The intention of this unit is to refresh and secure mathematical knowledge from Key Stage 2 that will underpin the new concepts to be covered in Key Stage 3.
Each lesson of this short unit will remind students of key mathematical knowledge from Key Stage 2. Students will have opportunities to display what they know already and consolidate concepts.
At the end of the unit students will sit two 45 minute written test papers which which will check on the full range of their Key Stage 2 knowledge. Teachers will use this information to guide their planning for the rest of the year to ensure that, where knowledge is secure they are quickly challenged with new ideas, and where there are gaps they get the support they need to fill these in over the course of the year.
