S1 CURRICULUM

 

 

PLANNED LEARNING EXPERIENCES:

 

We have grouped the 3rd level CfE outcomes together and created units of work to be delivered throughout S1 and S2.  The running order for S1 is:

¨      Number work 1

¨      Skills for geography

¨      Measure

¨      Number work 2

¨      Algebra

¨      Famous Mathematician research project

¨      Fractions, decimals and percentages

 

 

PROGRESS IS ASSESSED THROUGH:

 

Progress is assessed in a variety of ways depending on the unit of work.  Both summative and formative assessment – along with peer assessment may be used.  Pupils will be evaluating their work throughout the entire course.

 

 

HOMEWORK:

 

Homework is given to pupils to help consolidate and enrich their understanding of the work covered in class.  It is also used to provide feedback to the class teacher on each pupil’s progress and level.

 

Every pupil is given their own homework booklet and jotter at the beginning of the course.  They are expected to keep the booklet at home and bring the jotter in as and when required.
