Main Resource
Class TeacherLevel B Textbook 5 - 14 mathematics (TeeJay Publishers)Worksheets (download free from
Approximately one half of each lesson should be teacher exposition,demonstration, oral practice (i.e. question and answer, recall and moreimportantly questions stimulating thinking and response by pupils).Demonstrations on board or whiteboard by pupils and games based learning.As a rule of thumb, no more than one half of any lesson should be class practice.
Time Allocation
The time allocation for each area of study should be broadly in line with theschool’s document on
structure and balance of the curriculum found in theforward planning folder
(some flexibility built in)Assessments for ALL classes are required to be carried out in line with theschool’s assessment procedures.The time allocations for each topic is a guide only to ensure that we are takingappropriate pace and challenge into account.

Homework is provided through Teejay Publishing booklet “Level B Homework”.Most exercises in the textbook have a linked homework exercise. These should beused for consolidation of class work or providing those pupils who have reason tobe absent from class lessons a means of covering missed work.The booklets also provide an excellent resource for revision at home prior to classtests and a means for parents to keep track of class work.Most homework exercises should be completed by all pupils during the course ofthe session.
Checking H’Work
Teachers might wish not to mark homework on each occassion, but
ensure that :-(a)a quick check be made that h’work is recorded in diary(b)a quick check to establish it has been attempted(c)homework is corrected by pupil or neighbour each day(d)difficulties arising are addressed promptly by teacher(e)regular checks are made of setting/neatness/accuracy.Self-marking, peer marking and the use of classroom assistants is encouraged to ease this process. The latter should notbe used as the sole means to address the marking of homework but should be one of the tools adopted.
The school will be introduring assessment procedures in session 2008/2009.
