Primary Mastery Specialist teacher wins award to help children build up a stronger ‘working memory’

A teacher from St George’s Primary School, Wirral, has won a SHINE award to help children retain what they have learnt.

Maria Chambers has been trained as a Primary Mastery Specialist by the NCETM and Maths Hubs, and in this role, works with neighbouring schools starting to introduce mastery in their maths teaching.

SHINE gives a number of annual awards of up to £15,000 to teachers, with the aim of raising the attainment of children from low income homes across the north of England.

Maria will use the money to develop classroom strategies that help children build up a stronger ‘working memory.’ These will include a range of games and activities to help children to retain what they have learnt. This will be part of a toolkit for teachers to track and assess the progression of pupils along their learning journey.

In summer 2018, another Mastery Specialist, Nicol Winfield, who teaches at a school in Derby, won a SHINE award to develop a programme to help primary school parents learn more about how maths is learnt by their children at school.

Many congratulations to Maria!
