Year 8 Scheme of Work Shirebrook Academy Overview: The premise behind the new SoW for Year 8 is that they will continue to secure the underlying philosophies and skills that are needed to ensure success in mathematics. At the beginning of each new unit all students will attend a lecture in the theatre. These lectures are designed to promote mathematical concepts, enjoyment of mathematics and foremost to address the conception that many students have about mathematics. Units will be taught for the appropriate length of time and will not stick to term duration, therefore if one unit needs nine weeks then it will run for nine weeks. For each unit teachers will be given the objectives, main activities / resources should be saved in the appropriate folders on the network. At the end of every unit students will complete an assessment. Students will have one exercise book. Key pieces of work and Assessments will be stuck into the front of the student’s books and marked. Practise work and day to day workings will be done in the back of the student’s book which will be turned upside down. It will be left to the discretion of the teacher as to what and when to mark the practise work. Technicalities: All presentations will be in the same format. No underlining, italics or block capitals. The date, title and objective will be in bold. The font size will be the font recommended for Dyslexia students (dysle+iefont.com) and the font size will be 12 – 14 point.
