Primary & Secondary schools develop curriculum understanding & approaches to planning to achieve best progress from KS2 to KS3

About this event

FREE Work Group aimed at Primary and Secondary schools where teachers from each phase (Yr 5 - Yr 8) work together.

The aim of this Work Group is to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8. Following the disruption to the education caused by the Covid crisis, the transition is more crucial than ever. Central to the Work Group is:

  • Promotion of cross phase communication between teachers, addressing issues of maths knowledge and learning transition as distinct from pastoral considerations.
  • A key feature will be understanding how best to prioritise key aspects of the curriculum to help ensure pupils have mastered the fundamental understanding and skills they need to underpin their progression through upper Key Stage 2 and into Key Stage 3.
  • We will be focusing on a strand that moves across the two Key Stages, e.g. Algebra, Multiplicative Reasoning.

There are two work groups to choose from

Group 1 at Kenyngton Manor Primary School, Sunbury

3 x Online Sessions 3.45-5.15pm: 12 January, 23 March and 22 June 2022

Ideally, Primary and Secondary schools will attend as linked pairs or families together so if possible, please liaise with your linked (feeder) Primary or Secondary school(s). Please do include the linked school's name(s) in your registration so we can match you up.

You are also welcome to join this group as a single / non linked Primary or Secondary school for continuity of pedagogy, resources and representations across KS2/3.

All registrants will be required to join an NCETM Basecamp online community for this Work Group in order to access resources and information. Please ensure you tick the box to confirm this when you register.
