Planning

A Planning

Busy Ant Maths supports teachers in planning a successful mathematics programme for their unique teaching context and ensures: • a clear understanding of pupils’ pre-requisite skills before undertaking particular tasks and learning new concepts • considered progression from one lesson to another • regular revisiting and extension of previous learning • a judicious balance of objectives, and the time dedicated to each one • the use of a consistent format and structure. The elements of Busy Ant Maths that form the basis for planning can be summarised as follows:

Long-term plans The 2014 Primary National Curriculum for Mathematics constitutes the long-term plan for schools to follow. By closely reflecting the Programmes of Study, the Busy Ant Maths course embodies this long-term plan.

Medium-term plans The Busy Ant Maths Medium-term Plans show termly outlines of units of work with National Curriculum Attainment Target references, and specific lesson objectives. Using the Busy Ant Maths online Planning Tool via Collins Connect, these plans can be easily adapted to meet the specific needs of individual schools.

Short-term plans Individual Lesson Plans and accompanying Learning activities represent the majority of each yearly Teacher’s Guide. The lessons provide short-term plans that can easily be followed closely, or used as a ‘springboard’ and varied to suit specific needs of particular classes. An editable ‘Weekly Planning Grid’ is also provided on Collins Connect, which individual teachers can fully adapt.

Introduction Number and place value

Teaching The most important role of teaching is to promote learning and to raise pupils’ attainment. To best achieve these goals Busy Ant Maths believes in the importance of teachers: • having high expectations for all pupils • systematically and effectively checking pupils’ understanding throughout lessons, anticipating where they may need to intervene, and doing so with notable impact on the quality of learning • generating high levels of engagement and commitment to learning • consistently providing high quality marking and constructive feedback to ensure that pupils make rapid gains • offering sharply focused and timely support and intervention that matches pupils’ individual needs.

To help teachers achieve these goals, Busy Ant Maths provides: • highly focused and clearly defined learning objectives • examples of targeted questioning, using appropriate mathematical vocabulary, that is aimed at both encouraging and checking pupil progress • a proven lesson structure that provides clear and accurate directions, instructions and explanations • meaningful and well-matched activities for pupils at all levels of understanding to practise and consolidate their learning • highly effective models and images to clearly illustrate mathematical concepts, including interactive digital resources. Each lesson in Busy Ant Maths has a specific learning objective derived from an Attainment Target from the 2014 Primary National Curriculum for Mathematics Programmes of Study, and follows the same teaching and learning sequence.

Introduction

Assessment Assessment, record-keeping and reporting continue the teaching and learning cycle and are used to form the basis for adjustments to the teaching programme. Busy Ant Maths offers manageable and meaningful assessment on four levels: • Diagnostic assessment The Assessment Tasks from the Busy Ant Maths Assessment Guide assist teachers in determining pupils’ readiness for a particular unit of work. They are designed to yield information that will directly support the teaching of individual pupils and whole-class teaching. • Short-term ‘on-going’ assessment Progress Check Questions ( ) are an important feature of every Busy Ant Maths lesson and are linked to specific learning objectives. They are designed to provide immediate feedback to pupils and to gauge pupil progress in order to adapt teaching. Shared Success Criteria are also provided in each lesson to assist pupils in identifying the steps required to achieve the learning objective. • Medium-term ’formative’ assessment As well as being used for diagnostic assessment, the Assessment Tasks, along with the Assessment Sheets, from the Busy Ant Maths Assessment Guide can be used to review and record the progress of both individual pupils and the class as a whole, in relation to the National Curriculum Attainment Targets. An End of Unit Test is provided for each of the 12 Busy Ant Maths units. Each test is designed to assess the mathematics covered during the three-week unit. The formative Assessment Tasks, Sheets and Tests provide individual and/or group opportunities to identify those pupils who are not yet reaching, or who are exceeding, national expectations. They can also be used to set individual targets for pupils. • Long-term ‘summative’ assessment The End of Year Class Evaluation document shows individual pupils’ attainment against national standards. It draws upon the data gathered throughout the year including results from Assessment Tasks and Sheets, performance in whole-class discussions, participation in group work, written evidence and any other supplementary notes. It is this document that forms the basis for reporting to parents and informing the next year’s teacher. Importantly, it also helps to determine whether pupils are on track to meet expectations at the end of the key stage. Collins Connect contains a powerful assessment tool for diagnostic, formative and summative assessments. Along with manageable and meaningful record-keeping formats it allows you to collect assessment data to store online and present digitally for class and whole school analysis. Refer to the Busy Ant Maths Assessment Guide or the Busy Ant Maths Getting Started Guide on Collins Connect for a more detailed explanation of the assessment, record-keeping and reporting features of Busy Ant Maths.

