Year 5 to 8 Continuity Cohort 2

Year 5 to 8 Continuity 

 

This tried and tested Work Group model allows KS2 and KS3 teachers to work together, using specifically designed lessons and research-based professional development materials, to focus on the most effective teaching and learning approaches.

 

Teachers will gain knowledge and understanding of:

  • The principles of Teaching for Mastery  
  • Representations and structures used and explored in upper Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 and how these support the development of conceptual understanding and mathematical reasoning
  • Shared approaches to planning and delivery of the mathematics curriculum across KS2 and KS3
 

Schools will:

  • Have opportunities to develop greater continuity in teaching approaches across KS2 and into KS3 
 

Who is this for?                                                            

This project is for KS2 and KS3 mathematics teachers looking to improve teaching and learning and develop greater continuity across the transition. Each Workgroup will ideally consist of teachers from linked or neighbouring primary and secondary schools.

 

What is involved?

Workgroups will meet several times over the year, with participants engaging in gap tasks in their own schools between meetings

 

Participants will be expected to

  • Attend all Work Group sessions               
  • Complete Gap tasks             
  • Maintain a reflective log
  • Contribute to the national evaluation process through a short survey after the Work Group has finished
