Projects  >  Primary  >  Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics - Primary Teachers


Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it

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 the equivalent of four days, spread out over a minimum of two terms. Professional learning and practice development continue throughout, with participants implementing new ideas into their daily practice.


What will you learn?


  • Your pupils will positively engage with maths that challenges them

  • Your pupils will be able to explain their maths and their mathematical thinking using appropriate language

  • You will identify pedagogical approaches that will enhance teaching and learning, and know how to plan for these

  • You will enhance your maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key concepts in each mathematical area covered
