Preparing for Transition to Secondary Mathematics

Preparing for Transition to Secondary Mathematics
Preparing for Transition to Secondary Mathematics

In This Chapter

This chapter considers the importance of:

  • what a primary (Year 6) teacher might do to prepare their students for transition to secondary (Year 7)
  • understanding mathematical progression as a seamless transition from primary (Key Stage 2) to secondary (Key Stage 3) rather than a sequence of different steps to be climbed
  • journal writing.

The aim of this chapter is to consider ideas that can be taken into any classroom across the Key Stage 2/Key Stage 3 age range. For each idea/area of content statements from the 2014 National Curriculum programmes of study are identified to illustrate a possible progression. These ideas focus on: Statistics, Fractions, Measurement and Algebra.
