Maths Mastery approach
In mathematics we have been developing our and teaching based on a mastery approach. Our emphasis has been on using concrete, pictorial and abstract representations to help children understand key mathematical concepts more deeply. This approach also helps the children in each year group stay more together as they progress through the mathematics curriculum, whilst ensuring that those pupils with strong understanding are stretched through the deeper application of their learning in new and challenging contexts.
