Refining understanding of good lesson design, and being able to use resources well, is a crucial element in developing teaching for mastery. Teachers in this Work Group will work together to plan exemplar lessons (drawing on new Mastery Professional Development materials produced by NCETM/Maths Hubs and
other sources of mastery resources for the classroom including textbooks) and in so doing will improve lesson design across their school. The project will also make use of the planning guidance created in previous projects to update and extend it, and it will be informed by the work of the 'Planning Opportunities for Greater Depth' project in 2017/18 and 2018/19.

There will be 2 separate Work Groups, one based in Lincolnshire and one in Nottinghamshire.


Schools that have made a significant commitment to Teaching for Mastery in their curriculum planning are invited to nominate two teachers for the Work Group. One of these should be in a middle or senior leadership role (ideally the Maths Lead) with experience and expertise in teaching for mastery. It will also be suitable for schools that have taken up textbook match funding and are looking for support with good use of the new resources.


One day per term meeting with all the other schools in your Work Group.
One further day per term, meeting with two teachers from another school in the Work Group to enable joint planning and observation of each other’s lessons. with a focus particularly on the small steps required in teaching for mastery.
