Year 4Mastery OverviewTerm by Term
Year 4OverviewAssessmentOne of the most frequent request we get as a Maths Hubis for a suggested long term curriculum plan formathematics in primary. We have listened to whatteachers need and the following mastery overviews havebeen developed by primary practioners in conjunction withthe White Rose Maths Hub to provide a curriculum planthat will support ‘Teaching for Mastery’.Alongside these curriculum overviews, our aim is also toprovide a free assessment for each term’s plan. Eachassessment will be made up of two parts:There is a termly plan for each year group from Year 1 toYear 6; each term is split into twelve weeks. You will seefrom the overviews that a significant amount of time isdevoted to developing key number concepts each year.This is to build their fluency as number sense will affecttheir success in other areas of mathematics. Studentswho are successful with number are much more confidentmathematicians.We hope you find them useful. If you have any commentsabout this document or have any ideas please do get intouch.The White Rose Maths Hub Team Trinity Academy Halifax [email protected] 1: Fluency based arithmetic practicePart 2: Reasoning based questionsYou can use these assessments to determine gaps inyour students’ knowledge and use them to plan supportand intervention strategies.The assessments have beendesigned with new KS2 SATSin mind. All of theassessmentswill be ready by30 November 2015.
Year 4Teaching for MasteryConcrete – Pictorial – AbstractThese overviews are designed to support a masteryapproach to teaching and learning and have beendesigned to support the aims and objectives of the newNational Curriculum.As a hub we believe that all students, when introduced toa key new concept, should have the opportunity to buildcompetency in this topic by taking this approach.The overviews; have number at their heart. A large proportion oftimeis spent reinforcing number to buildcompetency ensure teachers stay in the required key stage andsupport the ideal of depth before breadth. ensure students have the opportunity to staytogether as they work through the schemes as awhole group provide plenty of time to build reasoning andproblem solving elements into the curriculum.Concrete – students should have the opportunity to useconcrete objects and manipulatives to help themunderstand what they are doing.Pictorial – students should then build on this concreteapproach by using pictorial representations.Theserepresentations can then be used to reason and solveproblems.An example of a barmodelling diagram usedto solve problems.Abstract – with the foundations firmly laid, studentsshould be able to move to an abstract approach usingnumbers and key concepts with confidence.

Year 4Frequently Asked QuestionsWe have bought one of the new Singapore textbooks.Can we use these curriculum plans?My students have completed the assessment but theyhave not done well.Many schools are starting to make use of a masterytextbook used in Singapore and China, the schemes havebeen designed to work alongside these textbooks. Thereare some variations in sequencing, but this should notcause a large number of issuesThis is your call as a school, however ourrecommendation is that you would spend some time withthe whole group focussing on the areas of the curriculumthat they don’t appear to have grasped. If a couple ofstudents have done well then these could be given richtasks and deeper problems to build an even deeperunderstanding.If we spend so much time on number work, how canwe cover the rest of the curriculum?Students who have an excellent grasp of number makebetter mathematicians. Spending longer on masteringkey topics will build a student’s confidence and helpsecure understanding. This should mean that less timewill need to be spent on other topics.In addition schools that have been using these schemesalready have used other subjects and topic time to teachand consolidate other areas of the mathematicscurriculum. Trinity Academy Halifax [email protected] we really move straight to this curriculum plan ifour students already have so many gaps inknowledge?The simple answer is yes. You might have to pick thecorrect starting point for your groups. This might not be inthe relevant year group and you may have to do someconsolidation work before.These schemes work incredibly well if they are introducedfrom Year 1 and continued into Year 2, then into Year 3and so on.
Year 4Detailed SchemesEveryone Can SucceedTo complement these yearly overviews we are working ontermly schemes of learning that provide:As a Maths Hub we believe that all students can succeedin mathematics.We don’t believe that there areindividuals who can do maths and those that can’t. Apositive teacher mindset and strong subject knowledgeare key to student success in mathematics. More details on how to teach particular aspects ofthe curriculum Fluency, reasoning and problem solving ideas foreach topic.These will gradually become available over this term.Please keep checking back for updates.In addition to this the NCETM have developed a fantasticseries of problems, tasks and activities that can be usedto support ‘Teaching for Mastery’. They have been writtenby experts in mathematics.It will also give you a detailed idea of what it means totake a mastery approach across your school.Information can be found on the link below.https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/46689 Trinity Academy Halifax [email protected] InformationIf you would like more information on ‘Teaching forMastery’ you can contact the White Rose Maths Hub [email protected] are offering courses on: Bar modelling Teaching for Mastery Year group subject specialism intensive courses –become a maths expert.Our monthly newsletter also contains the latest initiativeswe are involved with.
