This Work Group is for teachers and subject leaders from Key Stage 1 and 2 wanting to develop their understanding of primary age mathematics, and who would like to further develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. It will be particularly relevant for NQTs/RQTs, teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.

  • To develop the understanding of teachers in: Number sense, additive structures (Including subtraction), multiplicative structures (Including division) and fractions.
  • To understand the journey of mathematics from Key Stage 1 through to Key Stage 2.

4 half day sessions.

Participants and their schools 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 Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
