very well and explains the interactions fairly clearly (well, I understand some of it now!).