Week 2: Number - Addition and subtraction National Curriculum attainment targets

Pupil targets

Pupils should be taught to:

• Combine two sets of objects to ﬁnd a total

• read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (–) and equals (=) signs

• Understand, read and record addition facts within 5 using the symbols + and =

• represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20

• Relate addition to counting on and use this idea to ﬁnd the total of two sets of objects or numbers • Relate subtraction to counting back and taking away, and apply this understanding in a practical context • Understand, read and record subtraction facts within 5 using the symbols − and =

Weekly overview Pupils use addition facts within 5, counting two sets of objects and then combining them to ﬁnd the total number of objects. They become familiar with using the + and = symbols in addition number sentences and use a number track to support their working. They use subtraction facts within 5, counting a set of objects and then taking away a given number to ﬁnd the number left. They become familiar with using the − and = symbols in subtraction number sentences and use a number track to support their working. Prerequisites for learning

Week 3: Geometry - Properties of shapes National Curriculum attainment target

Pupil targets

Pupils should be taught to:

• Associate the number of sides and corners with 2-D shape names (circle, triangle, square and rectangle)

• recognise and name common 2-D shapes, including:

• Name 2-D shapes (circles, triangles, squares and triangles) regardless of size or orientation

- 2-D shapes [for example, rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles]

• Use partial views to identify simple 2-D shapes • Create and identify different triangles • Understand what makes a square a special rectangle • Create and identify different rectangles, including squares

Weekly overview Pupils name 2-D shapes as circles, triangles, rectangles and squares and discuss their properties, including their number of sides and corners and whether their sides are curved or straight. They also consider the differences between rectangles and squares and are introduced to the idea of squares as a special type of rectangle. Pupils rotate and change the size of 2-D shapes to develop their understanding that size and orientation do not affect the names of shapes. They make different triangles and consider how many there could be, to develop their understanding that there are an endless number of possible triangles. Pupils make, rotate and resize rectangles and squares to develop their understanding of their properties, and why a square is a special rectangle. Prerequisites for learning

Assessment

• Recognise simple 2-D shapes in pictures: circles, triangles, rectangles, squares

Use the following assessments from Busy Ant Maths Assessment Guide 1:

• Use everyday language to describe 2-D shapes

Alter the range of numbers used, as appropriate. If children are conﬁdent with numbers 0–10 but struggle with 11–20, reduce the range, for example, to 0–15 initially. Once they are conﬁdent in using this range, extend it to include all the numbers 0–20.

• Display: Slide 1 showing a 0–20 number track with the numbers hidden (or Slide 2 showing a 0–20 number line, if preferred) or the Number Line tool. Give each child a number card showing a number in the range 0–20. • Say: We need to put the numbers on this number track. If you have a card with zero on it, hold it up. • Click to reveal 0 on the track. • Say: If you have the card that comes next after zero, hold it up. • Click to reveal 1 on the track. • Say: 0, 1, … can you tell me the number that comes after 1? (2) If you have the card with 2 on it, hold it up. • Continue clicking to reveal all the numbers 0–20, in turn, on the number track. • Point to each number in turn and count forwards with children from 0 to 20. • Repeat, this time to count backwards from 20 to 0. • Say a number in the range 0–20 and ask individual children which number comes before it and which comes after. Repeat for various numbers. • Ask children to close their eyes. Click to hide one of the numbers on the track. • Ask children to identify the missing number. Click to reveal it on the track. • Say: If you have this number, hold it up. • Repeat several times for different numbers. • Ask children to swap their number card with a partner. • Say: Tell your partner about your number. Which number is it? Which number comes before it? Which number comes after it?

• Display: Slide 1 showing the 0–20 number track (or Slide 2 showing the 0–20 number line, if preferred). Click to reveal all the numbers. • Say the number names in order from 0 to 20 with children, pointing to each number as it is named. • Point to a number on the track, for example, 10. • Say: Tell me this number. (10) • Ask: Which number comes before ten? Which number comes after ten? • Continue to point to numbers on the number track. • Recite the number names from 0 to 20 with children, forwards and backwards.

Overcoming Barriers • Children may be conﬁdent reciting number names in sequence but have difﬁculty recognising individual numbers when presented in isolation or out of order. Provide plenty of opportunities for them to match spoken number names to the corresponding written numerals. Ensure that they are able to recognise numbers 0–10 easily, before extending the range to 15, then 20.

Overcoming Barriers • Children may have difﬁculty in grasping the concepts of ‘less’ and ‘more’. If so, explain using visual or concrete contexts. For example, show a small number of birds sitting on a branch and establish how many there are. Then have one joining the others to illustrate ‘one more’, and repeat for one ﬂying away to show ‘one less’.
