Exciting news if you are a teacher looking for material to support the maths mastery programme in your school.
Great news for parents with children being taught using the maths mastery programme and are not sure how best to help.
Beginning with the Autumn Term for Years 1, 2 and 3 we have selected sets of worksheets from our extensive range which are ideal for use with each block of a typical maths mastery programme.
Our resources have been designed to work alongside the mastery planning, providing extra resources and support. They are not a scheme of work in themselves. Each term is divided into blocks of work so that children concentrate on one block of content for a considerable length of time until a secure understanding has been achieved.
For a teacher these are also superb resources to use with the children in your class who need a little extra help.
For a parent, we recommend doing the pages more or less in the order they appear, one page from each set. If this is completed well, with no problems, there is no reason to do more, unless, of course, your child really wants to.
If difficulties occur, we recommend trying at least one or two more out of the set, and there will be other similar sets that can also be used, taken from the main categories.
We cannot guarantee that the order we progress through the term will be the same as that of a particular school, but we are following similar blocks of work as used in many schools across the country.
Also, please note that these are support materials and cannot replace the work done in school through mastery programmes, maths hubs etc. For parents we feel one page a day, for 5 days a week, is ample without overloading your child.
Of course, if you are not following a maths mastery programme these are still great resources for your children.
