Work Groups for Primary
The London South West Maths hub will deliver nationally coordinated projects being run by the maths hub network in 2020/21 in the following areas:
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.
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.
The work group aims to support NQT’s who have had insufficient experience in classroom practice due to COVID-19 lockdown and will require support to develop into a confident mathematical practitioner. It will focus on developing a deep understanding of the participant’s knowledge using the “ready to progress” criteria in order to benefit the pupils who have lost months of education during lockdown. It will also focus on ideas key to mastery that NQT’s may not have had an opportunity to put in to practice with confidence and will help to build the effectiveness of the NQT by addressing CPA, variation and greater depth planning. Support will be given to NQT’s to produce and use high quality resources that support mastery teaching.
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.
With a focus on supporting SEND pupils within the classroom and developing strategies within the day-to-day mastery lessons to reduce or eliminate the impact for further support.
This is part of the continuing programme to develop the teaching for mastery in mathematics in primary schools. The London SW Maths Hub has a group of primary Mastery Specialists who have taken part in the national training. Each of these specialists leads a group of schools in developing their approach to Teaching for Mastery.
This is for schools who were part of a work group supported by a primary mastery specialist in the academic year 2019/20. Each Work Group will be able to access some funding for ensuring that momentum gained this year is continued and that schools are building effective structures to ensure that TfM is embedded in the school. In order to access the funding, each Work Group will need to show how they have developed a plan that will enable school leadership to evaluate their approach to TfM and to embed TfM across the whole school.
Aimed at all primary schools who have previously been involved in teaching for mastery via a Development or Embedding Work Group, or who are Mastery Specialist schools. It brings together schools across the Maths Hubs Network that are working on continued development to sustain their teaching for mastery approach to mathematics.
