Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics- Primary

Outline of Work Group

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.

What is involved?

The programme is based on five core primary modules:

• Policy and impact on practice

• Number sense

• Additive reasoning

• Multiplicative reasoning

• Fractions.

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

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 are the benefits?

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.

What is the cost?

The SKTM – Primary Teachers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

**The London Central and West Maths Hub reserves the right to charge a £75 fee for non-attendance to the sessions or for cancellations to any of the sessions with less than 1 weeks’ notice. **
