Lesson planning in line with the new Primary National Curriculum!
Structured around the number and place value sections of the programmes of study within the National Curriculum (DfE, 2013), this book provides practical examples and lesson ideas on how number and place value can be taught within the primary classroom. Children need an in-depth understanding of our number system in order to access effectively other elements of the number curriculum; this is an area of maths that is a high focus throughout the primary curriculum. The accompanying commentary before and after each lesson plan, informs some of the decisions that you will make as part of the planning process. Potential challenges associated with the lesson, including common errors and misconceptions children encounter are also discussed. The authors recognise that each class is unique and so you will find suggestions after each lesson on how it can be adapted and developed to suit your teaching needs.
