Maths.

At Daven primary school we have been teaching maths using the mastery approach for several years now. This year we have introduced a new maths scheme called Power Maths.

Power Maths is a UK curriculum mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and excitement and nurture confidence in maths.

  • Written specifically for UK curriculum classrooms by leading mastery experts from around the world and recommended by the UK’s Department for Education.
  • An enriched approach that cleverly combines interactive teaching tools, rich and quality textbooks, and practice books.
  • 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 is built on a world‑class and unique mastery teaching model created by leading educational experts from the UK and China. 

  • Power Maths Reception brings the core concepts of mastery to your littlest learners!

Don't forget all children have access to RM Easimaths. Please ask your child's teacher if you are unsure of their login details.

Assessment in Maths is done in several ways here at Daven.

Teachers assess during lessons through questionning and marking. This assessment informs future lessons and enables teachers to plan interventions as necessary. Power Maths provides end of unit checks (mini assessments). These show what the children have learnt during a particular topic. Standardised tests (NFER) are completed at the end of every term. This provides data in line with national standards and can be used to judge if a child is at the expected level for their age.

 

Useful videos for parents.
