Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics Programme 

 

Primary School Teacher

 

There is more to subject knowledge than being able to do the maths yourself. The Primary SKE Work Group develops primary teachers’ mathematical subject knowledge so they can understand, teach and support pupils effectively. A key focus is not only improving the participants ability to ‘do’ mathematics but also to ensure they have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to teach their pupils well.

Work Groups will explore maths in depth, making connections between topics and concepts. Participants will also work collaboratively, led by a local leader of maths education (LLME) to develop deep and secure subject knowledge and appropriate pedagogy.

As a result of this project, participants will not only be able to ‘do’ mathematics but will also have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to teach their pupils well. Teachers will develop both their knowledge about mathematics and knowledge about the teaching of mathematics, developing better pedagogy and being aware of how pupils learn and how to teach the content most effectively.

Classroom practice will develop through participants’ engagement with gap tasks between meetings, trying out activities with their pupils to promote understanding, reasoning and fluency. Planning for teaching, learning and assessing will be improved.

Teacher Assistant 

 

The Teaching Assistant SKE project is designed to develop teaching assistants’ subject knowledge in maths so they can support children’s learning in the classroom and in small intervention groups.

Groups will explore maths in depth, making connections between topics and concepts. Participants will also work collaboratively, led by a local leader of maths education (LLME) to develop deep and secure subject knowledge and appropriate pedagogy so they are well-equipped to support pupils.


As a result of this project, participants’ skills and confidence in the maths classroom will be increased. TAs will develop knowledge of the pedagogy of maths teaching and understand how children think and where their misconceptions stem from. A greater awareness of the three aims of the National Curriculum (fluency, reasoning and problem solving) will be developed, and teaching assistants will understand the role that certain representations, models and manipulatives can play in the development of pupils’ understanding of number and calculation, particularly place value and proficiency. Those involved will get better at working within classes and with small groups of pupils; they will gain knowledge of practical ways to apply the skills and understanding developed during the programme.
