SEND Resources


Plus 1 and Power of 2 Books

We have recently invested in new intervention resources called "Plus 1" and “Power of 2”. This is a Maths programme which teaches all of the mental maths properties.

"Plus 1" is a new resource aimed at KS1 pupils but this can be used by KS2 pupils as required. It covers the foundation and first steps of number.

“Power of 2” helps children to practice and reinforce the building blocks of number, and to develop skills for mental calculations which are transferred to the long term memory.

The programme is undertaken by one child at a time and for around 15 minutes each day. Children are required to learn and apply a new number skill before progressing onto the next step.

These resources can also be purchased at home if you wish to review number calculations with your child. They are both very straight forward books to use.
