Mathematics in Early Years
Mastery Maths Approach
What is teaching for Mastery?
At Westwood Primary we understand the importance of gaining a deep understanding of maths and we feel our Mastery Maths offer allows us to ensure every child, regardless of starting points, can gain a deeper understanding of number concepts and mathematical thinking. This offer allows children to acquire a secure and memorable understanding of maths which gives them the foundations needed to move onto more complex topics as they progress through school.
We believe that every child is a ‘maths person’. Maths skills are essential for everyday life and for that reason it is essential that every child is confident in their mathematical thinking and reasoning.
“Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around them. Development is not an automatic process, however. It depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments.” -Development Matters 2012
