Year 7: During this lockdown period, the Year 7 Maths topics remain the same as per the White Rose Scheme of work which we are using. An interactive Scheme of Learning can be found by clicking here then clicking on the appropriate year group.

SWE Website Y7

Where classes are shared, the topics are split between each teachers.

Class 7a – Mr Webb has taught Solving Problems with Addition and Subtraction. Miss Nissa is teaching Solving Problems with Multiplication and Division. Mr Webb is currently teaching Fractions Decimals and Percentages.

Class 7b – Miss Nissa and Mrs Lloyd have split the topics so Miss Nissa is teaching content from weeks 1 to 6, Mrs Lloyd is teaching from weeks 7 to 12.

Topics are being delivered by a blend of live remote lessons (teacher teaching vie Microsoft Teams) and asynchronous content such as www.heagartymaths.com, shared presentations and worksheets, teacher made videos and https://vle.mathswatch.co.uk/vle/ .

Please do use your childs login for Hegarty and Mathswatch to check they are up to date and gauge their effort.

Assessment will include:

·  Solving problems with:

  • addition, subtraction
  • multiplication and division

·  Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Year 8: During this lockdown period, the Year 8 Maths topics remain the same as per the White Rose Scheme of work which we are using. An interactive Scheme of Learning can be found by clicking here then clicking on the appropriate year group tab (as highlighted below).

SWE Website Y8

Topics for this term are: -

  • Brackets (expanding, factorising, problem solving)
  • Equations (including equations with brackets)
  • Inequalities (solving, representing on number lines)

These topics will be tested in next week’s tests.

Topics are being delivered by a blend of live remote lessons (teacher teaching vie Microsoft Teams) and asynchronous content such as www.heagartymaths.com, shared presentations and worksheets, teacher made videos and https://vle.mathswatch.co.uk/vle/ .

Year 9: During this lockdown period, we have had to amend the scheme of learning significantly because the topics require equipment and resources that are not readily available at home and do not lend themselves so well to remote learning. For this reason, we have postponed transformation and constructions to whenever pupils return to school and have bought forward statistics and probability. We will also bring number, standard form and surds.

SWE Website Y9

Some of the statistics content has also been postponed to when pupils return – this is due to the resources needed and because it is best practiced on printed questions. Topics include frequency polygons and scatter graphs.

SWE Website Y9 (3)

Topics for this term are: -

  • Probability
  • Statistics
  • Number, standard form and surds (may be covered in the final week of Half Term 3)

For Class 9a – Mr Webb will teach all the content.

9b is shared by  Mrs Lloyd. Mrs Lloyd is teaching probability and  teaching statistics.

Probability and statistics topics will be assessed in next week’s tests.

Topics are being delivered by a blend of live remote lessons (teacher teaching vie Microsoft Teams) and asynchronous content such as www.heagartymaths.com, shared presentations and worksheets, teacher made videos and https://vle.mathswatch.co.uk/vle/ .

Key Stage 4

Year 10: Few modifications are needed for the Year 10 Scheme of Learning. This is because most topics do not require resources which are only available at school.

SWE Website Y10

In January, Sequences (linear sequences, nth term, geometric progressions, Fibonacci) were and Area (use of formulae for are of quadrilaterals including trapezium, total surface area of prisms, cones, spheres and pyramids) were recapped. Work on graphs is limited to on screen work – plotting graphs is better suited in the classroom with printed resources, therefore this will be recapped again when pupils return. Angle geometry is being recapped but any construction geometry will be postponed to when the pupils return.

Topics are being delivered by a blend of live remote lessons (teacher teaching vie Microsoft Teams) and asynchronous content such as www.heagartymaths.com, shared presentations and worksheets, teacher made videos and https://vle.mathswatch.co.uk/vle/ .

Year 11: During January, Year 11 have been focusing on topics that have been identified by diagnostically analysis of the December Mock GCSE Papers.

Topics are being delivered by a blend of live remote lessons (teacher teaching vie Microsoft Teams) and asynchronous content such as www.heagartymaths.com, shared presentations and worksheets, teacher made videos and https://vle.mathswatch.co.uk/vle/ and Oak Academy https://www.thenational.academy/ .

Following the Mock and the recent parents' evening, some pupils in the group are taking a Foundation paper, this will allow us (pupil, parent, and teacher) to make an informed decision on the tier those pupils will be concentrating on.

Both Foundation and Higher work will be set in each lesson from Feb 1st.

For 11A these are:

  • Probability
  • Arcs & Sectors
  • Plans & Elevations
  • Set Notation
  • Product of primes
  • HCF & LCM
  • Statistics:- Averages & Range, Averages from tables and Estimated Mean
  • Direct/Indirect Proportion
  • Angle Facts: Parallel lines, interior & exterior angles in polygons
  • Problem solving
  • Number assessment (Identify individual need)

Practice papers have also been provided.

Graphs and Transformation will be recapped on returning to school.

For 11B these are:

Sequences (geometric, linear)

  • Similar shapes and ratio
  • Standard form
  • Equations, identities, formulae
  • Angle facts (parallel lines and polygons)
  • Fraction, decimal and Percentage equivalence.

Transformations was also identified but will be recapped when pupils return to school.

 Over February and March we will be teaching:

  • Quadratics (expanding, factorising, solving quadratic equations)
  • Graphs – linear, quadratic, proportional
  • Proportion and ratio
  • Transformations and vectors
  • Trigonometry and Pythagoras
