Here are our sample schemes of work. There’s a long story behind the development of these and how the approaches within have been instrumental in allowing us to dramatically improve teaching, learning and progress in the schools in which we have worked. That’ll have to wait though. For now, each one includes a Maths calendar, example unit and outline units for the whole year.
Joining KM Online gives access to the full versions, along with a wealth of teaching and assessment resources.
Here’s what you really need to know:
- The stage 7 to stage 11 schemes of work are based on the GCSE subject content and assessment objectives.
- We’ve broken this down into a plan for Years 7 to 11, creating units of work that are named similarly across the stages – some with interesting names
- Each unit of work is based around Key Learning Points – the fundamental basis of all related resources that subscribers get access to.
- For students entering secondary school below the ‘expected level’ at the end of Year 6, we have also produced two secondary schemes of work based on Years 5 and 6 of the primary national curriculum.
- And yes, we have decided to use the word ‘stage’ to organise these pathways. We chose this as it is the language used in the National Curriculum extract at the bottom of the page. This also explains why there is no third ‘extension’ pathway in this table.
“The expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace. However, decisions about when to progress should always be based on the security of pupils’ understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly should be challenged through being offered rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material should consolidate their understanding, including through additional practice, before moving on.”
