Primary maths subject knowledge enhancement

Primary Mathematics Subject Knowledge Enhancement

A 3 day training programme aimed at KS2 teachers to develop maths subject knowledge and pedagogical understanding. The programme includes opportunities for delegates to collaboratively plan lessons incorporating materials from the training days.

Many KS2 teachers are aware that their own maths subject knowledge is a barrier to them delivering high-quality teaching and learning, particularly in light of the heightened expectations in the new NC. This work group will identify and address gaps in the participants’ subject knowledge. It will also focus on effective pedagogies for teaching maths at KS2.

Work Group outcome:

Primary teachers will have improved maths subject knowledge and better understanding of relevant pedagogies, enabling them to deliver higher quality teaching, learning and assessment at KS2.
