At Rednal Hill Junior School we teach for mastery, equipping children with the skills of fluency, reasoning and problem solving that they need in life beyond school. Pupils across a year group will usually move through the programmes of study at the same pace. There are opportunities for deepening understanding for rapid graspers and scaffolds to support struggling learners. Conceptual understanding is taught in tandem with procedural fluency in order to deepen mathematical thinking. Children will then apply their understanding through real life problem solving activities.
At RHJS we have been working very closely with the Central Maths Hub and the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) to move our teaching practices forwards. We ran workshops during last year to explain the changes to parents, but if you were unable to attend, the key elements of mastery are set out below;
