Late 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.

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...

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit supports students learning to understand the structure of two-digit numbers and how to operate with them.

Session One

  • Calculate the gains and losses in a game of Snakes and Ladders.

Session Two

  • Represent two digit numbers with play money.
  • Add and subtract two digit numbers.

Session Three

  • Use ‘up through ten’ and ‘back through ten strategies to add and subtract single digit...

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit uses the context of making paper planes to develop understanding of metre and centimetre measures. Students investigate a variety of paper airplanes designs, experiment to see which planes fly the furthest, and decide winners by measuring and comparing results.
  • Estimate using metres and centimetres.
  • Measure to the nearest metre and centimetre.

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit five-based bead strings and number lines are used to solve addition and subtraction problems. The aim is to get students that use an early additive strategy to solve problems using a tidy number strategy with 10.
  • Solve addition problems like 8 + 4 = by going 8 + 2 = 10, 10 + 2 (more) = 12.
  • Solve subtraction problems like 14 – 6 by going 14 – 4 = 10, 10 – 2 (more) = 8.

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students sort and explore two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometric shapes, identify and describe their distinguishing features and come to appreciate the efficiency of the tessellating hexagon in meeting the needs of honeybees.
  • Identify distinguishing features of 2D (plane) shapes using the language of sides and corners.
  • Identify distinguishing features of 3D shapes using the language of faces, edges, vertex/vertices.
  • Explore hexagons, recognising that they tessellate.
  • Make hollow prism shapes and describe their...
