Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve welcomed around 30 teachers and deputy head teachers from schools across Leeds wanting to find out more about our approach to maths: teaching for mastery. As well as hearing about our approach there were opportunities to observe lessons in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 in our school. We’ve received some fantastic feedback.
- ‘Seeing the lesson was invaluable. I’ve learnt so much that I can’t wait to apply in my own classroom.’ (Leeds teacher)
- ‘I loved observing the lessons this morning, seeing how mastery looks in a school where it’s really embedded. Thank you, Scholes.’ (Leeds deputy headteacher)
- ‘Just wanted to give you some feedback from my staff. They absolutely loved the session! In particular, seeing the lessons and reflecting on their own practice. Thank you.’ (Leeds headteacher)
- ‘Thanks again for another brilliant morning. All the delegates loved it. Can I say a huge thank you to you and your school.’ (West Yorkshire Maths Hub specialist teacher)
Our children were brilliant, not at all fazed by large groups of teachers observing them learn. We’re very proud of them.
