At Grimes Dyke we teach Maths for Mastery following the Singapore model. This is an evidence-based approach, which helps children to develop a deep, long-term and adaptable understanding of mathematical concepts.
We have high expectations that all children can and will achieve. Pupils are taught through whole class teaching where they all work together on the same lesson content at the same time. Each topic is studied in depth and we aim for the teacher not move on to the next stage until all children demonstrate a secure understanding. Any children who fail to grasp a concept are identified early for intervention which will support them to move on with the whole class as soon as possible. Those pupils who grasp new content quickly, are challenged to gain deeper understanding of the topic.
The Department for Education (DfE) recognises that the use of good quality textbooks is critical for the successful implementation of a mastery approach to teaching maths and we use Maths - No Problem!, which is one of the two recommended schemes.
