Power Maths

 What is Power Maths? 

  • Power Maths is a whole-class mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and help nurture confidence in maths.
  •  It has been recommended by the DfE, as a KS1 and KS2 textbook programme judged as, 'fully delivering a mastery approach.'
  • The structured approach, which uses textbooks, practice books and online videos, is the only mastery programme created in partnership with White Rose Maths, making it the perfect partner to deliver Maths Mastery teaching.  

 

Assessment

  • We assess children regularly using the National Curriculum Skills progression document - on the Curriculum Implementation page
  • We put interventions in place where children aren't meeting year group expectations, in consultation with parents/carers.
  • We use Times Tables tests when a child is in Key Stage 2, to assess their recall and knowledge of related multiplication and division facts. This allows us to track a child's progress in their Times Tables. 
  • We test children termly using the NFER Mathematics test in Year 2-6, which provides a standardised score and allow us to track children's progress and adapt our teaching to 'diminish gaps' to ensure children make further progress.
