The last 2 years have seen changes in the way we approach and teach Maths at Forest Fields Primary & Nursery School. We now follow the mastery approach.
'Mastery is based on the idea of children not moving on until they are secure in their understanding of a particular concept. The whole class is taught the same thing, at the same time, with children learning at an appropriate level through support and enrichment. Challenge is offered through higher order questioning and activities that develop deeper understanding, problem solving and reasoning skills.'
Through this page on our website we will keep you up to date with our Journey and continued development, as well as post useful information that could help you when working with your child at home.
We have 2 subject Leads in post, Mrs Bhattacharjee (KS1) and Mr Edwards (KS2) who are leading the way and helping to develop the teaching and learning in Maths across the school.
