This page is a work in progress, we shall be providing a variety of activities and ideas for you to try, encouraging stretch and challenge.


Maths - NCETM

The links below contain a series of lessons and activities which are updated weekly. It is important that, they are completed in the suggested order. Most lessons are 15 to 20 minutes long, each ending with suggested follow-up tasks. All lessons exemplify a Teaching for Mastery approach to maths.

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’s been taught to enable pupils to move on to more advanced material. More information about Mastery and NCETM can be found here.

Further activities that support the Mastery approach can be found on the Nrich website.
