Work Group Outline
These sessions are designed to develop student teacher’s understanding of a mastery approach to maths. All sessions will be delivered by experienced Primary Mastery Specialists. The four sessions will be delivered online and will include the opportunity to observe parts of mastery lessons.
SESSION 1: What does a Teaching for Mastery approach in mathematics mean?
Introduction to the five big ideas in teaching for mastery. What does mastery look like in the classroom? (probably very different to your school days!)
SESSION 2: Developing fluency in number facts
What facts should be taught when? Is it more important to be able to recall instantly or to calculate rapidly? Explore how to support children recall number facts quickly and efficiently and flexibly.
SESSIONS 3a and 3b: Laying the foundations for Mastery maths
One session, delivered in two parts – please attend both part A and part B. Early Years and Primary student teachers will develop an understanding of the foundations needed to support pupils become confident mathematicians. How do children naturally progress? How do I provide engaging mathematical experiences to secure good foundations for all our pupils.
Who can participate?
These sessions are aimed at both post-graduate and undergraduate students studying on any course leading to QTS with a focus on Early Years or Primary. They may also benefit newly-qualified or recently qualified teachers.
What is the cost?
The Working Partnerships with ITT Providers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating students and institutions.
