Progression step 2 Planning for the future Our next task: Planning our class trip One group will go to theatre. One group will go to a museum. One group will go to a theme park.
Planning for the future How will we gather this information? How will this information help us plan? How many children are going to each trip. How many tickets to buy for the museum/theatre/theme park. How many lunches to prepare. Arranging our transport.
Progression step 3 Planning for the future It is 10 years after our town was built. We want to find out what to plan for our town’s future. So we’re going to hold a census! We need to think about: What questions will we ask? What data do we want to gather? How will we use this to help planning?
Planning for the future Our questions, and why we need the information which the answers will give us: How many people live in the town? We need this information to plan services, such as hospitals, schools, etc. How many people live in each flat/house? We need this information to help plan the town’s future housing. Why do we need to know people’s ages? We need this information to plan for schools, health and future housing needs. Why do we need to know how people travel to school and work? We need this information to help with transport planning.
Planning for the future Year 6 Let’s look at how our town’s population has grown over the course of 10 years.

Planning for the future The school in our local town is a two-form entry. This means that there are up to 30 children in each class, and up to 60 children in each year group. The results of our census show us that there are nearly 330 children aged up to 3 years in the town.
Planning for the future Let’s discuss: How might this impact on our planning for the future? What do you think will need to change? And why? What do you think the school should do for its classes in the near future? Can you think of other changes the local government might need to plan for? What impact will this have on the school?
Planning for the future Let’s fill in our thoughts together: What changes will be made? What might the impact be? What does the new data show us? What will we need to spend money on? What do we need to plan ahead for?
Planning for the future Our next task: Create a plan for the school in our town over the next two years. Think about: Will the number of classes in some year groups have increased? Will we need more teachers? Will we need more space?
Progression 1 Progression step Step 1 Planning for the future When do you count? Can you think of anyone who does lots of counting? Why do they need to count?
Planning for the future Counting helps us prepare for almost anything we want to do in the future. Can we think of examples where we need to count before we can plan?
