Primary Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Primary teachers wishing to develop enhanced mathematical subject knowledge to improve their mathematics teaching are invited to take part in this project. Teachers will not only develop deeper, more connected understanding of topics on the primary maths curriculum but will explore how children learn mathematical concepts and ways to support this. The approaches developed will be consistent with teaching for mastery.

The Sussex Maths Hub has worked hard to share practice on the Teaching for Mastery approach in the primary phase. Some of this has been distilled into a 3-day course that has been delivered over the last few years. It has provided many primary teachers with a concentrated introduction to Teaching for Mastery through practical sessions. This year we have three courses, all of which have started. We hope to run the courses again next year so please do contact us to register your interest.

Course Leaders: Debbie Streatfield and Faye Heath, Independent Mathematics Consultants – Debbie and Faye have been leading numerous highly successful primary maths courses for the Sussex Maths Hub. They are both very experienced teachers who continue to teach on a regular basis and use their up-to-date knowledge throughout their courses.

Enhancing Mathematical Subject Knowledge And Pedagogy for Primary Teachers

This course is aimed at:

  • Primary teachers who would benefit from developing their knowledge and understanding of the mathematics curriculum to support effective teaching and learning in their classrooms;
  • Primary teachers who wish to develop their mathematical subject knowledge to support effective teaching and learning in their classrooms.

During the 3 days participants will:

  • Deepen and extend their own subject knowledge in mathematics;
  • Explore key strands of the primary mathematics curriculum and consider the implications for teaching and learning;
  • Understand children’s expected progression in the different strands of the primary mathematics curriculum;
  • Know a range of ways to support children to develop an understanding of the different strands of mathematics;
  • Reflect on their learning and plan to undertake follow up work in school.

This is a national NCETM work group and therefore participants will be required to:

  • Keep a reflective journal that captures the impact of the work undertaken on the course and back in school;
  • Complete online evaluations requested by the NCETM, including a summative impact report;
  • Complete gap tasks set and reflect on these.

Please consider the work involved when booking participants from your school onto this work group.
