Thank you for your support of the RME trial extension into the 2020/21 school year. We hope you have had a good start to this unprecedented term! Below is some information to help support you and your Year 9 students this Autumn term.

You will need an RME website account to access the resources mentioned below. If you do not have an account, please email us at rme@mmu.ac.uk to set up an account. Please do contact us if you have any other questions or suggestions.

  1. RME materials for Year 9
    We will be providing a ‘Making Realistic Connections’ RME module for this Autumn. The materials bring together the RME approaches from Year 7 and Year 8 and support transition into Year 9. They can be used flexibly alongside your existing scheme of work, to support students working from home or in the classroom, and are designed to be accessible to all students, regardless of their previous exposure to RME methods.The first component on number and proportional reasoning is available here.
  2. Teachers new to RME
    Introductory materials for teachers joining the RME trial in 2020 are available here. In case any other teachers at your school will be working with the RME students from Year 8, or would like to use the RME materials, please share this information with them. We would be more than happy to set up an RME website account for them – please let us know their names and email addresses.
  3. Online RME training sessions (Next: 5th-9th October)
    We will be organising short after-school online RME training sessions this Autumn. The first set of sessions will take place during the week of 5th-9th October. Further details, and information on release of new materials, will be available here later this month.
  4. RME starter activities
    RME retrieval questions, especially used as a starter activity, can be helpful in re-connecting old students, and introducing new students, to key RME approaches.

Thank you again for your support of the RME trial and we look forward to working with you!
