Curriculum Overview Mathematics
The Key Stage 3 schemes of work are based on a model of progression which results in five yearly schemes referred to as Stage 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. These are designed to be drawn upon as part of three different 11-14 pathways.
Features of the Key Stage 3 schemes of work include:
- Differentiated objectives with a focus on progression in the learning of mathematics.
- Explicit process objectives with suggested activities for teaching them.
- Tracking against two levels of progress based on APP assessment criteria.
- Full coverage of the 'lines of progression' in the renewed secondary framework.
- Support objectives based on the renewed primary framework where appropriate.
- References to a large amount of material available on www.kangaroomaths.com.
- Links to suitable activities from NRICH (a site updated every month with new activities based on a mathematical theme).
- References to suitable Standards Unit and NCETM resources.
The Key Stage 4 schemes of work build on the Key Stage 3 model to ensure genuine progression across the five years of the secondary phase. Consequently there are now seven yearly schemes referred to as Stage 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. These are designed to be drawn upon as part of three different 11-16 pathways (e.g. Level 4 to C+), and they can be found by clicking on the Stage in the table below:
