Numeracy Assessment Intractive Spreadsheet for Level 1 GCSE

Numeracy Assessment Intractive Spreadsheet for Level 1 GCSE

This is part of a complete numeracy package called ‘Lighthouses’, the contents of which was developed with colleagues in the Millais Alliance Teaching School. The download is an Excel workbook. There are nine spreadsheets available in total, covering key numeracy topics throughout GCSE. There is a spreadsheet available covering all of the spreadsheets. See my other resources. This resourse is just one of them. The idea is that the questions can be done without a calculator, and there are helpful record sheets included in the package. Click the rubber to start, enter in your answers in the yellow boxes and click the black rectangle to mark it all. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to ‘Manual’ and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the ‘rubber’ will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel’s Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart’s content. After all, practice makes perfect!

My mini reviews

My mini reviews

A simple but effective way of assessing whether or not your students have grasped a topic. I have found that sometimes my class complete an assessment and it turns out none of them fully understood one of the skills on the test! But by this point it is difficult to go back and reteach this or I don’t have the time. Especially if we teach a 6 week long topic (which we do in year 7 and 8 as we follow maths mastery). This is a quick way to check they have understood - I usually do it as plenary to the lesson a starter the next lesson. I feel a plenary works better because it informs my planning for the next lesson. I give all the class the same question testing a specific skill. I collect them in before students stick them into their books, making them very quick to mark. I mark the question and give them specific maths focused feedback at the bottom. I also award stamps based on their effort (usually how much working out they showed and how clear their answer is). Then hand them back the next lesson for students to stick into their books. This is an ongoing bank that I am adding to as I teach different topics so I will add more as I go - but you can see they’re easy to create yourself! Enjoy!

Times Tables Tests up to 12 x 12 including related division facts

Times Tables Tests up to 12 x 12 including related division facts

This times tables pack includes 3 different tests for each of the times tables from 2 x up to 12 x. For each times table, there are 3 separate tests (Tests A, B, C) comprising 24 multiplication and division questions. Test A and B feature multiplication questions on the left hand side and all related division facts questions on the right hand side, with a separate column for them to check and mark their tests. Ideally, you would give Test A on day 1 and record the child’s score and time taken to complete the test. Then on day 2, you would practise the multiplication and division facts through chanting / games / songs / bingo etc and on day 3, the children would take Test B and try to beat their previous score and time. On Day 4, you could practise again, then on Day 5, the children would take Test C, which has all the multiplication and division facts in a randomised order. This way, a different times table could be learned each week and revisited as often as necessary. Another useful way of preparing children for the KS2 Sats and upcoming Year 4 tests!

Add 2 or more fractions - Year 4 Mastery

Worksheet to support Block 3 (Year 4 Spring term) of the White Rose Small Steps Progression. The children are given some pictorial representations of fractions to add at first. They then progress to adding several fractions with the same denominator. More able children could be challenged to express the answers as improper fractions and mixed numbers. There is a further open-ended, reasoning challenge to extend able pupils.

Using proportions

Using proportions

A worksheet that uses exchange rates to embed the idea of proportions and ratio. The graph drawing task then allows you to introduce ‘directly proportional’.

Area of a triangle

Area of a triangle

A complete lesson on areas of triangles. I always teach this after parallelograms so that you can derive the rule, so probably not suitable if you don’t teach it this way. The questions have real variety, starting with pupils measuring to ensure they correctly identify base and height, before moving on to picking the required information from a not-to-scale diagram. Includes highly visual examples, printable worksheets and answers. Please review it if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
