Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics - Primary Teachers

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it.

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.

Who can take part?

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.

What is involved?

The programme is based on five core primary modules:

  • Policy and impact on practice
  • Number sense
  • Additive reasoning
  • Multiplicative reasoning

These core modules are each designed to be delivered over three hours. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.

What will you learn?

Participants will:

  • enhance their maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key structures in each mathematical area covered
  • understand the key elements that form number sense, forms of addition and subtraction, forms of multiplication and division, and forms of fractions, including precise language, structures and representations
  • review their practice as a result of the sessions and make specific adaptations to impact on pupil outcomes.

What is the cost?

The SKTM Primary Teachers Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
