At KPIA we want to provide children with the best possible education and Maths is a fundamental part of that. We follow the Power Maths programme, which is used to aid children's development and foster a mastery understanding of mathematical process.
Power Maths is a UK curriculum mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and excitement, as well as nurture confidence in maths. It is built around a child‑centred lesson design that models and embeds a growth mind set approach to maths and focuses on helping all children to build a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.
Alongside Power Maths, other maths sessions are completed to build up children’s mathematical fluency and mental calculation. Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots is used throughout the school to support children with learning their number bonds and times tables. Children also have access to this at home via a login.
In our Early Years provision, as well as following Power Maths, children are also taught through ‘Ten Town’ which is a valuable maths resource, helping to embed a deep understanding of numbers up to 10. This includes number recognition, counting as well as place value. It helps to engage children and really captures their imagination.
