KEY STAGE 3
At Key Stage 3 students study the full range of the maths curriculum strands; number, geometry, ratio & proportion, algebra and statistics in line with the national curriculum and they have opportunities to solve problems and explain their reasoning. “Do now” resources are used for retrieval practice at the start of every lesson. By the end of Year 9, through our cyclic curriculum, we intend to equip students with the mathematical knowledge required as a solid foundation for GCSE. They also have the chance to develop skills to decode questions, model situations with diagrams and explain their rationale. Independent working time is built in to lessons to improve the mathematical fluency of our students.
