In KS3, students are learning to improve their thinking and problem solving skills through investigations and embedding of key skills. Throughout KS3, students will be studying the following topics:
Algebraic Thinking / Place Value & Proportion / Application of Number / Directed Number / Fractional Thinking / Lines & Angles / Reasoning with Number / Proportional Reasoning / Representations / Algebraic Techniques / Developing Number / Developing Geometry / Reasoning with Data
Students will also be earning their coloured belts each week in their Numeracy Ninjas challenge, answering 30 questions in 5 minutes on Key Maths Life Skills.
In KS4, students are preparing for their Functional Skills Maths Level 1 and 2 and GCSE according to age and ability. Functional Skills Maths gives them the opportunity to see Maths being used in real life contexts and gives students a stepping stone towards completing their GCSE Maths at the end of Year 11.
