Shapes

This SMART Notebook file explains how to categorise 2D and 3D shapes as well as how to calculate the area and perimeter of shapes. Finding lines of symmetry and drawing reflections is also included in this file. ClassLab activities help pupils to consolidate their understanding about how to sort 2D and 3D shapes as well as drag and drop activity.

Symmetrical Letters For Display Boards

Symmetrical Letters For Display Boards

Letters that can be cut out and used as bunting or for titles on display boards. Each letter shows both its rotational symmetry and its line symmetry. The letters are colour-coded so that those of the same symmetry have the same colour and background :-) Perfect for The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

FIFA World Cup 2018 - Comprehension & Maths Activities

FIFA World Cup 2018 - Comprehension & Maths Activities

COMPREHENSION This is a comprehension I made for my year 4 class. There are three different sets: one that can be used like a booklet, where the text and questions are on the same page with mostly retrieval questions one where the text is separate to the questions and questions are a mix of retrieval and more higher order including vocabulary one where the text is separate to the questions and questions are varied from giving evidence from the text to vocabulary questions etc. I think it can be used with high year 2 as well as KS2. The actual information text is attached as reading sheet. Both in word and PDF MATHS This resource consists of the following five mostly differentiated activities related to the World Cup: Problem-solving lesson with notebook and 3 differentiated sheets. Children design new football kit for their favourite national team consisting of tshirts, shorts (and socks) and find all possibilities of combining them when using 2 (3) colours. Bar chart lesson. Children use data from a Workd Cup table and put it into a bar chart. Differentiated. First bar chart in ones up to 6 and children enter amount of world cups won by different nations. Second bar chart in twos up to 6 and children enter amount of world cups won by different nations. Third bar chart in tens up to 230 where children enter amount of goals scored in world cups for several nations. All bar charts have at least 5 follow-up questions. First two probably more suited to KS1, last one to KS2. Symmetry activity. Children use pictures of flags of all participating teams which are included and sort them into symmetrical and not symmetrical. Included is another sheet on explaining our reasoning - choose two non-symmetrical flags - what would need to be changed so they are symmetrical, explain. Sorting Activity: Children use pictures of flags of all participating teams which are included and sort them using their own criteria into a Venn or Carroll diagram. A quick activity on comparing two flags - how are they the same and how are they different. One activity where children use information on who won the world cup when and put the countries in chronological order by year. One scaffolded sheet and one not scaffolded. All activities attached as word and pdf files in case the word files don’t open properly. I SELL BOTH SEPARATELY AS WELL IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAVE MONEY.

Coordinates Castle Picture (Plotting coordinates on a grid to create a castle)

Powerpoint and worksheet plotting coordinates on a grid (-10 to +10 axis). The picture builds up to create a castle image. Suitable for years 6 to 9 depending on ability. Once coloured in, this activity is great for making a classroom wall display. I have used this in years 7,8 and 9 they all enjoyed it, just allow more time for the younger ones to finish. Extension idea: Create your own image with coordinates on a blank grid for other pupils to try.

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Most suitable for key stage 3. Looks at geometry in Islamic Art. Students then create their designs using either compasses (higher groups) or isometric/square grids (may be better with lower groups). Probably good for end of module/term lesson Resources in the lesson gathered from all over the place, but thought it would be useful to have in one place as a single lesson.

Congruent Triangles

Congruent Triangles

Congruent Triangles 1.Explanation sheets for Describing the Congruence of TWO or** MORE TRIANGLES**. 2.Differentiated worksheet with answer sheet . I have included two activities. One I would use for lower ability pupils that need to see that by rotating, sliding or flipping a triangle to overlap another shows congruence. The other describes the rules. Each activity has the same assessment of learning activities but these could be used individually as their are two should you wish to use both activities on different days. 3.Plenary Mix and Match Game forDescribing the Congruence of TWO or** MORE TRIANGLES** based on the activity.Game suitable for Starter/Plenary/Revision/Link activity Describing the Congruence of TWO or** MORE TRIANGLES**… I hope that it works for you. I would go through the materials first and have an idea of how you will present it. You will need data projector and laptop.

KS2 Maths Bundle (Geometry)

KS2 Maths Bundle (Geometry)

Topic-focused SATs questions and fully-worked solutions for the GEOMETRY strand. Click 👉 tes.com/…/bundles… for booklet bundles of the other strands.<hr>I have put all my GEOMETRY booklets together in this one convenient download. I hope that this is helpful to you.<hr> The questions in these booklets are in the style of actual SATs questions and are designed to be printed as A4 or A5. KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful. I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented. Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined). I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃 <hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

Union Jack Flag Symmetry

Union Jack Flag Symmetry

This is a printable activity with the option of printing with grid lines, without grid lines, in colour or in black and white. Developed initially for the Harry-Meghan royal wedding, but it is a standalone activity that is useful in its own right, not simply because of a royal wedding (although, that gives the perfect excuse to use it!) This uses a triangular shaped flag, that might be used for bunting - it could be displayed as bunting on a maths working wall once completed! Tip: N:rich has a nice activity on flag symmetry that could precede this or follow this lesson. https://nrich.maths.org/7749 (alternatively, download their ‘getting started’ advice, for questions that could be used to enrich this activity.) 50% of the author proceeds of this purchase will go to our partner school in Sierra Leone.

Triangle properties revision activity

Triangle properties revision activity

An always, sometimes, never activity looking at various properties of triangles (angles, sides, perimeter, area, symmetry and a few more). Includes a wonderfully sneaky (but potentially confusing!) example of triangle area sometimes being the product of the lengths of all three sides. A good way of stimulating discussion, revising a range of topics and exposing misconceptions. Please review and give feedback, whether you like the activity or whether you don’t!

Maths: Lexicology Across the Curriculum - Bingo.

There are eight different bingo cards in this resource. I do not call out the affixes (prefixes and suffixes), I elicit the name of the affix through a series of concept questions. This is a great resource to improve knowledge and understanding of prefixes and suffixes which will ultimately develop a Mathematical Lexicon. Bingo as a ten minute starter creates a fantastic learning environment. For more resources visit my website www.lexicologyforreading.co.uk
