Today (22nd January 2020), Mrs Fay Perdicchia, Maths Lead for The Mead Academy Trust, and Mrs Heather Elliot, Year 2 class teacher and Maths Lead at Castle Mead School, hosted 20 teachers from other local schools who are all members of their Boolean Maths Hub Teacher Research Group (TRG).
The TRG Lead, Ty Newtown, said “A huge thank you to Fay and Heather for hosting us all today and again to Heather for the fantastic lesson study. What a lot to discuss, think about and reflect upon. I hope [everyone] found it as interesting and useful as I did.”
The school has not hosted a TRG before, although our teachers are well-versed in Lesson Study. (You can read more about this core approach to teacher CPD here.) Heather commented that “I found the experience really useful and great to reflect on things that I don’t always pick up on when I’m experiencing it every day!”
Thank you to Fay and Heather for their time and effort in organising such a valuable learning experience for all involved.
