Staff Meetings: school-wide maths training
These downloadable, adaptable materials provide everything you need to run staff meetings based on Ruth Merttens' maths mastery training. Hamilton recommend that a senior maths teacher or an experienced maths teacher run these sessions using the background information, the PowerPoint slides and the activity sheets below to ensure that you have a whole-school approach to teaching mastery of age-related expectations in maths.
Develop a consistent approach to models and images, layout and 'patter' across your school to facilitate children's progression towards maths mastery from year to year.
