Work Groups in this project focus on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8. Participants will explore a selection of high-quality resources. Checkpoints, Multiplicative Reasoning and Algebraic, Thinking materials.
A lesson study approach is encouraged, where all participants focus on a particular aspect of the maths-curriculum and work collaboratively to develop this in their schools. Cross-phase classroom observation and discussion of practice are
encouraged wherever possible.
Who can take part?
This project is for both primary and secondary schools. It may be particularly suitable for linked 'families' of schools, primary, secondary, etc. A 'family' could be a secondary school and their associated (feeder) primary schools or groups of schools from within a MAT. Lead participants should be teachers of Years 5-8, ideally with some responsibility for curriculum development.
What is the cost?
FREE - the project is fully funded by Central Maths Hub so is free to participating schools in Birmingham, Dudley and Sandwell.
