Rosie's Maths/Literacy Challenges

Rosie's Maths/Literacy Challenges

Rosie is a very playful, cheeky little cat. She loves to play and explore. In this pack of maths and literacy challenges, pupils are asked to answer a variety of questions that will test their mental maths and processing skills, along with short writing tasks. Perfect for starters and time-fillers, children will enjoy looking at the photos of Rosie and reading the challenges that come with them. Hopefully they will be inspired to try these activities independently, so maybe laminated copies would be ideal for your classrooms. These challenges could also act as short homework tasks.

This bundle includes 9-11 lessons based on “Persuasive Writing”. This pack includes whole lessons that have everything you need to teach the topic and genre. Every lesson has a starter, a plenary, teaching models, group work and individual writing activities and HW tasks. I have also included a handy FAR inspired assessment sheet that can be used to mark the students’ work using specific criteria that they can learn and use to make very clear progress easily, and there is also a self-assessment activity that draws on FAR marking strategies too. It’s suitable for KS3 and KS4. However, some ppts are more suited to KS4 classes and gifted (or accelerated) KS3 classes. You’ll have to make that decision based on your class’ abilities and skills.
