Year 5 to 8 Continuity Work Group

This workgroup will look at the continuity of approach in teaching from KS2 to KS3.

It will involve teachers working in partnership across the key stage to discuss, plan and observe provision in the key stages.

We will meet three times during the year. The meetings will look at the NCETM materials for multiplicative reasoning and provide a time to share ideas and provision. The participants will have time to plan lessons and then undertake a lesson study approach in their own and the partner schools.

There is an expectation that teachers will visit the secondary / primary school to observe and work with colleagues as part of a gap task.

The intended outcomes are that teachers will gain greater knowledge and understanding in the progression of mathematics between years 5 and 8. This will in turn lead to improved confidence and engagement between KS2 and KS3.

Rowan Waller, from the Hastings Maths Project, is leading this Work Group. The three sessions over this academic year are on:

Session 1 – Friday 7 February

Session 2 – Wednesday 18 March

Session 3 – Wednesday 17 June

All sessions are running from 1:30pm to 5:00pm.

This is a FREE Work Group for 16 teachers from Sussex Schools. All participants will be expected to commit to attending all sessions.
