Event description

Description

There is more to subject knowledge than being able to do the maths yourself. The Primary SKE Work Group develops primary teachers’ mathematical subject knowledge so they can understand, teach and support pupils effectively. A key focus is not only improving the participants ability to ‘do’ mathematics but also to ensure they have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to teach their pupils well.

Work Groups will explore maths in depth, making connections between topics and concepts. Participants will also work collaboratively, led by a local leader of maths education (LLME) to develop deep and secure subject knowledge and appropriate pedagogy.

The programme, which is free to attend, runs over 3 full days, 6th December, 28th February and 20th June.

Who is this for?

All primary teachers from Northumberland, Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland. It is most suitable for those with 2+ years’ experience.

Work Group activity

  • 3 x full day workshops spread across Autumn and Spring term.
  • Independent study and setting-based work including gap tasks and evaluation
  • Online discussion as part of a professional community

Intended Outcomes

As a result of this project, participants will not only be able to ‘do’ mathematics but will also have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to teach their pupils well. Teachers will develop both their knowledge about mathematics and knowledge about the teaching of mathematics, developing better pedagogy and being aware of how pupils learn and how to teach the content most effectively.

Classroom practice will develop through participants’ engagement with gap tasks between meetings, trying out activities with their pupils to promote understanding, reasoning and fluency. Planning for teaching, learning and assessing will be improved.

Expectations of participants and their schools

Participants are expected to be working as classroom teachers. All participants are expected to attend all the sessions and complete gap tasks in their schools between the sessions. They will also be asked to keep a learning log for their own use and contribute to the national evaluation process, probably through a short online survey after the Work Group has finished.

This Work Group is free of charge. However, Great North Maths Hub will charge £40 for non-attendance or cancellation less than 7 days prior to each session.

When booking you will be asked to give your NCETM Username. We ask for this as we will use the NCETM website to coordinate your programme evaluations, in order to report to the DfE. If you do not already have an NCETM username, please create one here https://www.ncetm.org.uk/join

Data Privacy

As part of our role in leading the Great North Maths Hub, we collect and hold a certain amount of data about individuals involved in our work. The data includes name, role (with respect to hub work), school, email address, NCETM username and (in some cases) telephone number. The agreement between us and the Department of Education requires us to monitor and evaluate our work as a Maths Hub, and this is the legal basis for the data that we hold, on, for example, participation in the Work Groups that we coordinate. Such data is reported on a regular basis to the NCETM.
