SPECIALIST KNOWLEDGE FOR TEACHING MATHEMATICS
PRIMARY TEACHERS

 

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it.
 
This project is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of primary maths.
There are two pathways: Number and Spatial Reasoning. Each pathway consists of several core units and looks at specific topics as well as policy and practice. Exploration of modules in these pathways will take place during the course of the academic year, over the equivalent of four days. 
 
What will you learn?
Your pupils will:
  • demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths, being willing to have a go, persevere, and share their mathematical ideas
  • be able to explain their maths and their mathematical thinking using appropriate language
 
You will:
  • review your practice as a result of the sessions and make practice-specific adaptations to impact on pupil outcomes
  • enhance your maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key structures in each mathematical area covered
 
Who can take part?
These programmes are designed for primary teachers who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. This may be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or have not received maths-specific training.
 
What is the cost?
The SKTM Primary Teachers Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to state-funded participating schools.
