As teachers, we know that pupils often struggle with the real-life problem solving demands of measurement. These two hands-on workshops will help teachers develop pupils’ conceptual understanding of measurement, through engagement in child-centred activities, enabling pupils to communicate, reason and solve practical measurement problems, in real-life contexts. Opportunities for home-school linkage in measures will also be explored as well as a range of assessment strategies. Workshop 1: Explore how pupils develop their conceptual understanding of Length, Area and Weight, followed by engaging in a range of practical activities, examining the opportunities for genuine linkage and integration of measures across the curriculum. Workshop 2: This follow-on workshop explores how pupils develop their conceptual understanding of Capacity, Time and Money. The practical activities are designed to engage all pupils in seeing the real-life application of measures. Finally, teachers will examine a range of methods to assess pupils’ ability to reason and problem solve in measures.

 This  is a 2 day workshop
