'Learning Together, Being Our Best'

Belle Vale Primary School will re-open on Monday 8th March 2021 to all children. For further information and guidance, please refer to the news and events section on the website.

Power Maths

Power Maths is a UK curriculum mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and excitement and nurture confidence in maths. It is built around a child‑centred lesson design that models and embeds a growth mindset approach to maths and focuses on helping all children to build a deep understanding of maths concepts.

 

Power Maths KS1 and KS2 are recommended by the DfE, having met the NCETM’s criteria for high-quality textbooks, and have been judged as “fully delivering a mastery approach”.

Power Maths lessons are split into 5 parts:-

 

Discover

Every lesson starts with a Discover task to get children to solve a problem that aims to generate curiosity. During the Discover section children may use manipulatives to help them understand the maths and explain their method.

Share

The next stage encourages children to Share the methods they have tried to solve the problem in Discover.

Think Together

We only learn when we are thinking! In this section Power Maths takes the approach “I do, we do, you do”, as children apply the knowledge they have just learned in a series of problems that continue to encourage thinking throughout.

Practice

Children are then ready for some independent practice in their workbooks.

Reflect

The final Reflect question helps the children evaluate whether they have understood the key concept and small step that they have been trying to master in the lesson.
