BOOKING NOW OPEN FOR 2021/22 – Please apply below to secure your place. Dates will be forwarded as soon as they are available.

This 5-day programme is designed to support primary early career teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, therefore enabling them to better understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.

It offers high quality maths support, recognising the requirements of the Early Career Framework and the impact of Covid on their ITT experience.

The focus will be on designing effective learning and teaching in maths across 3 areas: building early number concepts, additive reasoning and multiplicative reasoning.

BOOKING NOW OPEN FOR 2021/22 – Please apply below to secure your place. Dates will be forwarded as soon as they are available. 

This 5-day programme is designed to support Teaching Assistants in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, therefore enabling them to further support pupils in maths in the classroom.

A key focus is not only on improving the participants’ ability to understand mathematical structures but also to ensure they have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to best support their pupils.

Three core modules will be addressed: Number Sense (addition and subtraction), Multiplicative Reasoning and Fractions.

Early Years Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Maths (SKTM)

BOOKING NOW OPEN FOR 2021/22 – Please apply below to secure your place. Dates will be forwarded as soon as they are available.

This popular programme is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils with their mathematics across the provision.

The key areas covered will be number patterns and structures, shape, space and measures.

This CPD is delivered by NCETM PD Lead accredited Early Years Professionals.

Y5-Y8 Continuity Work Group

Bookings now open for 2021/22

The key aim of this programme is to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8.

A key theme is multiplicative reasoning and content will include developing a deeper understanding of multiplicative structures, such as fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios.

A lesson study approach is encouraged where all participants focus on a particular aspect of the maths curriculum and work collaboratively to develop this in their schools. Cross-phase classroom observation and discussion of practice is encouraged wherever possible. Participants are expected to consider ways to develop the approaches explored during the project with other staff in their schools.

We are running a Work Group in each of our 5 boroughs – Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale and Stockport – and are recruiting Secondary schools and their feeder Primary schools to take part.

 

 

Mastering Number

NEW NATIONWIDE PROJECT STARTING SEPT 2021 – Aimed at teachers and pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

This new fully funded programme aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future.

Each school taking part will nominate 3 teachers to participate – one each from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
