National Strategies Secondary Maths Collection – Planning Lessons and Schemes of Work
Collection Author: Craig Barton - Maths AST and creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com (TES Name: mrbartonmaths)
The National Strategy website contains lots of resources to help with planning, both in terms of lessons and schemes of work. These resources are the best of the bunch, with my particular favourites being the Key Stage 3 and 4 handbooks.
- This resource gives an overview of the whole program of study for Key Stage 3 and 4 mathematics, as well as detailed descriptions of each of the learning objectives, broken down into years and also topic areas.
- The Framework provides sets of objectives to help teachers to plan for progression. They are based on the National Curriculum programme of study for the key stage.
- Teaching calendar templates to help plan Key Stage 3 and 4 mathematics. This resource is aimed at mathematics departments in secondary schools and includes separate sections for each year, and for the autumn, spring and summer terms.
- Guidance for planning by showing the links between the strands of mathematics as an interconnected set of ideas.
