What is 'Mastery' in maths at Sudbourne?

The new maths curriculum encourages children to master maths ideas.  This ensures a deeper and sustainable understanding of maths concepts which enable them to apply their knowledge appropriately, flexibly and creatively to new and unfamiliar situations.

When a child has mastered an area of maths they will be able to:

Problem solve! Children can use their maths to solve real problems.

Prove and justify it! Children can explain why their answers make sense.

Manipulate it! Children can demonstrate their understanding in a variety of ways.

Teach it! Children can teach what they have learnt to someone else.

Link and apply it! Children can identify patterns, relationships and make connections within and outside of maths.

Say it! Children can use high order maths vocabulary to explain their thinking and strategies.
