Primary Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics Primary Work Group 21-22

This project is designed to support primary teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.

WHO CAN TAKE PART?

This programme is designed for teachers who would like to further develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. It will be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.

WHAT IS INVOLVED?

The programme is based on five core primary modules:

  • Policy and impact on practice
  • Number sense
  • Additive reasoning
  • Multiplicative reasoning

These core modules are each designed to be delivered over three hours. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

  • Participants will:
    • enhance their maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key structures in each mathematical area covered
    • understand the key elements that form number sense, forms of addition and subtraction, forms of multiplication and division, and forms of fractions, including precise language, structures and representations
    • review their practice as a result of the sessions and make specific adaptations to impact on pupil outcomes.

DATES AND LOCATIONS

For 2021/22 these dates are to be confirmed.

COST

The Work Group is offered free to all state-funded schools in England.

COVID-19 RECOVERY

The ongoing impact of the coronavirus outbreak and knock on effects on schools life remain uncertain. So, all Maths Hubs work will adapt to changing realities. There’s likely to be more live online collaboration, for example. In addition Work Groups content will address both schools recovery from coronavirus related disruption and the central maths subject matter of each project.
