At Boughton Leigh Infant School we have a mastery approach to teaching Maths with the help of Mathematics Mastery, a professional development programme for teachers.
Maths Meetings are a vital part of our maths teaching and are used to consolidate key learning. Each Maths Meeting lasts between 5 and 15 minutes and they happen regularly throughout the week. Each year group in school from Nursery to Year 2 participate in Maths Meetings.
Maths Meetings provide an opportunity to teach and revise 'general knowledge maths' which may not explicitly be covered during the maths lessons that week, such as telling the time, and also allows the daily integration of maths into the surrounding environment. This means that children are practising concepts and skills on a regular basis, meaning they are continually building on their mastery of these concepts.
