Both Mrs Foster and Mrs Roberts are being trained as ‘Teaching for Mastery’ maths teachers. This is a hugely successful approach to teaching and delivering maths to children. It originated in China, which as a country has the worlds most successful mathematicians. It is still being developed across the UK, and we are very excited to be part of this project.
The maths that the children will see in these classrooms may look a little different to what they are used to. It does not require pages and pages of repeating sums, but to understand why they are doing it, what they know about it, how to explain the reasoning and how they can use that knowledge in other areas of mathematics.
If you have any queries that you want to discuss with either teacher please let them know.
