EYFS & Primary – Overview

Here at the BBO Maths Hub we have been busy planning for 2020 / 2021 and are delighted to confirm that we will be running the work groups listed below from September :

Building Firm Foundations in reception (EYFS)

The intention of this work group is to support a whole-school dialogue and consistency in message as to how best practice in EY feeds into the whole school Teaching for Mastery provision, ensuring good practise in the early learning of maths.
We will be offering 3 cohorts of this Work Group and they will be led by Nathan Crook and Joe Burbank.

Yr 5-8 Continuity

Teachers from different phases will work together in this Work Group, to improve communication between Key Stages 2 and 3. Participants in this project will take multiplicative reasoning as the focus for their work and develop a consistent approach to it through discussion, joint lesson design and delivery, observation and the development of documentation to support continuity.
We will be running one cohort of these work groups, in the Witney area, led by Lucy Browne.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM) EYFS

In this project for Early Years Teachers will develop mathematical subject knowledge in conjunction with understanding the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it. Understanding of mathematical structures will be explored so participants gain a detailed understanding of how children learn early mathematical concepts.
We will be offering 2 work groups, both being led by Joe Burbank.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM) Primary teacher

Work Groups in this project for Primary Teachers will develop mathematical subject knowledge in conjunction with understanding the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it. Understanding of mathematical structures will be explored so participants gain a detailed understanding of how children learn early mathematical concepts.
We will be offering 4 work groups, led by Nathan Crook and Rachael Odeniyi.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM) TA

Work Groups in this project for Teaching Assistants will develop mathematical subject knowledge in conjunction with understanding the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it. Understanding of mathematical structures will be explored so participants gain a detailed understanding of how children learn early mathematical concepts.
We will be offering 2 work groups, led by Dawn Butler.

Supporting ITT Providers

Please note that due to the ongoing uncertainty over Covid-19, all work groups will be run remotely until Christmas. Following this we hope to be able to return to a more normal practice of meeting in person. Dates and locations are still in the process of being confirmed but if you would like to register your interest in any of the groups listed we would be very happy to hear from you. Please email info@bbomathshub.org.uk with your details and we will then contact you again once the booking process is open.
