Second year students studying the Education BA (Hons) are set to embark on their eight-week placements this February.

Primary education maths poster presentations

Second year Primary Education BA(Hons) with QTS students recently completed their poster presentations as part of the Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Mathematics module.

The module supports students to develop a deep understanding of children’s learning of calculation and practical approaches to teaching. They include analysis of subject knowledge, justification of their choice of mathematical resources and a reasoning task related to the chosen strategy.

The posters are the final assessment of the students’ learning about how to teach mental and written calculation strategies in the primary setting before they embark on their second phase of school-based training with one of our partnership schools.

Education Society

A brand new society has recently been set up by a group of second year students on the Education BA(hons) course to offer a place to share thoughts, ideas and for students to get to know each other across all courses.

Kallan Thomas, society president said “we wanted to find a way of being able to connect with other cohorts from all undergraduate and postgraduate routes within the School of Education and thought a society would be a great way of building a community.

The society is open to everyone, where you will be able to meet with new people who share a common interest in Education. We are organising social events, movie nights, interesting talks by influential speakers in the Education field and much more”.

The Education Society recently hosted their first event, which was a bowling tournament and the turn out was great!
