At Somerville, mastery is an approach where all children can achieve at a high standard in mathematics. It is important that children are given the opportunities and challenges to deepen their understanding of a concept rather than being introduced to new content prematurely.
Fluency, reasoning and problem solving are integral to our teaching and learning approach so that pupils are able to apply their understanding into new and unfamiliar situations. Maths Mastery at Somerville means a deep, long term, secure and contextual understanding of the subject so that our children are equipped to apply their facts, procedures and concepts at all stages in their life.
