On behalf of DfE, Education Development Trust, in partnership with Oxford University, is running an exciting research project on teaching practices in mathematics.

The TALIS Video Study is an innovative international comparative study led by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). England is one of nine countries participating in this prestigious research which will provide insight into the variety of maths teaching practices being used in classrooms across all nine countries. The findings will help us to understand the relationship between teaching practices and pupil and teacher perceptions of maths in England, and internationally.

The study is also an exciting opportunity to develop, at scale, the use of video observation to explore effective teaching and support continuing professional development. Further details on this innovative study can be found on the Education Development Trust website in the article ‘Watch Teaching and Learn More’.

The Jurassic Maths Hub is now looking to appoint four Primary teachers on to the Mastery Specialists Programme to become local experts.

The NCETM have announced details of the recruitment of a third wave of teachers to become specialists in mastery approaches to teaching primary maths. As in the previous two years, 140 primary teachers will be selected to join the Mastery Specialists programme, run by the NCETM in conjunction with Maths Hubs.
Each Maths Hub will select four teachers to take part in the development year of the programme during 2017/2018, and, in each of the following two years, work with small groups of nearby schools to help them introduce teaching for mastery themselves.

This is the latest phase of the wider Teaching for Mastery Programme, funded by the DfE, which will result in the training of 700 Mastery Specialists, who, collectively, will work with around 8000 primary schools between now and the end of school year 2019/2020.

The closing date for returning applications to the NCETM is Wednesday 19 April.

This year’s Jurassic Maths Hub Conference is to take place on Monday 26th of June 2017 at Taunton Racecourse (Orchard Portman, Taunton TA3 7BL). 

Our main speaker this year will be Professor John Mason.  Professor Mason has been involved in the teaching of Mathematics for 55 years.  He has spent 40 years at the Open University and retired 7 years ago. He spends most of his time working on mathematical problems, many arising from pedagogical situations. He makes applets to help colleagues (teachers and students) to explore these problems. He is best known for his book ‘Thinking Mathematically’ (1982/2010).  He has written numerous other publications, books, chapters and papers, all exploring ways to assist teachers to engage learners in mathematical thinking. Currently his focus is on the importance of attention in teaching and learning mathematics; not only what is attended to, but how.

We are also delighted that Debbie Morgan, NCETM Primary Director, will be our second key note speaker.  She will be exploring Mastery in particular with reference to the transition from Key Stage 2 to 3, and how secondary schools will build on the mastery learning that primary pupils will have increasingly experienced.
