Specialist Knowledge for Teaching of Mathematics – Primary Teachers – Slough

We are delighted to announce that our Specialist Knowledge for Teaching of Mathematics Work Group for primary teachers in the Slough area starts in November and is now open for bookings!

Please read on for more information and to book your place go to our website.

Who can take part?
These programmes are designed for primary teachers who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. This may be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or have not received maths-specific training.

What is involved?
This project is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of primary maths.

There are two pathways: Number and Spatial Reasoning. Each pathway consists of several core units and looks at specific topics as well as policy and practice. Exploration of modules in these pathways will take place during the course of the academic year, over the equivalent of four days. Participants in the programme may wish to follow one pathway this year, and the other pathway next year.

What will you learn?

  • Your pupils will demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths, being willing to have a go, persevere, and share their mathematical ideas
  • Your pupils will be able to explain their maths and their mathematical thinking using appropriate language
  • You will review your practice as a result of the sessions and make practice-specific adaptations to impact on pupil outcomes
  • You will enhance your maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key structures in each mathematical area covered

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

The Work Group Lead for this programme is Jean Knapp, and this Work Group will be held in person at Holy Family Catholic School in Langley, SL3 8NF.
