Primary Mastery Open Morning, Banbury

  • Mastery Open Morning, Hanwell Fields
    13 Jun 2019
    9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Mastering maths means acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject. At any one point in a pupil’s journey through school, achieving mastery is taken to mean acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that’s been taught to enable him/her move on to more advanced material.

Since mastery is what we want pupils to acquire (or go on acquiring), rather than teachers to exhibit, we use the phrase ‘teaching for mastery’ to describe the range of elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering mathematics.

We are offering an opportunity to observe a Maths lesson based on the Mastery Approach at Hanwell Fields Community School, Banbury.  The session will be led by our Primary Mastery Specialist, Caroline Tomlinson and will run from 9am -12 pm.

9.00 –  arrival coffee – share where each school is at in terms of mastery. Discussion of barriers (to come back to after taught session) 

10.15 – KS 2 maths mastery lesson observation 

11.00 – TFM style working group – what did you notice? 

11.45 – return to the initial discussion and next steps for individual schools. 

12.00 – close
