Key Learning Outcomes

Join us for this inspiring and interactive session where we will investigate mathematical concepts that our children need to understand from Year 3 to Year 6, including place value, inverse relationships, making connections, factors and multiples. We will focus on both the teaching and learning of mathematics, the development of deep conceptual understanding, fluency and procedural and conceptual understanding in the four rules. You will be fully involved where you will have plenty of opportunities to challenge your own thinking and enjoy exploring these areas in depth.


  • To investigate the development in the progression of whole numbers and calculation at Key Stage 2, within a spiral curriculum;
  • To gain an overview of when and how key concepts are introduced in Inspire Maths;
  • To explore the development of mathematical thinking and deep conceptual understanding;
  • To explore place value, fluency, calculating, inverse relationships, making connections, factors and multiples and the use of mathematical language;
  • To consider how Inspire Maths supports children to move from the concrete to abstract understanding;
  • To understand the structures of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, the Singapore approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics and the small progressive steps used in Inspire Maths at Key Stage 2.
