Year 8



Year 8

To ensure that the transition from primary to post-primary mathematics is smooth, we have established vital links with our main local primary schools. These have included sharing Primary 7 and Year 8 schemes of work, observations in primary school classrooms, sharing resources and teaching methods across schools and meeting with Primary 7 teachers, as part of a Ballyclare Maths Forum. These steps help to ensure that each pupil experiences continuity of learning in mathematics and the effective progress made at Primary School is built on in Key Stage 3.
