Maths workshops Primary (Years 3 & 4)

Maths Workshops - Year 3 & 4 primary teachers

Join our series of primary collaborative working party meetings

Where is the root of the problem in maths?

Could it be in the complex transition from to Year 3?

These meetings will primarily focus on calculation progression and the understanding of place value. They are designed to support identification of starting points in maths and planning from where the child is currently working, to ensure progress in subsequent years.



We warmly welcome a diverse group of Year 3 & 4 teachers:

  • If you are new to teaching year 3 or 4, join us to build your confidence in teaching maths and bridging the jump between KS1 and lower KS2.
  • If you have years of successful teaching experience through the KS1 to lower KS2 transition, come and share your experience and gain some alternative approaches.



Join us to work collaboratively to:

  • unpick the problematic areas in this challenging teaching stage, using concrete, pictorial and abstract concepts and resources
  • create practical solutions to instantly apply to your teaching to promote secure foundations in maths, in which to build upon in subsequent years, to ensure mathematical success

  • explore how to use mathematically-rich problems as starting points

  • share successful ideas, models, practices with other teachers
