In February 2019, we introduced a new mastery led mathematics curriculum at Roby Park. Power Maths is a whole-class mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and excitement and helps teachers to nurture confidence in Maths. It is developed alongside a group of teachers to ensure Power Maths meets all the needs of children. As well as Power Maths, we have set aside a time of the day to focus on fluency and the teaching of key number facts including number bonds, times tables, doubling, halving etc.

Mathematics is central to learning. Our children lives are full of numbers. Mathematics also helps them to achieve well in other subjects such as science, computing, history and geography. It is vital to how our children learn and live.
The aim of our curriculum is to ensure that our children master their understanding of Mathematics at their age related expectations.
At Roby Park, we aim to develop children who:
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including the varied and regular practice of increasingly complex problems over time.
- Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, understanding relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
- Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

NSPCC Number Day 2024
We are raising money for NSPCC. We will be collecting £1 donations and children can wear clothes with numbers on or patterns. We will also be hosting a small cake sale after school, on the main playground18
Y2 loved finding efficient ways of adding 2 digit & 1 digit numbers. One child said, “When I was using the tens frames I noticed that I can use number bonds to 10 to help work out 18+5. It was quick & is now 1 of my favourite methods.”💡 #RPMaths22
In maths this week we have been comparing amounts using the vocabulary more and fewer. We had a dilemma while making our fruit skewers, there wasn’t enough of each item for everyone. We compared amounts and even did some great subitising. #RPMaths27
We have also been comparing different sized pumpkins!
We have also been comparing different sized pumpkins! We found a big, medium and small pumpkin. We talked about the different sizes and put them in order. Well done, Nursery! 🎃 #RPMaths #RPEYFS21
Today we have been creating some spooky pizzas.
Today we have been creating some spooky pizzas. We practised our counting 1-5 using spiders. The children had great fun! 🕷️🕸️ #RPMaths #RPEYFS20
Developing our addition and subtraction skills ➕➖
During maths, we used place value grids and counters to develop our addition and subtraction skills of four digit numbers ➕➖#RPMaths #PowerMaths16
Rounding numbers to the nearest 100,000
Year 5 have recently been using number lines to develop our understanding of rounding numbers to the nearest 100,000.#RPMaths @WhiteRoseEd @Pearson_UK16
Most importantly Year 2 find these approaches fun & engaging
Research from @EducEndowFoundn shows that collaborative learning has a big impact on children’s progress. Most importantly Year 2 find these approaches fun & engaging. Here are some of our class working collaboratively to solve place value problems in maths @pearson #powermaths15
