At CBINs an important aspect of our teaching for mastery approach is the daily timetabled maths meetings we deliver.  Maths meetings allow all pupils to develop a deep understanding of essential mathematical concepts by having regular practise of key skills and help to fill any gaps in pupils’ understanding of mental arithmetic, and revise basic skills. Pupils consolidate learning outside of the core maths lesson in a fun way and practise applying their knowledge and skills on a regular basis, helping to continually build on their mastery of key concepts. The goal for maths meetings is to provide crucial additional support for pupils to: support them in areas of the curriculum where they may have forgotten key maths concepts, consolidate learning and help highlight areas where pupils may have any misconceptions, provide extra time in the day for maths and an opportunity to revisit and practise key skills necessary for their mathematical progression.
