What Year 5 will be learning
What Y6 will be learning
Maths is an adventure for children (and adults) to immerse themselves in, get creative with, make mistakes, and conquer!
Power Maths is a whole-class mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and excitement and help nurture confidence in maths. Power Maths rejects the notion that some people simply ‘can’t do’ maths. Instead, it develops growth mindsets and encourages hard work, practice and a willingness to see mistakes as learning tools.
Power Maths and Mastery
To develop mastery in maths, children need to be enabled to acquire a deep understanding of maths concepts, structures and procedures, step by step. Complex mathematical concepts are built on simpler conceptual components and when children understand every step in the learning sequence, maths becomes transparent and makes logical sense. Interactive lessons establish deep understanding in small steps, as well as effortless fluency in key facts such as tables and number bonds. The whole class works on the same content and no child is left behind.
