Maths

Curriculum Intent

Our aim is to develop the students’ ability to confidently and independently solve problems in Maths.  This approach will allow them to apply logic and analytical methods to develop their passion and understanding of numeracy, enabling them to be confident and self-assured when dealing with numbers both in the classroom and out in the real world.  Through high quality teaching, students will become independent and resilient in solving problems and develop academically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.

 

Year 7 Curriculum

Year 7 students follow the White Rose scheme of work, orientated around Maths mastery. Students are encouraged to fully understand concepts before progressing further in their development. Mathematical understanding is embedded through pictorial and concrete examples and pupils regularly asked to explain how they formulated their answers. All students are assessed at the end of each topic and are given opportunities to reflect on their understanding and make improvements through re-assessments. Students are set weekly homework on MathsWatch to consolidate understanding, identify gaps and address any misconceptions they may have.

Year 8 Curriculum

Year 8 students continue to follow the White Rose scheme of work orientated around Maths mastery. Students are given the opportunity to consolidate their understanding and build upon their mathematical foundations. Topics taught throughout Year 8 overlap with those taught in Year 7 emphasising the importance of retaining and remembering key mathematical concepts. All students are assessed at the end of each topic and are given opportunities to reflect on their understanding and make improvements through re-assessments. Students are set weekly homework on MathsWatch to consolidate understanding, identify gaps and address any misconceptions they may have.

Year 9 Curriculum

Year 9 sets out to expand on the previous ideas taught in Year 7 and 8 and develop students’ understanding further. All students will be regularly assessed over the course of the year with opportunities for reteach and re-assessment.  Students have weekly homework set on Mathswatch to consolidate learning, identify gaps and address any misconceptions along the way.

Year 10 Curriculum

When a student moves into Year 10, we build on the KS3 foundation years to prepare students for their GCSE in Year 11.  Functional elements and reasoning have been embedded in the course to ensure that students have the skills they need to use Mathematics in real life contexts. We focus on teaching the AO1 concepts through fluency and variation, whilst giving pupils exposure to rich problem solving and reasoning tasks so that this knowledge can be applied. Students will study number, algebra, ratio, proportion and rates of change, geometry and measures, probability and statistics. This involves many problem-solving challenges where students first learn the new mathematical skills and then how to apply that skill. Students have weekly homework set on Mathswatch to consolidate learning, identify gaps and address any misconceptions along the way.
