This project is designed to support primary teaching assistants in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
Who can take part?
This programme is designed for primary teaching assistants who are supporting maths, and who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. It will be particularly relevant for new TAs or TAs that have not received maths-specific training.
What is involved?
The programme will focus on the following mathematical areas:
- What is effective in the learning and teaching of mathematics?
- Number sense (part 1)
- Number sense (part 2)
- Additive reasoning
- Multiplicative reasoning
These modules are each designed to last three to four hours, but may last longer if delivered online. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.
What will you learn?
- review their practice as a result of the sessions and make specific adaptations to support the pupils they are working with
- understand the key elements that form number sense, forms of addition and subtraction, forms of multiplication and division, and forms of fractions, including precise language, structures and representations.
What is the cost?
The SKTM Primary Teaching Assistants Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
