The Association of Teachers of Mathematics and The Mathematical Association both produce resources for primary teachers. The MA produces a journal called ‘Primary Mathematics’, and the ATM produce a journal called ‘Mathematics Teaching’

The National STEM Centre eLibrary has a huge range of resources. You will need to register with the site (email address and password required) in order to download resources from the website.

The National STEM Centre eLibrary has many of the old numeracy strategy guidance documents, documents that are still relevant.

Pupil Grouping Strategies and Practices at Key Stage 2 and 3

Shape and Space activities

Teaching mental calculation strategies: Guidance for teachers at Key Stages 1 and 2

Teaching written calculations

Guidance on calculator use

Booklet of calculator activities

Teaching written calculations

Oral and mental work in mathematics

Teaching and learning mathematics through ICT

Interactive Teaching Programs

Mathematical challenges for able pupils in key stages 1 and 2

Reasoning about numbers, with challenges and simplifications

Wave 3 materials for supporting children with gaps in their mathematical understanding

Primary National Strategy ‘Securing Level’ materials

Steps to success in mathematics: Securing progress for all children

The old SpringBoard Units for Maths in KS2 can be found by putting springboard maths into an internet search engine. These programmes aimed to help children who are making slower progress in their maths learning.
