A Brief Introduction To The Mathematics Curriculum • We follow the National Curriculum for England • The Curriculum sets out the Knowledge, Skills and Understanding that students need. • This is laid out in the Primary framework for Literacy and Mathematics (2006)
Learning Objectives • The Learning Objectives, around which teachers plan, according to student needs, are arranged in to 7 strands. • • • • • • • Using and applying Mathematics Counting and Understanding Number Knowledge and using Number Facts Calculating Understanding Shape Measures Handling Data
Block Breakdown Block A Counting, partitioning and calculating Using and applying mathematics Block B Securing number facts, understanding shape Using and applying mathematics Block C Handling data and measures Using and applying mathematics Block D Calculating, measuring and understanding shape Using and applying mathematics Block E Securing number facts, relationships and calculating Using and applying mathematics Counting and understanding number Calculating Knowing and using number facts Understanding shape Measuring Handling data Calculating Measuring Understanding shape Counting and understanding number Knowing and using number facts Calculating
Effective Learning For Learning to be Effective, Teaching and Learning Must: • • • • • • • • Build on prior learning and experiences Relate to real life Provide appropriate challenge Engage students in the learning Be reviewed and revisited periodically Be used and applied in a variety of situations Allow opportunities for discussion and experimentation Encourage students to rethink and restructure ideas
Is this what you remember from your Maths lessons?
Key stage 1 – Years 1 & 2 Key Points • A solid foundation is important on which to build • Expectations and activities must be developmentally appropriate • Students need to be successful and enjoy Maths – they also need challenge • Students should see value in their work • Not all students will progress at the same rate – progress will not be constant • Not all students are ready for written calculation methods
Standard Written Calculation Methods • Students will develop their written calculations as they develop through Primary school. Let’s not be in too much of a hurry. • First they need to be able to understand basic mathematical ideas and concepts • Look at the Core Mathematical objectives for Years 1 and 2 in Strand 4- Calculating. Where do you see the first reference to written methods? Standard written methods should only be introduced when a child has a secure knowledge and understanding of the process involved and can clearly explain the strategies they have used.
Skills at this Stage Pre Calculation Essential Skills and Understandings. • • • • • • • • • • • Say and use number names (know that a number name identifies the number of objects) Counting – 1 to 1 Recognise and write numerals Count on and back Estimating a small group of objects Use more than and less than Find I more and I less Compare and order numbers Grouping Sorting
