Everybody CAN do maths. There is no such thing as CAN’T do maths. We also believe that our curriculum is for all. In our lessons, we will aim to set tasks that are accessible for all. Within these tasks, learners will be encouraged to investigate and develop a deeper understanding.
The focus at KS3 is to ensure that all individuals are not only confident and positive mathematicians, but also enjoy and explore the subject through a variety of engaging tasks.
Our scheme of work is divided into five main topic areas, these are:-
Using and Applying Maths Shape and Space Ratio and Proportion
Number and Algebra Data Handling
The work on each of the five areas is spread out over the years. The first area, Using and Applying Maths is a general theme, which is integrated into the rest of our work.
In some lessons, the whole class will be working on the same activity. These are always designed so that all students can cope with the basic activity and further, more demanding work will be available for the more able students. We thus make every effort to deal with each child as an individual. Support for the least able includes close liaison with the Learning Support Department and a variety of other materials which are available to support the main scheme.
