Qualification pathway – In the Summer term, our focus will be on position and direction in the first half where the students will learn about compass points and positional language. This half term will also incorporate the shapes topic where a variety of activities to recognise 2D and 3D will take place including on the different features of both.
In the second half of the term, students will learn about data and statistics. Within these lessons, students will learn about reading and creating bar charts, line graphs, tally charts and tables of information to name a few. The ability of the student will determine what type of numbers are being used and may include decimal numbers and scales varying in interval.
Life skills pathway – For some students, continuing a specific qualification pathway is not appropriate and their efforts will be best spent learning about functional mathematical life skills. This could include learning about shopping and money more, mobile phones and data usage and other types of real-life scenarios. Lessons are based around a qualification specification but delivered in a manner that is appropriate to their ability and understanding.
