Designing Learning for Mastery (KS1&2)

NCETM CPD Standard

Course Aims:

  • Understand how to design learning to develop depth of understanding in calculations and fractions
  • Design sequences of tasks using conceptual and procedural variation / intelligent practice
  • Evaluate pupil learning from tasks used in class

By the end of the course, delegates will be familiar with:

  • How to design learning for a teacher for mastery approach
  • What conceptual and procedural variation means.
  • How to design sequences of tasks with conceptual and procedural variation built in.

Course summary: Many schools are now using teaching for mastery resources such as White Rose planning and wondering what this looks like in the classroom. This course enables teachers to learn how a teaching for mastery lesson might look from the perspective of designing lesson/ learning for mastery. A key feature of using mastery can be the effective use of conceptual and procedural variation. During the two whole-day sessions, teachers will develop their understanding of this practice by evaluating and commenting on lessons that have been designed with this in mind and have the opportunity to plan a series of lessons for their own pupils.
