Tom Manners - Loves Talking Maths Teaching


I’m an SLE that loves discussing pedagogy with teachers and leaders and enjoy sharing my knowledge and interest as often as possible. I hope that the CPD, research, videos and interviews on my website give you access to just some of my enthusiasm.

We know that passion is key when delivering maths lessons – and if you have that, then you will want to work with me, as I have it in spades!

Guest video of the month

I wanted to include Numberblocks in this section of the website as I love the programme (and I will make my two-year-old son love it too!) In every episode I have watched, I have seen examples of variation, representation and derived facts. In this video, Debbie Morgan (primary lead for the NCETM) explains how they can be used to support pupil’s mathematical understanding.

“Aim for depth (rather) than superficial coverage ”

Anyone come across blogs / thoughts / videos / presentations on what @NCETM Teaching for Mastery looks like specifically in KS5?

Would be interested to see if so!
