Transition Project for years 5 – 8

Y5-8 Continuity

The project aims to improve communication between Key Stages 2

and 3 by taking an aspect of the mathematics curriculum or a

pedagogical approach as the focus for the work.

Teachers from different phases work together collaboratively to

develop a consistent approach to their chosen aspect through discussion,

joint lesson design and delivery, observation and the development of

documentation to support continuity. As a result, channels of communication are established and there is an increased focus on curriculum and pedagogical continuity at key transition points which supports children as they move from KS2 to KS3.

Target Audience

The participants will be a mix of teachers from secondary schools and primary schools, ideally where the schools are linked locally.

Maximum 2 participants per school.

An open classroom session will be provided by one of our Primary Mastery Specialist teachers. This is a very exciting opportunity to see a live lesson demonstrating the core skills and attributes of mastery teaching.

Target Audience

We are inviting schools within Tameside to send members of staff to participate in this event. Ideally one of these members of staff needs to be a senior leader or the Maths Lead within school.

The lesson will be followed by a discussion and feedback therefore the full morning needs to be attended.

Early Years: Supporting effective transition from Reception to Year 1

Target Audience: This project is aimed at schools who are already committed to teaching for mastery and  have previously engaged in a TfM development workgroup
Programme Outline:
The Work Group 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.

Location: TBC
