Maths Parent Workshop - May 2022
Mastery in Maths!
We would like to thank Robert Wilne for delivering an inspiring and engaging workshop focusing on teaching for mastery in maths. Robert talked parents through areas of the maths national curriculum and helped explain that what most schools need to focus on, as we do at Tetherdown, is problem-solving and mathematical reasoning. He took us through strategies and questions that parents can use at home to extend children’s thinking and deepen their application of skills, knowledge and understanding without simply presenting challenges using “bigger numbers.”
Feedback from our workshop (the first for parents in over two years) was incredibly positive with many sharing that they found the strategies and questions to ask the children particularly useful. The slides are now available for you to access in our Key Letters & Presentation area of the website.
Thank you to all those parents who attended this insightful maths workshop.
