Late level 1 plan (term 3)

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.

Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students participate in a variety of art based activities to develop their knowledge of 2-dimensional shapes. They use their own language to describe their works and the shapes they have used.
  • Name 2-dimensional shapes: triangle, square, oblong (non-square rectangle), circle, oval and diamond.
  • Describe shape attributes in their own language.

The purpose of this unit of sequenced lessons is to develop knowledge and understanding of the place value structure of the numbers from ten to twenty.
  • Instantly recognise patterns for teen numbers.
  • Make groups of ten and represent teen numbers with materials.
  • Recognise and record words and symbols for teen numbers.
  • Understand that in a teen number the 1 represents one group of ten.
  • Expand teen number notation and understand simple place...

Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit involves the students directly comparing the weight (mass) of two or more objects.
  • Compare two objects by weight.
  • Order three or more objects by weight.
  • Describe the weight of objects using comparative language, for example, heavier, lighter.

Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit explores early multiplication where students are encouraged to skip count to solve story problems, rather than counting all. For example "John has 3 ponds and there are 2 fish in each pond. How many fish are there altogether?" Students will be encouraged to solve this problem by going 2, 4...
  • Skip count in twos and fives.
  • Skip count to solve simple multiplication problems with a sum of up to 20.
  • Solve simple multiplication problems in various ways and talk about how they found the answer.

Units of Work
In this unit we explore linear patterns using snakes as the context. We examine, construct and record snakes of different patterns. We also put scarves on our snakes and ask others to predict what is hidden.
  • Record patterns on grid paper.
  • Make predictions about ‘missing’ sections of a pattern.
  • Use words to describe linear patterns.
