A Mastery Approach - guide for parents

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

At Booth Wood, we adopt a mastery approach to teaching mathematics. Our maths scheme, Power Maths, provides comprehensive, detailed lessons which encourage a deep understanding of mathematics. Children use concrete items and pictorial representations to develop and prove their understanding. Problem solving is included in every lesson, lessons follow on from previous skills and all children are given the opportunity to access the same work (with additional support if necessary). Growth mindset is valuable to the approach with every child considered a mathematician with no one viewed as 'can't do maths'.
