Event Details

Teachers from different phases will work together in this Work Group, to improve communication between Key Stages 2 and 3, with the overall aim of improving continuity of learning by pupils in the four years between Years 5 and 8. Participants will take an aspect of the mathematics curriculum or a pedagogical approach as the focus for their work and develop a consistent approach to it through discussion, joint lesson design and delivery, observation and the development of documentation to support continuity


The programme, which is free to attend, runs from 12:30 to 16:00 on the 27th November 2018, 12th March 2019 and 9th July 2019. 

Who is this for?

Secondary school maths teachers and all primary school teachers. Each Work Group will consist of pairs of teachers, from linked, or neighbouring, primary and secondary schools, working together to develop a shared understanding of the teaching that gives the best chance of pupils progressing steadily in their mathematical understanding between Years 5 and 8


Work Group activity

  • 3 half days of workshops with other practitioners on the programme 
  • Independent study and setting-based work including gap tasks and evaluation
  • Online discussion as part of a professional community
  • Support and mentoring from Work Group Lead


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 representations and structures can be used to help pupils develop sound mathematic understanding. Teachers will develop shared approaches to planning and delivery of the mathematics curriculum across KS2 and KS3. Teachers involved in the Work Group will share and disseminate good practice within their own schools and departments

Expectations of participants and their schools

Attend sessions run by the Work Group Lead. Meet between sessions to plan and carry out gap tasks. Share work, results of gap tasks and reflections with other members of the Work Group

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.
