In Year 1 we follow an active skills based whole class session on problem solving. We see how this is then followed up through a variety of play-based activities across the day. We see the children working in both independent situations as well as in focus groups. They are encouraged to self assess against personal objectives.
In Year 2 we will follow a morning’s Maths session on problem solving using strategies such as number lines. The teacher reflects on how the children’s independent work can highlight any misconceptions children may have and how these observations feed into future planning.
