# Early level 2 plan (term 1)

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.

## Mathematical magic

Level Two
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit provides you with a range of opportunities to assess the entry level of achievement of your students.
• Classify whole numbers as even or odd and generalise the nature of sums when even and odd numbers are added.
• Recognise that sums remain the same if the same amount is added and subtracted to the two addends, e.g. 17 + 19 = 27 + 9.
• Create and follow instructions to make a model made with shapes.
• Recombi...

## Pirate plays

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit we explore the size of a metre and develop our own ways to estimate a metre length.
• Recognise the need for a standard unit of length.
• Recognise a metre length.
• Estimate and measure to the nearest metre.

## Picasso

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit uses the context of Picasso's art to explore two and three-dimensional shapes, to recognise their features, and to develop appropriate language to discuss Picasso's and their own artworks.
• Sort geometric blocks and explain their groupings.
• Understand and use geometric language to describe the features of two-dimensional (plane) shapes.
• Create an artwork using plane shapes.
• Recognise how shape is an important feature of Picasso’s artworks.
• Understand and describe the features of a cube.
• Cre...

## Cuisenaire mats

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit ākonga use Cuisenaire rods to make 'number mats' that illustrate a variety of numerical patterns and can be visually appealing. Ākonga formally record the number relationships in the mat. This unit is based on the assumption that the small white cube is one. There are many ways...
• Use addition and multiplication to find number combinations that 'make' a given result.
