Our Primary Maths Curriculum Pack is a comprehensive and ready-to-teach Maths curriculum that covers all the Maths National Curriculum objectives from Year 1 to Year 6.
In KS1, there are twelve ready-to-teach schemes of work per term per year group, and ten schemes of work per term per year group for KS2 (leaving a little more time for revision and consolidation). This means that there is no need for your teaching staff to spend hours each week planning their Maths lessons; it is all ready for them to either pick up and teach or adapt to the needs of their class.
Within each year group there is clear knowledge and skills progression as children work through each scheme of work and each strand of learning. National Curriculum objectives are fully covered (as documented in the free overview) meaning that you can provide your staff with a consistent and coherent Maths curriculum, safe in the knowledge that you are covering everything you need to cover.
Within each Maths scheme of work (which is always 5 lessons to cover a week of Maths teaching) is a set of slides to guide you and your class through the teaching input, always with plenty of opportunity for engagement, interaction and skills practise. There is then a selection of differentiated activities for children to tackle during their independent learning, as well as a 'Fancy Something Different...?' activity, which is often more investigation-led, group-led or practical. The lesson is then finished off with a plenary to bring the class back together and consolidate their learning, either through a game, a question, a puzzle, discussion point or other fun activity.

Our RE Curriculum Pack contains 36 fully planned and prepared schemes of work; 6 per year group from Year 1 to Year 6, meaning you have one scheme of work for each year group for each half term. Our RE curriculum has been designed to ensure coverage of the main world religions, as well as themes such identity, faith and belonging.
We often get asked if our RE curriculum pack aligns with the RE outline of a particular LEA or other provider. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee this because of the sheer number of regional RE providers, but our RE lessons have been designed to be as broad and balanced as possible, meaning that you can be sure that all the religions and themes you would expect to be covered are covered.
Our RE lessons not only teach children about religions around the world but also challenge children to consider their own faith and beliefs, and to learn about faith in their school and local community.

We also provide a condensed version of our RE Curriculum Pack. This option contains three schemes of work per year group instead of six, one for each term from Year 1 to Year 6. This option is perfect for schools with a more limited timetable.
Despite being half the size, this condensed pack still covers all the main religions and themes you would expect in a primary RE curriculum

With five schemes of work provided for each year group, there is one half term left free either for consolidation, revision or learning that goes beyond the curriculum. We have several other Science schemes of work outside of our Curriculum Pack linked to themes and topics, such as 'Great British Scientists' or 'Viking Science'.
