Fractions, ratio and proportion have been given a much greater focus in both the recent KS2 and KS3 curriculums and this is also reflected in the new GCSE exams. Deepening pupils understanding of the underlying multiplicative mathematics is crucial to supporting progress across KS2, into KS3 and beyond.

This tried and tested Work Group model allows KS2 and KS3 teachers to work together, using specifically designed lessons and research-based professional development materials, to focus on the most effective teaching and learning approaches in this area.

The Jurassic Maths Hub, in partnership with the Learning Academy Partnership (SW) and Maths Hubs, are pleased to be welcoming two Chinese teachers from Shanghai for a 2 week period in January 2018. The exchange is part of a long-term project, run within the Maths Hubs programme, to help teachers in English schools introduce mastery approaches to teaching Maths in their schools.

The Chinese teachers will be hosted at Warberry C of E Academy in Torquay for the duration of their stay. As part of the exchange the Shanghai teachers will be providing teachers from across the region with the opportunity to observe lessons in KS1 and KS2, as well as participating in lesson discussions with the Chinese teachers.

Wimborne Teaching School and Jurassic Maths Hub are very excited to be able to offer an opportunity to be part of a Maths teacher research group during the academic year 2017-18. We are looking for 10 maths practitioners who are using a high-quality textbook material, such as ‘Maths-No problem!’ and wish to develop their practice and learn how to use the material effectively. This is an opportunity to work collaboratively with other practitioners alongside a leading ‘expert practitioner’ to gain a deeper understanding of teaching for mastery and the CPA approach, supported by the use of a textbook.
