Emmanuel Holcombe Maths progression of skills 

At Emmanuel Holcombe, we use Power Maths as a basis of our maths lesson. This is an exciting class mastery approach, which has been recommended by the DfE, that works for every child.  It is based upon the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. 

Every lesson is divided into sections that involve plenty of discovery, sharing, collaboration, practice and reflection. Children are encouraged to solve problems each day through the use of concrete resources, pictorial representations and abstract thinking.  

At the heart of this programme is the idea that all children can achieve and be successful mathematicians with the right growth mindset. 

Fluency

We encourage the children to learn certain mathematical facts.  This approach means that the children have a rapid recall of important mathematical facts and so can become more fluent and confident mathematicians.
