Y5 – Y8 Continuity
(Deadline to express your interest is Tuesday 11th December)
Fractions, ratio and proportion have been given a much greater focus in both the recent KS2 and KS3 curriculums and this is also reflected in the new GCSE exams. Deepening pupils understanding of the underlying multiplicative mathematics is crucial to supporting progress across KS2, into KS3 and beyond.
This tried and tested Work Group model allows KS2 and KS3 teachers to work together, using specifically designed lessons and research-based professional development materials, to focus on the most effective teaching and learning approaches in this area.
This Work Group is for teachers from primary schools or secondary maths departments looking to improve teaching and learning and develop greater continuity of approach across KS2 and KS3 in this significant area of the curriculum. Teachers from linked feeder primary AND secondary schools will be given a priority place for this project but it is not essential in order to express your interest. Please get in touch with your link school to see if someone from that school would be interested, so you can both apply.
Schools and departments will:
Schools involved will need to commit to the release of the same nominated teacher(s) for all three workshops and to support them in the gap tasks. This will include supporting wider staff engagement with a Lesson Study, between workshops, on one of the project lessons. The school will also support teachers in summarising and evaluating the impact of their participation in the Work Group.
