Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it

Who can take part?

These programmes are designed for individuals who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths to three- to five-year-olds. This may be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or have not received maths-specific training.

What is involved?

This programme is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of early maths.

There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathways: Pathway One: Number Patterns and Structures and Pathway Two: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures. Each pathway is the equivalent of a four-day programme and has three core elements, three associated pedagogy sessions, and a task to support the transition from theory to practice. There is also a final core unit that aims to review quality provision.

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
  • You will review the mathematical learning opportunities and pedagogical approaches across your wider provision
  • You will evaluate and enhance the opportunities to promote mathematical learning in all areas of provision

What is the cost?

The SKTM Early Years Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Supporting pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to develop good number sense

What is involved?

This programme focuses on the key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1. Participating schools will receive central training (online and face-to-face) and a wealth of pupil-facing resources.

There is an expectation that schools will provide a daily teaching session for all children of 10 to 15 minutes, in addition to their normal maths lesson. Lead Teachers in schools will also contribute to an online community to share practice and engage in critical reflection.

Who can take part?

Lead participants from Work Group schools will be three teachers – one each from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – known as Lead Teachers. Some support will also be given to subject leaders and headteachers. Where appropriate, Lead Teachers are expected to support the other teachers in their year group.

This programme and its Work Groups are open to all schools that have not yet engaged with the Mastering Number Programme.

What is the cost?

The Mastering Number Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools. Whilst digital rekenreks are freely available online, schools taking part in the September start cohort of this programme may wish to consider purchasing class sets of physical rekenreks for Year 1 and Year 2 prior to the start of the programme.
