In KS1, we have recently introduced the Power of Maths. 

The Power of Maths is an exciting whole-class mastery approach which is fully aligned to the White Rose Maths progressions and schemes of learning.  It is written specifically for UK classrooms by leading mastery experts and is recommended by the DfE.
