Materials to support teachers and schools planning and delivering Covid recovery maths teaching at both primary and secondary level are available from the NCETM. All are accessible from the dedicated Covid support page on the new NCETM website.
For primary schools and teachers, there are resources linked to the DfE guidance published in July this year. These include ready-to-use training materials, a short video, and a suite of 79 PowerPoints focusing on the ready-to-progress criteria found in the new DfE guidance. The latter would be ideal for schools to use as part of the National Tutoring Programme or for any dedicated catch-up tutoring. The 180 primary video lessons produced during lockdown are also still available. Each lesson has an accompanying teacher guide, and PowerPoint of the lesson for teachers to adapt themselves.
For secondary schools, an evidence-based guidance document to support discussions about recovery curriculum content and pedagogy has been produced, along with a one-hour training session and accompanying materials to help KS3 teachers and maths departments understand the implications for Year 7 of the DfE primary guidance. More materials, including guidance videos and departmental training sessions, will be added soon.
FREE Workshops to support the implementation of the recently released guidance by the DfE to support teachers during the Covid recovery period will take place after Christmas. The publication identifies the most important conceptual knowledge and understanding that pupils need as they progress from year 1 to year 6. These important concepts are referred to as ready-to-progress criteria and provide a coherent, linked framework to support pupils’ mastery of the primary mathematics curriculum.
