Thanks Miss Hill and Mrs Rinvolucri… and thanks to everyone who came to our ‘Mastery in Maths’ evening…

Everyone can be good at maths.

Encouraging a Growth Mindset in maths…

  1. Praise effort not achievement.
  2. Promote challenge and see mistakes as  valuable.
    Easy = a waste of time!

  3. Remove fixed ability messages in class
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new"

Anyone who has never made a mistake
has never tried anything new”

What does a Mastery Curriculum look like in the classroom?

Mastery Curriculum?

  • Lots of talking about the maths
  • Children getting different explanations – not just the teacher’s
  • Using equipment and pictures to explain their ideas
  • Children confident enough to continue to ask for
  •   clarification – however long it takes!
  • Deeper understanding using the hexagon model
  • Low threshold/high ceiling tasks which involve challenge
  • Mistakes and struggle become a part of learning
  • More ways to succeed in maths – more children feel successful
