Event description
Strengthening the transition from primary to secondary school by focussing on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8.

About this Event

Central to the Work Group is the promotion of cross phase communication between teachers to address issues of maths knowledge and learning transition as distinct from pastoral considerations. The Multiplicative Reasoning resources provide a mathematical focus to the work, although individual Work Groups are free to focus on a different aspect of the KS2/3 curriculum.

The Work Groups promote teaching for mastery approaches across the KS2-3 boundary to ensure consistency in the pupil experience thereby addressing strategic goals relevant to primary and secondary schools, specifically:

(PRIMARY) All pupils develop deep knowledge, understanding and confidence, and are well prepared for the secondary mathematics curriculum

(SECONDARY) Working with schools to address specific challenges in secondary mathematics teaching through the use of teaching for mastery approaches in Year 5-8 continuity.

Participants should be teachers of Years 5-8 in primary, secondary, middle school and all-through schools who have some responsibility for curriculum development, e.g. school mathematics leaders/heads of department.

Linked ‘families’ of schools: ideally teachers from two (or more) secondary schools and some of their associated primary schools will work together.
