Due to the huge demand from teachers, we have decided to republish our Autumn textbook mapping and lesson breakdown resources, along with updated documents for Spring.

We hope you find these useful, but want to reinforce that these documents are designed to be used in conjunction with the White Rose Schemes of Learning and have been written as a guide to indicate the progression and pace in which the National Curriculum objectives should be covered. The lesson breakdown provided is our suggested route and should be used appropriately with professional judgement. Schools who have bought into a mastery textbook scheme should continue to use the corresponding programme.

The textbook mapping provided within this document has been designed by teachers to reference activities in a variety of commonly used textbooks so teachers can easily access exemplar material. This is in no way an endorsement of any particular textbook scheme.

We welcome any suggestions to this document and are always looking to refine and improve where possible. We hope you find it useful!

White Rose Schemes of Learning can be found here: White Rose Documents

Our textbook mapping documents have been written by teachers, for teachers to use, and have been hugely popular. Thank you for all your support – it’s been great to receive so much positive feedback!

We never intended for them to be interpreted as an endorsement of certain textbooks, and this was not how the documents were written. Unfortunately, there is a risk that the textbook mapping could be perceived this way and as a result we have been asked to withdraw this part of the document. To address this issue, we have republished an edited version on the original lesson breakdown & textbook mapping documents, which can be found here. The Spring and Summer breakdowns have been written and will be published in the next half term. If you wish to access the White Rose Schemes of Learning, they can be found by clicking here.

The Maths Hubs have begun a national project to develop some Mastery Curriculum Materials over the course of this year. It may be that our lesson breakdown does not exactly match the NCETM resources being developed. However, we know that many schools are finding it useful, so please continue to use the lesson breakdown for as long as you find it helpful!

FREE lesson breakdown & textbook mapping resources

We’re really excited to be approaching the end of term with an announcement about some exciting new resources that the Surrey Plus Maths Hub has developed to complement resources from the White Rose Maths Hub.

Surrey Plus and White Rose have a shared passion for supporting you to use a teaching for mastery approach. Our teams have worked together to launch a new range of resources that provide a lesson breakdown and map objectives to some of the major textbooks that many of you are using.

They are designed to be used in conjunction with the White Rose Maths Hub’s Schemes of Learning, and provide a useful guide to indicate progression and pace in line with National Curriculum objectives. Documents are now available for Years 1 – 6 for the Autumn term, and can be found by clicking here.

The Spring and Summer term lesson breakdowns and textbook mapping will be released in the Autumn term, and mapping to Abacus books will be produced asap.

As a hub, we are very keen to work collaboratively with a wide range of experts, and we are very excited to announce this brand new resource. As hubs, we hope that you find them useful, and as always, please feel free to contact us with any feedback or comments.

TC 3

This project is being undertaken by Deb Harper at South Farnham School and Tom Collins at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Guildford.

Scope of project

To develop a primary mastery curriculum which will be accompanied by a variation document providing examples of how to extend students laterally.

  • Three strands:
    • Arrange the KS1 and KS2 primary curriculum objectives into a coherent and progressive mastery curriculum.
    • Identify which of these objectives can be taken out of numeracy and addressed in other topics
    • Create examples of variation to address these objectives and to allow teachers to extend students laterally (this does not need to be a full set of worksheets but key examples of different variations which can be shared and then further developed. More than one example may be needed for each variation to show how a variation can be progressed).


By November, an outline of the order of topics had been drafted for each Year group. Teachers had begun to create resources that encouraged depth of learning and developed fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. At this stage, the White Rose Maths Hub Schemes of Learning were discovered!

Although it was nice to see that another Hub was thinking along the same lines as us, it quickly became clear that the resources that their projet was considerably further ahead than ours, and there was no point in duplicating work!

  • White Rose Maths Hub
  • Based in Halifax, Yorkshire
  • Trinity Teaching School alliance
  • Published FREE scheme of learning for KS1 and KS2
    • Mastery Curriculum Model
    • Fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions
    • Assessments

Is it important to register with the White Rose Hub to ensure you are notified when new materials are produced. This package is not yet complete and further assessments and resources will be available throughout the summer term.

The White Rose Schemes of Learning give Overviews for each Year Group which detail the number of weeks that should be spent on each topic. The example below shows the overview for Year 5.

Curriculum 2

curriculum 1There is further information within the Schemes of Learning which details the specific learning objectives that should be taught in each topic section. The example here shows the objectives that should be covered in the 5 week fraction topic that takes place in the Spring term of Year 5.

Though this is extremely useful as a starting point, many Primary teachers we have spoken to are struggling to understand how to structure lesson plans so that these fractions objectives fill 25 lessons.

Collaborative Working

In order to address the areas highlighted by teachers, we will be working in collaboration with the White Rose Hub to produce some supplementary resources. Deb and Tom are working on producing a lesson by lesson breakdown for each topic to give teachers a better indication of how much time should be spent on each objective and how the learning could be scaffolded.

The White Rose Schemes of Learning also give some examples of questions and tasks which develop student’s fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills of each of the national curriculum statements.

Curriculum 3

curriculum 6The White Rose documents have been extremely well received by Primary teachers, but some have commented that they would find powerpoint resources beneficial so they can be used within lesson slides. Deb and Tom are planning on linking the powerpoint resources developed by teachers at South Farnham and St Joseph’s to selected learning objectives, providing additional lesson resources. Here are some examples of some additional fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions for one fractions objective.curriculum 7curriculum 8

Textbook Mapping

The final aspect of this collaborative project is the development of a textbook mapping document. This will enable teachers to see how their current textbooks can be used to fit with the White Rose Schemes of Learning. The aim is to link exercises in 3 main textbooks (Busy Ants, Inspire and Maths No Problem) to specific learning objectives.

curriculum 5

End Goal!

The aim is to work with the White Rose Maths Hub to produce a FREE fully resourced package that includes the following:

  • Mastery Schemes of Learning for KS1 and KS2
  • Lesson by lesson learning objectives for all topics
  • Mapping to popular text books for all topics
  • Bank of questions for each learning objective
  • PowerPoint resources with fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions for selected topics
  • Termly assessments

We hope that the supplementary resources will be available for the Autumn term by June 2016.
