At Goose Green we are working towards a Mastery approach in the way teach Maths. This includes:

  • Inclusivity of all pupils, including those with special educational needs
  • Children acquiring skills (as opposed to the teacher exhibiting or teaching a formula) that will develop a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.
  • Use of concrete and pictorial representations to build on a child’s existing understanding and provide a framework to support progression onto abstract frameworks like fractions.
  • Balancing instant recall with reasoning skills.
  • Teaching a topic of Maths over a longer period taking small steps
