Year 7

In year 7 students will cover key number skills such as division, subtraction, multiplication and division in greater depth, learning how to represent calculations using both concrete and pictorial methods.

These skills will then be stretched to calculations with fractions, decimals, percentages and negative numbers. Students will start to learn the importance of maths in statistical analysis, and how to analyse a set of data to draw conclusions and generalise findings.

They will also learn how to express relationships and unknowns using algebra, practicing manipulating and solving equations. Finally they will cover geometry, developing their use of the language of shape, their understanding of area and angles and their skills in constructing accurate representations of shapes.

Year 7 Curriculum Overview - Maths

Year 8

In year 8 students will build on the knowledge learned in year 7. The start of the year will focus on revising decimals, and mastering the four operations with regards to decimal numbers. Following that lessons will cover proportional reasoning, introducing students to direct and indirect proportion and then moving onto working with ratios.

Students will develop their knowledge of fractions decimals and percentages, with a specific focus on learning how to work with percentages and linking this to real world scenarios. Their knowledge of algebraic manipulation will be further developed as students learn how to solve more complex equations and extending these skills to inequalities. In geometry there will be a focus on circles; identifying the different parts of a circle and using measurements to calculate circumference and area of circles.

Students will also be introduced to some of the language and mathematical skills associated with 3D shapes. Finally students will continue to improve their statistical skills, representing data using pie charts and stem and leaf diagrams.
