What would your National Curriculum model look like? A 3-D pop-up model of a plate of spaghetti? A maze with many routes to the centre? What would it contain? Whatever you picture, it is important not to perceive the National Curriculum as a straitjacket. It is meant to guide, not to restrict, and should not limit your imagination and creativity when planning for the learning of your pupils. Brown, M (1996) ‘The context for the research – the evolution of the National Curriculum for mathematics’, in D.

The latter requires a rich and deep understanding of the subject, its connections and relations in order to respond to all aspects of pupils’ needs. The more that you teach the more opportunity there is to practise connecting the mathematics.
