In Key Stage 3 we follow a bespoke scheme of work designed by the Middle School Alliance, which fuses both the excellent schemes of work from White Rose Maths Hub and Kangeroo Maths.
Teaching for Mastery
These schemes of learning are designed to support a mastery approach to teaching and learning and have been designed to support the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.
The schemes of learning;
have number at their heart. A large proportion of time in Year 7 is spent reinforcing number to build competency. Key number skills are then fed through the rest of the scheme so that students become more and more fluent.
give teachers ideas for how to extend higher attaining students through depth rather than acceleration onto new content.
ensure students have the opportunity to stay together as they work through the schemes as a whole group
provide plenty of time to build reasoning and problem solving elements into the curriculum.
