Enhancing Mathematical Subject Knowledge and Pedagogy for Primary Teachers at The Sussex Exchange

Sussex Maths Hub is offering the opportunity for Primary teachers to attend an Enhancing Mathematical Subject Knowledge and Pedagogy 3 day course.

This course is aimed at:

  • Primary teachers who would benefit from developing their knowledge and understanding of the mathematics curriculum to support effective teaching and learning in their classrooms;
  • Primary teachers who wish to develop their mathematical subject knowledge to support effective teaching and learning in their classrooms.

The closing date for applications is Monday 15th October.

During the 3 days participants will:

  • Deepen and extend their own subject knowledge in mathematics;
  • Explore key strands of the primary mathematics curriculum and consider the implications for teaching and learning;
  • Understand children’s expected progression in the different strands of the primary mathematics curriculum;
  • Know a range of ways to support children to develop an understanding of the different strands of mathematics;
  • Reflect on their learning and plan to undertake follow up work in school.

This is a national NCETM work group and therefore participants will be required to:

  • Keep a reflective journal that captures the impact of the work undertaken on the course and back in school;
  • Complete online evaluations requested by the NCETM, including a summative impact report;
  • Complete gap tasks set and reflect on these.

Please consider the work involved when booking participants from your school onto this work group
