This Work Group will focus on representation and structure within the topic of multiplicative reasoning.

About this event

What is involved

• 4 half day (afternoon) workshops spread over three terms

• Gap tasks between the workshops, including trialling new teaching approaches and lesson study-style observations.

• Sharing resources with others in the work group and colleagues in school.

Who can apply?

Year 5, 6, 7 or 8 classroom teachers who wish to develop their teaching of maths, including those who are not maths specialists. You should simply have a strong commitment to improving your teaching of maths in these year groups. Those with school responsibility for maths, such as heads of department, are welcome to participate even if not teaching a Y5-8 class but should attend alongside a colleague who is teaching a relevant class.

What is the cost?

The Work Group is offered free to all state-funded primary and secondary schools in England.

Intended Outcomes

• Participant teachers will gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of progression in mathematical learning between Years 5 and 8, and, in parallel, a clearer understanding of the teaching approaches and pupil experiences that best serve that purpose, particularly in the ‘other’ school phase.

• Participant teachers will further their experience and understanding of how consistent use of resources, representations and structures can be used to help pupils develop sound mathematical understanding.

• Teachers will develop shared approaches to planning and delivery of the mathematics curriculum across KS2 and KS3.

• Pupils will demonstrate improved confidence and engagement in maths at KS2 and KS3.


• Schools will need to commit to the release of the same nominated teacher(s) for all four workshops. Dates are given below.

• Schools will provide support for the gap tasks, including potential proving cover to allow teachers to undertake peer observations, and providing a platform for teachers to share ideas and resources from the Work Group in their schools.
