Teaching for Maths Mastery at South Petherwin School
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 ...
Maths Support for Parents
1.  Playing Maths Games
As well as playing SUMDOG (please see your child's teacher for a login if you do not know this) there are plenty of maths games that are not computer based.  You can bring maths alive 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 maths skills
  • Darts
  • Dominoes
  • Snakes and Ladders
  • Monopoly
