Seen and Heard

Seen and Heard shines a light, via photographs and conversations from classrooms, on a specific example of the mathematics learning experience, the aim being to stimulate thought and questions about how you would react to similar events in your own classroom.

Responding to the following question from the end of KS1 test:

three children recorded the following:

  • What does each child understand about how to solve the problem?
  • What would you expect them to notice and know that would be useful for solving this problem?
  • Where are the difficult parts for each child in reaching a correct solution? If each child had reached a correct solution, would you be happy that they are working as expected at the end of KS1? Why?
  • How could you support the children in using their understanding of what happens when you subtract ten from a number to solve this problem? What images/resources might you use?
  • What would you do next?
