The Teaching of Mathematics at Meadow
Teachers at Meadow Primary have been developing a mastery approach since 2015. Inspired by the exceptional performance of some Southeast Asian Countries, our involvement with our local Maths Hub and the fact that the maths curriculum is a mastery curriculum, school staff accessed top quality training from Deep Learning TSA on how to implement mastery teaching using the high quality textbook ‘Maths No Problem’. The approach, using both the pedagogy and textbook, has since been implemented at Meadow Primary.
During maths lessons, you will see a high level of interaction, exploratory learning and engagement.

An example of the Singapore approach can be viewed in this video.
Additional tools to support the learning of mathematics
At Meadow, we provide our pupils with a range of additional tools to support the learning of maths outside of formal curriculum lessons. Some of these are shown below.
An interactive, intuitive platform that responds to children's individual needs.
