Maths Mastery

You will find below some maths 'mastery sheets'. These are just additional activities, if you feel that your child needs some extra practise to secure their understanding, is eager to do another activity, or requires a more challenging activity. Under no circumstances, do I expect children to complete the normal, daily activity sheet set and all of these mastery sheets (of which there are several to give choice and differentiation). This could exhaust children and may have an adverse effect of 'putting them off' mathematics  for life! They are there to dip into, for perhaps one additional activity if your child requires them. 

Different mastery activities have already been written into the daily mathematics activity sheets. You will see these in the way questions are presented in varying formats, to encourage your child to problem solve, using the skills they have acquired.

What does 'mastery' mean in mathematics?

Mastering maths means pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject. The phrase 'teaching for mastery' describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths. 

Achieving mastery means acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that has been taught to enable pupils to move onto more advanced material.
