At Sandilands Community Primary School, we have embedded a mastery approach to the teaching and learning of Mathematics.
This approach is evidence-based. It helps pupils to develop a deep, long-term and adaptable understanding of maths. It is an inclusive approach where the majority of pupils will move together at broadly the same pace; pupils who grasp concepts rapidly are challenged through rich and sophisticated challenges and those who are less secure consolidate their understanding before moving on.
This approach has since been implemented at Sandilands through the use of Maths No Problem textbooks and workbooks, which are fully aligned with the aims of our National Curriculum.
These aims are to ensure that all pupils;
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
