With much pressure to take GCSE's early. KS4 now includes Year 9 as a starting point for GCSE and covered over 3 Years modular (and linear thrown in as well!). Does anyone have or know of a KS3 SoW for a 2 year period, to deal with the basics and possibly longer activities which last 1-2 weeks and cover the basics. I've done some work with Enterprise type activites where they don't realise what maths they are using, but they use it and work things out. Usually group work / working as a team. The trouble with our present KS4 (merged school and starting a fresh after only a year and a bit) is that the kids don't know their basic. Very low level school. The KS2 figures show we should have 70+% A*-C's with Maths and English and Science. Reality is that behaviour is impossible and these kids give up, can't be bothered and have little in the way of aspiration. SO getting the basics is realyy important. Some year 11's still can't multiply properly in the top sets! So any links or actual SoW over 2 years for KS3 would be appreciated to mull around and chop and change. Driven by figures, limited by budgets, expectation beyond aspiration!
