Open Mastery Classroom

Primary Open Classroom Event – Tameside

An open classroom session will be provided by one of our Primary Mastery Specialist teachers. This is a very exciting opportunity to see a live lesson demonstrating the core skills and attributes of mastery teaching.

Target Audience

We are inviting schools within Tameside to send members of staff to participate in this event. Ideally one of these members of staff needs to be a senior leader or the Maths Lead within school.

The lesson will be followed by a discussion and feedback therefore the full morning needs to be attended.
