Maths at Hobbayne


We use the Pearson Power Maths scheme for teaching maths from Year 1 to Year 6 which follows the mastery approach to learning.

At the heart of Power Maths is the belief that all children can achieve. It is built around a child centred lesson design that models and embeds a growth mindset approach to maths.


Power Maths is structured around a whole class interactive teaching model that focuses on helping all children to build a deep understanding of maths concepts and confidence in maths.

For each year group the curriculum strands are broken down into core concepts. These are taught in blocks of lessons giving sufficient time to develop a deep and sustainable understanding of core maths concepts. Each concept is broken down into lessons. Each lesson and concept builds on prior knowledge to help children build a robust and deep understanding of the concept before moving on.

Opportunities are provided for same day intervention if necessary and also for deepening activities if pupils master the concept.


Each lesson is divided up into:

  • A Power Up activity designed to support fluency in all key number facts.

  • Discover and share activity where children can share, reason and learn.

  • Children then consider solutions as a class, with partners and independently.

  • Children then get the chance to practice the skills learnt to build fluency and develop deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Challenge questions link to other areas of maths and encourage children to take their understanding to a greater level of depth.

  • Children review, reason and reflect on learning.
