During Key Stage 3, through the mathematics content, all pupils will be taught to:

  • Develop Fluency
  • Reason mathematically
  • Solve problems
  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Ratio, proportion and rates of change
  • Geometry and Measure
  • Probability
  • Statistics

ICT and Computing is taught to students in key stage 3 as part of their Maths and Science lessons with dedicated lessons in our ICT suites within the Maths and Computing block. In the computing lessons within maths, students will be taught to:

  • Develop computational thinking
  • Evaluate and apply ICT to solve problems
  • Gain practical experience of writing computer programs
  • Use a variety of programming languages
  • Complete group activities using computing and logical problem solving techniques with challenges that include designing an escape room and managing the movement of a troublesome turtle!

MyMaths text books are used from years 7 to 13 at St Crispin’s and students will be issued with their online login to their digital textbook when they arrive.

Students are tracked using half termly tests that measure their progress against the new GCSE 9-1 grades. Please click here for more details on what skills are taught at each grade.

 

Year 7 (Books 1A – 1C)

The students are placed into ability sets using the KS2 data we receive from the primary schools and are in these sets from their very first maths lesson at St Crispin’s.

The composition of the sets is reviewed every half term using the half termly tracking tests or as required by a student’s individual development. As students develop at different rates, movement between sets is inevitable. This enables students to make maximum progress.

Each student is required to attend lessons with the appropriate equipment. This includes a pen, pencil, ruler, calculator, protractor and a pair of compasses, together with their exercise books and textbooks (MyMaths) which will be issued at the beginning of term.

Year 8 (Books 2A – 2C)

Year 9 (Books 3A – 3C)
