# Early level 1 plan (term 2)

Thanks for visiting NZMaths.
We are preparing to close this site by the end of August 2024. Maths content is still being migrated onto Tāhūrangi, and we will be progressively making enhancements to Tāhūrangi to improve the findability and presentation of content.

Planning notes

This plan is a starting point for planning a mathematics and statistics teaching programme for a term. The resources listed cover about 50% of your teaching time. Further resources need to be added to meet the specific learning needs of your class, to support your local curriculum and to provide sufficient teaching for a full term.

## Greedy Cat

Level One
Statistics
Units of Work
In this unit we explore ways to pose and answer investigative questions about cats by gathering and analysing data and discussing the results.
• Pose investigative questions with support from the teacher.
• With the teacher, decide on how to collect the data to answer the investigative question.
• Sort objects into categories for display.
• Make a display of the data collected (pictograph).
• Make statements about data displays.

## Learning to count: Five-based grouping

Level One
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit develops students’ understanding of, and proficiency in, using five-based grouping.
• Identify five-based groupings.
• Represent five-based groupings in a variety of ways.

## Shape Makers

Level One
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit ākonga describe and classify 2D and 3D shapes. They will use their own language in their descriptions, will explore similarities and differences, and will informally consider sides, corners, curved and straight lines.
• Sort, compare and classify 2D and 3D objects such as triangle, square, oblong, circle, box, cylinder and sphere.
• Describe shape attributes in their own language.

## Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary

Level One
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit students explore and create patterns of two and three elements using the rhyme "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary" as a focusing theme.
• "Read" a repeating pattern and predict what may come next.
• Create a repeating pattern with two elements.
• Create a repeating pattern with three elements.

## Matariki - Level 1

Level One
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit consists of mathematical learning, at Level 1 of the New Zealand Curriculum, focused around celebrations of Matariki, the Māori New Year. The sessions provide meaningful contexts that highlight Māori culture and provide powerful learning opportunities that connect different strands of...
• Assemble parts of a shape to form the whole.
• Create symmetrical figures (reflection and rotation).
• Calculate the number of direct ancestors they have.
• Use fractions to create rhythmic percussion patterns.
• Order events.
• Describe the likelihood of outcomes using the language of chance.
• Measures quantities...
