Welcome to the Maths page
Maths mastery is a teaching and learning approach that aims for pupils to develop deep understanding of maths rather than being able to memorise key procedures or resort to rote learning.
The end goal and expectation is for all pupils (with very limited exceptions) to have acquired the fundamental facts and concepts of maths for their year or key stage such that by the end of it they have achieved mastery in the maths they have been taught. At this point they are ready to move confidently on to their next stage of maths.
Mastery of a mathematical concept means a child can use their knowledge of the concept to solve unfamiliar word problems, and undertake complex reasoning, using the appropriate .
Maths mastery is a not a quick fix to maths learning but a journey that the teacher and pupils go on together, with regular diagnostic assessment to check the pupils understanding and direct instruction that teaches to any gaps.

Problem Solving activities
NRich, a problem solving site, display 'live problems' on their website. These 'live problems' are changed approximately every 6 weeks.
Children are encouraged to have a go at the problem and submit their answers/solutions. These solutions are then looked at and a handful of them are published for other Primary School children to see.
Have a go at the following problems! You never know, your solution may well be published!
