Year 5 maths plan Volume and Capacity ESSENTIAL maths

(0)
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. Through using cm3 blocks, pupils will further develop their understanding of the standard units for capacity (the space within a container). To help understand the planning I would recommend that you also download ESSENTIAL maths planning FAQs. The Herts for Learning maths experts (https://www.hertsforlearning.co.uk/resources) have mapped and connected the curriculum in each year group term by term. Each half-term is developed with an easy to pick up and use set of sequences with step by step guidance. Examples of how concrete and pictorial representations can benefit pupils’ learning as well as other mastery techniques are included. Ideas to deepen and extend mathematical thinking for all learners, examples of great questions and resources to support pupils’ talk and reasoning are embedded. The planning resources are available in half-term formats for the year groups and phases needed for our e-shop. This is the essential maths planning resource for all Key Stage 1 and 2 teachers. •Clear progression to ensure coherence and consistency •Quality learning – secure, deepen, keep up •Clear teaching guidance and resources •Search no more, reinvest your time to focus upon your pupils’ needs

Mixed age planning for Year 1 and 2 maths. Positional language and sequencing (LS1)

(0)
Mixed age planning for Year 1 and 2, Learning sequence 1. **HfL ESSENTIALmaths mixed age planning. ** Please refer to HfL MIXED AGE PLANNING IMPLEMENTATION GUIDANCE DOCUMENT for details on how to use these plans. Contains step by step guidance designed alongside mixed age class teachers, includes examples of how concrete, pictorial representations can benefit pupils’ learning as well as other mastery techniques. This is Learning sequence 1 of 10 for the Autumn term. This first sequence of the term focuses upon position and direction. Pupils often struggle with the complexity of language needed to describe position. The context of the language is broad, varied in real life and requires plenty of rehearsal across a range of curriculum areas. Rotations and the related language is introduced to Year 1. Links are made to time and the clock face. Year 2 apply this learning to compass points and to turns when following and giving directions. Ordinal numbers are used in real-life contexts such as position in a queue or floors of a building. These are then combined with positional language such as ‘left’ and ‘right’. Pupils are familiar with creating patterns. Repeating patterns provide opportunities for applying ordinal numbers to describe the position of shapes within the pattern or to identify shapes and their properties within a sequence.

Year 2 Maths plan Telling the time; O'clock, half past, quarter past and to. ESSENTIAL maths

(0)
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.
