All students follow a Scheme of Work which builds on work covered in Primary School and covers a range of aspects from each of the broad content headings listed below:

Number
Algebra
Shape, Space and Measures
Handling Data

Each of these aspects are re-visited, consolidated and extended throughout the year and in subsequent years.

Mathematical Processes and Applications (Problem Solving skills) are an integral part of the content areas listed above.

Key Stage 3 Approach

Throughout Key Stage 3 students build on their attainment in Mathematics from Primary School.  We follow the National Strategy framework and students develop their subject knowledge alongside their problem solving skills.

Students are taught in ability groups throughout Key Stage 3 and the pace and content of lessons is tailored to meet individual needs.

Formal one-to-one tuition and small group intervention are available to students, who have fallen behind their peers in the progress they are making, in order to enable them to catch up and flourish in the subject.  In addition to this, more informal strategies are in place to enable every child to fulfil their potential in this subject; which is essential for both study in other areas and everyday life.

Homework is generally set weekly and may take a variety of forms, e.g. worksheets or activities to consolidate or assess understanding, preparation for future lessons, revision for exams and online tasks.  The department has its own dedicated homework website where parents can check the work which has been set.  The URL for this is https://sites.google.com/site/stbernardsmaths

Students also have individual passwords for the MyMaths.co.uk website and can use this to help them review classwork, revise for exams or complete assigned homework.
