This is an excellent sequence of learning for Year 2, complete with a range of supporting resources. The ability to tell the time is something that is difficult to achieve just within mathematics lessons. It requires drawing pupils’ attention to time throughout the day and it is especially important for many pupils who might not have had experience of analogue clocks in their home environment. Displaying both analogue and digital clocks on which pupils can directly link the two will support their ongoing understanding. This will also provide an understanding of the times at which particular events happen throughout the day.

This is an excellent series of lessons for Year 5, complete with an extensive range of supporting resources. This lesson sequence covers National Curriculum objectives: • Estimate volume [for example, using 1 cm3 blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)] and capacity [for example, using water] Within this sequence of learning pupils will build on their understanding of square numbers related to area to consider what cube numbers are and represent these concretely. This will lead to exploration of volume - reinforcing the understanding that volume is the measure of the space taken up by a three-dimensional object and how this can be calculated for a cuboid using length x width x height.

Year 6 maths planning Order of operations and algebra

Year 6 maths planning Order of operations and algebra

in mathematics, the order of operations is a collection of rules that define which procedures to perform first in order to evaluate a given mathematical expression. Firstly, real life situations are used to support pupils to understand why brackets are needed and to know why multiplication comes before addition. The sequence then continues to explore the implications for subtraction and brackets. Abstract calculation is used to support pupils in discovering why we need a set of rules for the order of operations as pupils explore the implications on results with and without brackets – following a left to right calculation approach. BIDMAS, as a mnemonic, is introduced and pupils continue to create algebraic equations from bar models that they are familiar with (addition and subtraction; multiplication and division). They develop understanding of the concept of a variable and algebraic short hand such as 3t = 3 x t = t + t + t. Application of algebraic equations is applied to solve word problems and to more abstract problems such as “I am thinking of a number”. Pupils will continue to apply their understanding of algebra through subsequent sequences and explore it in more detail at the end of the spring term.
