Join us for a day of exploring mastery in Maths! Maths mastery is becoming increasingly popular for International schools following a UK curriculum. As we are being asked so much about this teaching approach, we are running a series of free half-day training workshops in Spain. The workshops are designed to help primary school teachers get to grips with exactly what mastery is and how it has the power to raise standards in maths across your school. Tell me more? The workshop will also help delegates to understand the benefits of a growth mindset when teaching for mastery in Maths and how to plan and deliver engaging sessions. We will be using examples from our Power Maths programme. By attending the workshop, delegates will develop their understanding of teaching mastery in Maths and how to encourage Maths confidence in their pupils. ould love you to you join us! How do I book?

Pearson Edexcel Cyprus Summer Forum Our annual Pearson Edexcel Summer Forum this year will take place on Thursday 27th June at the Ajax Hotel in Limassol. You may remember the last couple of years we have run a Problem Solvers workshop and a Behavioural Insights for Education Workshop, both based on our publications from the Open Ideas at Pearson series. This year we are going to be talking about another key behaviour: Mindfulness to build resilience and calm in the classroom. Students can find it hard to cope with the stress around exams and fulfilling expectations. Mindfulness can help them become more resilient in the face of adversity, absorb new content in preparation for exams,and ride the wave of adrenaline that naturally accompanies exam season. Ashley Lodge, Wellbeing and Mindfulness Lead at Pearson, will deliver the workshop and give us an overview of how mindfulness works, the psychology and neuroscience underpinning it and a practice/meditation so that everyone gets to experience it and discuss how they found it. AGENDA: 10am - Start with coffee & breakfast 11-12 - Introduction to Mindfulness 12-12.30 - Lengthy break with snacks 12.30-13.30 - Mindful Behaviours at work 13.30-14.30 - Sit down lunch 14.30 - Event ends REGISTRATION In order to confirm your attendance at the event please set up your profile on the Pearson International Schools Community Site.
