Financial Literacy in KS2 – Mathematics & Health and Well-being AoLE – SOUTH WALES (Cardiff)
Presenter: Gaynor Murphy,

‘Numeracy is a key enabler in making a number of informed decisions, in particular, managing money and supporting good financial decision‑making and critically engaging with social norms around money’ Health & Well-being AoLE (draft 2019).

According to the latest Estyn report Managing Money (July 2017) “not all teachers have the knowledge and skills to help them deliver financial education confidently”

In an increasingly complex financial world, it is important that we develop pupils’ financial capability from an early age to equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to manage money well and to prepare them for the opportunities and challenges that money brings to their lives.

This course will support teachers in identifying opportunities to plan and deliver financial education, as well as advise and provide a wealth of teaching resources.

NEW Understanding Place Value Progression in the AoLE for Maths and Numeracy SOUTH WALES (Cardiff)
Presenters: Lynwen Barnsley, Gaynor Murphy,

It is essential that pupils develop a deep conceptual understanding of place value as it underpins the methods that they use for calculations with larger numbers.

A secure understanding of place value is also crucial for ordering numbers, making measurements and handling money.

The concept of place value is, however, very abstract; therefore, pupils need to develop their understanding through active approaches that use concrete and visual representations of the decimal number system.
