Hi everyone, I hope you can help me.
I am heading up maths in my primary school and would like to have teachers use fewer worksheets and instead help our pupils develop their mathematical thinking with more problem solving, open ended activities and have the space to work out their thinking rather than using 'closed' answer sheets all of the time - I recognise that worksheets have a place, but am wanting to expand pupil experiences and develop mathematical thinking and I believe the best way to do this is away from worksheets.
Has anyone done this in their primary school? Have any tips? Or perhaps someone can refer me to some literature / evidence to support this?
