Long term plans

Below, you will find the long term mathematics overview for each class. This enables us to ensure appropriate coverage for all of our pupils, whilst ensuring time to address misconceptions, consolidate knowledge and deepen understanding throughout the year.


This year the Department for Education introduced the 'Ready to Progress' criteria for mathematics. This document aims to support knowledge acquisition after and during remote learning. Outlined within this document is the essential mathematical knowledge for each year group, the associated prerequisite learning and future application of this knowledge. It is therefore important to note that our mathematics overviews are flexible to ensure a secure understanding of the ready to progress criteria, based on formative and summative assessment.

In books you will see: 


  • Progression and challenge for all through questions provided during a lesson eg calculations that follow a pattern before random calculations, calculations that do not cross a boundary before calculations that do cross a boundary, angles starting on a horizontal line before angles that do not start on the horizontal line etc.
  • Children drawing pictorial images to aid working out/reasoning explanations.
  • Children writing sentences/paragraphs to explain their reasoning, making links and spotting patterns.
  • Challenge tasks in blue that develop children’s conceptual understanding and reasoning skills as well as addressing calculation errors.
