NCETM CHECK POINTS
A year’s worth of Year 7 maths activities to help teachers assess understanding and lay foundations for KS3
Getting Year 7 students off to a secure start in maths is important for the rest of their time in secondary school, especially when the pandemic has disrupted their primary school experience.
NCETM COVID SUPPORT FOR SCHOOLS
Materials to support teachers and schools planning and delivering maths teaching in school and remotely at both primary and secondary level are available from the NCETM. All are accessible from the dedicated Covid support page on the NCETM website.
For secondary schools, an evidence-based guidance document to support discussions about recovery curriculum content and pedagogy is available, along with a series of ‘Planning to teach…’ videos and PowerPoint slides offering advice on teaching crucial KS3 topics. CPD materials include a one-hour training session to help understand the implications for Year 7 of the DfE primary guidance, and six Departmental Workshops for any teachers able to engage in collaborative professional development.
COVID RECOVERY RESOURCES
Resources are now available here and in development to support secondary teachers planning lessons to meet the needs of students with varied starting points as a result of interruptions to learning caused by the coronavirus outbreak.”
