Hi everyone, I had a numeracy observation a few weeks ago and didn't do as well as I usually do (pressure of ofsted is looming) so now I'm doing another one and would really like some advice so that I can do this one as well as I can. It's Year 3 and I'll be on block E1. So I'm thinking by that time we'll still be focussing on multiplication. The focus is on the main activity and the plenary, making sure that every group of learners makes progress. I've got a few ideas - thinking of having a party theme and demonstrating number sentences using sweets/balloons etc (not sure how I'm going to implement this one yet though!). Extending HAs by __ x 3 = 21 (or perhaps even to the grid method - not sure which is best. Would really appreciate people throwing some ideas around with me...feeling like I'm losing my teaching sparkle a little bit but I love my job so really want to get it back!
