What is Greater Depth?

Please contact Jo Brereton at mathshubs@painsley.staffs.sch.uk to express an interest in this Work Group.

Teachers from a number of schools will work together to develop their understanding of how to facilitate activities and questions that provide opportunities for all children to work at Greater Depth than the expected standard, as and when they are ready for it, within a teaching for mastery context. Building on findings from the previous project, more schools are being offered the opportunity to explore what it means to work deeply in mathematics. Collaboratively, they will use existing tasks/questions and design their own, to ensure that pupils are not accelerated through the programmes of study but have a deep and sustainable knowledge of mathematics for their age. Please see our flyer for more information and the registration form.

Early Years- Supporting effective transition from Reception to Year 1

DEADLINE CLOSED. Please contact Jo Brereton at mathshubs@painsley.staffs.sch.uk to express an interest in this Work Group.

Many schools are adopting a teaching for mastery approach in mathematics. The starting point for a school is usually Year 1 and then thought is given as to how the approach is built across KS1 and KS2. Schools naturally want to consider the teaching of mathematics in Reception and how the transition to Year 1 can best support children’s learning.

The Work Groups in this project will start by exploring best practice in Early Years and how the principles might build a secure foundation in mathematics for transition into a teaching for mastery approach in Year 1. It will consider the curriculum - what children need to know and understand; approaches to planning and the inclusion of all children; and appropriate resources and contexts for effective learning.
