A Whole School Approach to Teaching Times Tables (Group 2) | University of Greenwich, Avery Hill Campus | Wednesday, 07. November 2018

Target Audience: Mathematics co-ordinators, willing and able to implement whole school change
Taught Sessions: 4 Half Days
Premise for Project:This Research Project is provided FREE to schools, but we ask that only schools who wish to commit tothe year-long process (including staff release for attendance and to work with colleagues) should research project will be both practical and research led – they have full ethical approval through theUniversity of Greenwich Research Ethics Committee. The project will involve introducing whole schoolchange to teaching ‘Times Tables’ through a structured whole school approach. Change will be rolled out throughthe implementation of ‘Gap Tasks’ over the course of the year and beyond. We have a strongreputation for making positive change. However, there are a limited number of places available, and schoolswishing to take part must commit to this year long research programme – including full attendance, gap tasks,staying in touch between sessions, reflecting and feeding back on whole school impact.
School Commitment:Schools will need to:- allow the same staff member to attend all 4 sessions of the chosen Project- after each taught session, allow time for this staff member to work with the relevant year groupteachers, informing them of key approaches and supporting them to implement these- allow this teacher to engage in the action research process of gathering oral data from class teachers,reflecting and feeding back to the project (with ethical considerations in place). The aim is that thiswill then lead to your school being a part of a publications (written by Project Leads), and schools willhave the option of being named as contributors to the Research attending will need to:- attend all 4 sessions at Avery Hill- implement practical gap tasks – working with teachers and gathering oral feedback of impact- be part of a community of teachers (including through a social platform) supporting each other overthe course of the year and possibly beyond- provide feedback data as and when appropriate, as part of the research element of the project (thiswill mostly be oral – with some brief written notes)
