Power Up

Each Power Maths lesson starts with a whole-class ‘Power Up!’ activity, designed to support fluency in all key number facts.

 

 

 

 

Discover

Hands-on problems spark curiosity and provide opportunities for deeper questioning.

Children share, reason and learn from misconceptions through whole-class discussion.

Teachers encourage children to work with concrete objects to support their understanding.

 

                                                                     

     

 

Think Together

 

This section of the lesson allows children to explore new problems using the mathematical strategies they have learnt from the ‘Share’ section.

At this point, scaffolding is carefully reduced to prepare children for independent practice. Children consider solutions as a class, with partners and independently.

 

 

Practice

The children then work independently to apply the skills learned in the first parts of the lesson.

The questions in the practice book follow small steps of progression in order to deepen their learning.

 

 

 

Reflect

This is an opportunity for children to review, reason, and reflect on learning and to help teachers to gauge the children’s depth of understanding.
