Maths Curriculum and Homework – Year 7
The table below gives an outline of topics to be taught throughout Year 7. Topics will be taught at the appropriate level of difficulty for each Maths Set, with opportunities for every pupil to consolidate prior learning, develop new skills and experience breadth across the curriculum.
Homework will be set by the class teacher on a regular basis. This may take the form of finishing set work, revision of skills, investigating new topics or solving problems.
If your child is taught mathematics by more than one teacher, the topics may be taught in a different order throughout the year.
