A Teaching For Mastery Approach 


At Griffin Park, mathematics is fun, engaging and encourages curiosity. Through the ability to reason, solve problems, make links, see patterns and calculate our children make sense of the world around them. 


The aims of the 2014 National curriculum are for pupils to:


  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time. So that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. 
  • Reason mathematically  by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations and developing an argument, justification or proof  using mathematical language.
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
