This project is designed to support primary teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
There are two pathways: Number, and Spatial Reasoning. Each pathway consists of several core units and looks at specific core units and looks at specific topics as well as policy and practice. Exploration of modules in these pathways will take place during the academic year, over the equivalent of four days. Participants in the programme may wish to follow one pathway this year, and the other pathway next year.
The programme is based on five core primary modules:
These core modules are each designed to be delivered over three hours. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.
This programme is designed for teachers who would like to further develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. It will be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.
The SKTM – Primary programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
The face-to-face sessions will be held at Hallam Fields Primary School, Long Meadow Way, Birstall, Leicestershire LE4 3LL
