The intention of these sheets is to provide teachers with material to teach the statutory requirements set out in the Year 2 Programme of Study for Mathematics in the renewed 2014 National Curriculum Framework. The Programme of Study Guide matches the statutory requirements with the relevant sheet or sheets.
Each sheet is divided into three sections.
Section A: activities based upon work previously covered. This section generally matches the requirements for Year 1 pupils. It can be used to remind children of work previously covered, as well as providing material for the less confident child.
Section B: activities based upon the requirements for Year 2 pupils. Most children should be able to work successfully at this level.
Section C: activities providing extension material for the faster workers and for those who need to be moved quickly onto more challenging tasks. The work in this section generally matches the requirements for the Year 3 pupils. Problems in Section C can also provide useful material for discussion in the plenary session.
The correspondence of the three sections A–C to the requirements for different year groups provides a simple, manageable structure for planning differentiated activities and for both formal and informal assessment of children’s progress. The commonality of the content pitched at different levels also allows for progression within the lesson. Children acquiring confidence at one level find they can successfully complete activities at the next level.
Each set of sheets is just £20 (+VAT) and supplied on CD.
