As the bell goes: Audio reflections

Teacher - George Samios

Teacher - George SamiosI am Numeracy Subject Leader at Colerne Primary School in Wiltshire. I have spent three years teaching in Years 3 and 4 and I currently teach a Year 1/2 class. I am keen to take part in this project because it requires me to regularly reflect on learning in my classroom in a very different way than I have become used to doing. My hope is that this different perspective and the feedback from other teachers will ultimately make me more effective in how I teach and facilitate learning in mathematics.  
Audio Reflections by George
  • Always Sometimes Never
    George describes a simple yet powerful type of activity to promote communication and reasoning in his Year 1/2 maths lessons
  • Counting down from 40
    George offers a reflections on some of his Year 1/2 pupils' difficulties when counting down in tens
  • Infinity and Infinity Less 3
    George muses on how it is easy to underestimate the mathematical thinking of even our very young learners
  • Place Value Games
    George reflects on how playing games as a way of learning mathematics can be so much more effective (and enjoyable!) than getting children to answer questions in their books
  • The Power of the Word
    George offers a simple yet very telling story on how our language can mislead.
