Mathematics

Hall Park Academy: Mathematics department curriculum intent statement

The key aim for the Mathematics curriculum taught at Hall Park academy is to ensure students are exiting their GCSEs with the foundational skills required to begin to make sense of the world as well as a curiosity and appreciation of the beauty of Mathematics as a connected web of ideas.

The curriculum itself will aim to support and challenge all pupils appropriately from year 7 through to year 13 preparing all pupils for their next steps either academically, vocationally or in the workplace.

To achieve the above there are four overriding themes that can be found throughout the Mathematics curriculum. These themes are:

  • Developing understanding
  • Applying knowledge
  • Reasoning mathematically
  • Retrieving knowledge

Understanding will be developed through a carefully sequenced order of learning that builds on prerequisites built up previously which offers opportunities to behave mathematically. Teachers will meet the students where they are at using effective AFL to strengthen and build on this knowledge in order to effectively build schema and make connections.

Knowledge will be applied to standard and non-standard problems in order to increase fluency and further deepen understanding of ideas. This mixture of standard and non-standard will be found across the teaching of units, homework and starters.

Our students will be asked to use reasoning to both solve non-standard and unfamiliar problems as well explaining the rationale behind their solutions. Students will also be given opportunities to make conjectures, generalise and piece together chains of reasoning in order to develop transferable skills that can be taken with them beyond their studies at Hall Park.

Opportunities for knowledge retrieval will be provided via weekly home work and daily starters. The knowledge being retried during these starters will be influenced by long term assessments and end of unit assessments to ensure opportunities to improve on areas of weakness are constant.

Understand. Apply. Reason. Retrieve.

French

Students who study MFL at Hall Park Academy learn about a language and a culture other than their own. They gain an awareness of their place in the world as a global citizen, and the opportunities that this affords them. They develop the ability to understand, and to communicate in, another language, which is a lifelong skill that can be applied to education, employment and leisure. Students develop their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in French and/or German, which in turn supports the development of these skills in their native language. Our core purpose is to provide the foundations for further language study, be that French, German or another language, and to equip pupils for study, work and travel in other countries.
