A Year 3 lesson on multiplication

This set of video clips is centred on one lesson, focusing on the 6-times-table, in a Year 3 class at Two Mile Ash School, a large (six form entry) junior school in Milton Keynes. The school is one of 47 primary schools leading teaching for mastery work in the England-China project within the Maths Hubs programme.

The maths subject leader in the school visited Shanghai in September 2014, and in November 2014, two teachers from Shanghai spent three weeks in the school teaching mathematics to Year 3. Since then, the school has been keen to put into practice what they have learnt and develop a teaching for mastery approach to mathematics lessons.

We strongly recommend that, while watching the videos, you refer to this set of slides used by the teacher during the lesson and this practice sheet given to the pupils.
