National Curriculum: Progression Maps

Progression Maps for Key Stages 1 and 2

The progression maps are structured using the topic headings as they appear in the National Curriculum.

Topic
Number and Place Value
Multiplication and Division
Fractions (including decimals and percentages)
Ratio and Proportion
Measurement
Geometry - properties of shapes
Geometry - position and direction
Statistics
Algebra
Guidance Notes

Each of the above categories has been divided into sub categories to illustrate progression in key areas.

All programmes of study statements are included and some appear twice. This is indicated in the text. This occurs where:

• The statement has central relevance to more than one sub category within a topic;
• The statement has central relevance to more than one mathematics topic. This is done to reflect the aims of the curriculum that pupils should make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems (Mathematics programmes of study: key stages 1 and 2 page 3). However the connections made are not intended to be exhaustive and teachers should seek to support pupils in making other connections.

Progression Maps for Key Stage 3

Topic
Number
Ratio and Proportion and Rates of Change
Geometry and Measures
Probability and Statistics
Algebra

Glossary

The definitions in the glossary refer to the words and terms as they are used in the programmes of study. This document is based on an earlier publication Mathematics glossary for teachers in key stages 1 to 4 published by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority in 2003. It is intended to be used alongside the 2014 National Curriculum for teachers to check the meaning of the terms.

Why does the glossary contain so many terms that are not in the NC? Addend and subtrahend for example.

Can they be put on as a ziped file so all can be downloaded in one go?

The progression maps for reasoning skills can be found on the reasoning skills page at: https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/44672

Where are the progression maps with reasoning i.e. updated version of these? Can't seem to access them anymore!

Excellent Progression Maps. Hope we can achieve this for KS3 and KS4 (Emerging, Expected, Exceeded???)

If the expertise within the NCETM are finding it challenging then this is going to be equally challenging for teachers of pupils in KS3.

Rosie - Since the Programmes of Study for Key Stage 3 (unlike those for Key Stages 1 and 2) are not broken down into year groups, it is not as straightforward to produce a progression map that suggests a chronological order for teaching within each topic area. We are currently reviewing how we can augment the existing KS3-related resources. Please keep an eye on our News section for announcements.

Are there going to be KS3 Progression Maps available?

Statistics and KS3 probability only goes up to year 6. Is there something we should know?

These are fantastic! When will the assessment question rows be added to the progression maps (such as the draft example shown at the 2Day Conference in London)? Thanks.
