Fractions in KS2

21 May @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

£30 per person

A practical workshop unpicking fractions in KS2.

Fractions can be both fascinating and challenging for students in KS2!

In 2023, 26% of the KS2 SATs were on fractions decimals and percentages. This workshop will deepen your understanding of teaching fractions and equip you with practical strategies to support and extend ALL children’s understanding. We will explore the different stages of understanding and unpick common misconceptions.

This event will take place via Zoom and is suitable for Maths Subject Leaders, Primary Teachers, and Primary Teaching Assistants.

Joe Burbank has over 18 years of experience in primary education and possesses an in-depth understanding of mathematics teaching in the EYFS, KS1, and KS2. He served as the Assistant Head Teacher at Stockham Primary School for 11 years before transitioning to a full-time role as an independent maths consultant. Throughout his career, Joe has held numerous leadership positions, including Acting Headship, School Governor, and Key Stage Leader. His contributions were instrumental in Stockham Primary School achieving an Outstanding rating from Ofsted in 2019.

Under Joe’s leadership, Ofsted noted the school’s ambitious approach to teaching mathematics, which is consistent across the school. Pupils of all abilities in each class access key mathematical knowledge and concepts at the highest level they can. Pupils master any new mathematical knowledge very well because it is embedded through exercises, tests and teachers’ probing questions. Pupils use their embedded knowledge and secure understanding of concepts with great flair when solving mathematical problems.

Joe holds qualifications including the MaST (Maths Specialist Qualification), NPQH (National Professional Qualification for Headship), and NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics) Professional Development Lead Qualification. He serves as a Local Leader of Maths Education and facilitates workgroups for the BBO, Mobius, and Enigma Maths Hubs. Additionally, Joe provides support to schools across Oxfordshire and beyond, enhancing their maths leadership capacity and provision through activities such as learning walks, team teaching, parent workshops, and whole-school professional development programs.
