At Croxby our Maths provision is based on the Same Day Intervention approach to teaching.
Same Day Intervention
Same Day Intervention (SDI) is an approach to teaching maths that was developed by a primary school teacher. Teachers adapt their classroom style based on Shanghai methods, for example using frequent modelling and an ‘I do, you do’ approach in initial class teaching. After an input, pupils answer some fluency questions independently. The children mark then their own work and using a framework, choose their next level of challenge. At Croxby the children choose whether to be:
‘Super Spicy’ where the children complete reasoning or problem solving work;
Spicy where the children complete more fluency work to hone their skills;
‘Hot’ which indicates further adult support required.
The remaining minutes of the lesson is an intervention session, where the teacher works with the ‘HOT’ group of children so that they can efficiently address common misconceptions. The aim is to use the additional support to ensure that all children reach a certain level of understanding by the end of the day, preventing an achievement gap from forming.
Our Maths curriculum follows the fabulous resource created by ‘White Rose Maths’. You can follow them on Twitter @WhiteRoseMaths or visit their website www.whiterosemaths.com.
