Tracking Mathematical Learning Objectives (Level 5 to 8+)

By National Curriculum Levels (Level 5 to 8+) and by Year Group (Year 6 to 8+) from the Primary Strategy for Gifted and Talented Mathematicians

The tracking documents below are specifically designed to support primary teachers to cater for the needs of gifted and talented mathematicians. Both tracking tools have a starting point from the Primary Strategy and enable teachers to track specific National Curriculum and Primary Strategy learning objectives above and beyond Year 6 and Level 5.

It is to be noted, however, that this tool is only one way to support the gifted mathematicians within the primary classroom. This support is through acceleration of learning objectives to increase the ‘pitch’ of learning to those of older pupils. Two further approaches of enrichment (using and applying skills in a range of different contexts) and extension (working at a greater depth with increasing complexity, subtlety or abstraction) also need to occur.
