Teaching for Mastery at Muscliff
In order to achieve 'mastery' we teach maths using the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach, underpinned by Bar Modelling.
This means you'll see lots of practical resources being used to support and deepen knowledge in every classroom. Have a look at what this means...
Playing Maths Games
Have you seen our list of online games and activities that your child can enjoy wherever they have Internet access? You can access it via the link below...
Maths games don't have to be computer-based, though. There are lots of ways in which you can bring maths to life for your child through simple games and activities. Whether out shopping, using the context of money to help develop your child's skills, or helping them to better understand measurement when baking or putting together the new rabbit's hutch, there's always an opportunity for a 'maths moment'!
Board games can be great for developing a child's maths skills too! Playing these can be a really powerful way for young children to become comfortable with our number system, spotting patterns and literally playing with numbers.
Some of our favourite board games (and others) are shown below...
Dice are an amazing way to bring numbers to life, and can be used in so many creative ways to have fun... and learn at the same time!
Check out the MPS list of number games and make the most of dice at home too!
