The London South West Maths hub will deliver nationally coordinated projects being run by the maths hub network in 2021/22 in the following areas:
 
A large-scale nationwide programme for teachers of pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, designed to help children embed good number sense.
 
Mastering Number is a new programme offered in 2021/22 by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) and the Maths Hubs Network. It aims to develop solid number sense, including fluency and flexibility with number facts, which will have a lasting impact on future learning for all children. It also involves high quality professional development for teachers.

To develop the use of Subject Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics programmes for Primary TAs to enable them to understand, teach and support pupils in mathematics in the classroom.
This programme is designed for primary teaching assistants who are supporting maths, and who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. It will be particularly relevant for new TAs or TAs that have not received maths-specific training.

 


This project is designed to support primary early career teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
Participants will work deeply on one area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and activities will include lesson analysis and lesson design. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.

 


To develop the use of Subject Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics programmes for teachers of Primary to enable them to understand, teach and support pupils in mathematics in the classroom.
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.

 

The project aims to improve communication between Key Stages 2 and 3 by taking an aspect of the mathematics curriculum or a pedagogical approach as the focus for the work.
Local Work Group design will follow a workshop – school-based work cycle, consisting of several workshops followed in each case by specific school-based work.
A lesson study approach is encouraged where all participants focus on a particular aspect of the maths curriculum and work collaboratively to develop this in their schools. Cross-phase classroom observation and discussion of practice is encouraged wherever possible.
