Primary Mastery Open Morning, Marlow

  • Mastery Open Morning, Marlow
    6 Jun 2019
    9:00 am - 11:30 am

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 lesson based on the mastery approach at Burford Primary School, Marlow.  

Charlotte Babes, Mastery Specialist, will give an overview of mastery and the practicalities around implementation. Ian Garner, Headteacher, will give an insight from the Headteacher’s perspective and the impact on the School.
