Hi, I am currently looking to put a proposal forward to SLT regarding my school's allocation of KS3 maths lessons for next Year's timetable. At KS3 we currently run an "integrated" curriculum. This only allows Year's 7 and 8 students two hours of dedicated Maths lessons per week. I have not been happy with this and despite raising my concerns on a number of occasions, SLT will not listen to me. Our intake of Year 7 students attainment in Maths is below the National average. Over this holiday period I plan to draw up a proposal asking for a minimum of four hours dedicated time per week for KS3. I also plan to look at the levels of progress from entry to end of Year 7 and also entry to end of Year 8. To further my argument I am looking into any research that other's may have done regarding the teaching of Maths at KS2. Can anyone direct me to such information? It would be invaluable to me to include any data, concerns etc.. as to how Maths is taught at KS2. Yuour help would be much appreciated.
