During a major mathematics session, we looked into the role of the subject leader and class teacher. One area looked into in more depth was a scheme of work for the year. This is an example of a scheme of work for a year 5 class throughout the whole year. It identifies the topics that will be covered and most importantly these are referred back to throughout the year to ensure that the children cover them more than once. Included in ours is the different areas of the national curriculum and the statutory requirements for each. Alongside we have included a tally of the number of times each area is covered in the year. We also added in a pre-assessment for the tasks which is indicated by the number in brackets, letting the teacher know which topic is coming next.
Target: continue to gain a deeper understanding of schemes of work.
