S.O.D.A.Start Of Day Activity Morning registration mathematics activity Aligned to the Renewed Framework for Mathematics Stoke-on-Trent Primary Maths Team
S.O.D.A.Start Of Day Activity WHAT IS IT? 10 mathematics questions per day based on the Renewed Framework for Mathematics. Questions 1-5 consolidate maths from the previous unit. Questions 6-10 are based on the previous year’s coverage of the next unit (following Block sequence A B C D E). This will support you in pitching the learning appropriately for the next unit and gathering evidence for APP. WHAT IS IT NOT? SODA is NOT intended to be used during any part of the daily mathematics lesson. It is an ADDITIONAL resource to support the CONSOLIDATION of learning which has taken place previously.
S.O.D.A.Start Of Day Activity WHEN? During the registration period at the start of the day. Pupils could record their answers in a ‘SODA’ book. Go through the questions and discuss strategies the children used with the pupils during registration. Ensure that you model the correct mathematical vocabulary and always encourage the children to use it correctly. HOW? Use SODA as it stands or personalise the questions for your pupils by adapting / replacing them.
