In the knowledge that learning mathematics involves exposing structures and making connections, our framework is built around four themes: number sense, additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning and geometric reasoning. These themes make clear connections between areas of mathematics, encouraging children to use what they know and understand rather than treating each area of maths as seperate and unconnected.
Our framework is arranged into 14 sequences for each year group. Each sequence brings together learning objectives from different domains within the National Curriculum Programmes of Study that are connected around a central idea.
The overview charts for each year group (included below) tracks the progression of the themes and their objectives over the course of the years.
