Primary Projects 2020/21
Primary Mastery Readiness Work Groups
This programme is for schools who have a commitment to developing a whole school approach to teaching for mastery and would like to start their mastery journey. Your school will be part of a Work Group where you will benefit from bespoke support from one of our experienced Mastery Readiness Leads, as well as collaborative workshops with other schools.
Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics
Work Groups in this project, which are available in three strands: early years practitioners, primary teachers, and teaching assistants (early years and primary), will focus on developing mathematical subject knowledge in conjunction with understanding the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it. Understanding of mathematical structures will be explored so that participants gain a detailed understanding of how children learn early mathematical concepts.
Primary Teaching for Mastery Sustaining Work Groups
This is for all primary schools who have previously been involved in teaching for mastery via a Development or Embedding Work Group, or who are Mastery Specialist schools. It brings together schools across the Maths Hubs Network that are working on continued development to sustain their teaching for mastery approach to mathematics. It is new in 2020/21 and builds on the work carried out in previous teaching for mastery Work Groups This year it will particularly focus on curriculum recovery. It will support schools in helping pupils make up for lost time through focusing on what really matters and providing a network of mutual support and expert guidance.
