Teaching for Mastery : What is Greater Depth

Event Information



United Kingdom

Event description



Teachers from a number of schools will work together to develop their understanding of how to facilitate activities and questions that provide opportunities for all children to work at greater depth than the expected standard, as and when they are ready for it, within a teaching for mastery context. Building on findings from the 2017-18 project, more schools are being offered the opportunity to explore what it means to work deeply in mathematics. Collaboratively, they will use existing tasks/questions and design their own, to ensure that pupils are not accelerated through the programmes of study but have a deep and sustainable knowledge of mathematics for their age.

Who is this for?

This would be ideal for schools that have previously engaged in Maths Hub teaching for mastery Work Groups or other activities and are beginning to make commitments to sustain this approach in their schools. It would be ideal for 2 teacher to come from your school (e.g. Maths Lead and 1 teacher)

What is involved?

  • Four workshops (One workshop will be observing the Shanghai Teachers at Warboys Primary) working with teachers from other schools in the Work Group to reflect on current practice, clarify understanding of what ‘greater depth’ looks like in maths lessons and design activities for working at greater depth.
  • Gap tasks to complete in school, integrated with and supported by the work done in the workshops.
