Primary Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Development of Mastery Subject Knowledge –  Focus on mastery teaching methods and resources: upcoming NQTs/NQT+1/Teachers changing phase

The London Central and West Maths Hub and The University of Roehampton are offering a 4-day subject knowledge development programme for those about to be NQTs, those who have just finished their NQT year, or for teachers who are changing phase – in a school that is already implementing mastery approaches.  This will be with an in depth focus on phase specific knowledge.  This joint project will focus on Teaching for Mastery teaching methods and resources.

The first day will focus on the principles of Mastery and Problem Solving across all the Primary Phases.  Days 2-4, will be year group specific, (Rec/Yr1, Yrs2/3, Yrs4/5/6) once participants know which year group they will be teaching the subsequent September.  These sessions will focus specifically on place value, addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division. Intersession tasks and readings will also be given.  There will be opportunities for planning and preparing for the start of term.    The sessions will involve development of subject knowledge and pedagogy through practical, collaborative tasks, with opportunities to observe and analyse lessons, as well as planning for the new year.

To ensure delegates can attend these sessions, days 2-4 are set during the school summer holidays.  Attendees will be required to attend all 5 sessions.  The sessions are free but any cancellations post booking will incur a charge – per day missed.
