A self-contained game to be played in pairs.
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation.
This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes
It's back for 2017 with a fresh new look!
All 48 booster packs (over 190 pages of content!) have been updated with the Sample paper and 2016 Reasoning and Arithmetic questions. The new video tutorials on YouTube for these questions are only accessible via this resource: a MUST for all KS2 primary schools, children and parents preparing for SATs!
This resource allows a student to choose a weak topic area of theirs (personalised learning) from a menu of 48 topics and instantly opens a printable PDF of past SATs questions specific to that topic. All 48 topic PDFs are housed on Genius Maths' Google drive account which can only be accessed via this single file. All questions contain a Youtube Button next to them, so if a student needs help, they simply HIT THE YOUTUBE button to zoom off to a mini Youtube tutorial specific to that question on our Youtube channel. The Youtube channel has over 180,000 hits and rising from those who used it during the last two year's SATs.
Also included are the One-A-Day Mini Maths Vidamins for Y5 + and links to Thinking Outside the Box puzzle videos! This single PDF could easily be placed on a teacher's computer for whiteboard projection. It could be used in whole class lessons in an ICT suite or from the comfort of a student's own living room on their tablet.
Schools placing this on their own website will be giving students the ability to access and revise for their SATs from home across multiple platforms - laptops, tablets and phones.
Students could even revise on their phone on a car journey!
The school promo posters are included to help you advertise the launch of the Organiser on your school corridors/walls.
*updated 04/12/16 to include KS2 Launch assembly and parent information letter to send home.
**updated 03/03/17 to include Answer Booklet PDF. Now you can quickly check answers to all questions in the PDF, in addition to viewing solution and answer via the YouTube video.

Featured in the TES Newsletter. Adventure game in which students answer probability questions in order to rescue a princess. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: OR and AND questions, complementary events, combined events (inc. 'exactly' questions and 'at least' questions), conditional probability. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.
Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.
Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.
*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.
RECOMMENDED by the TES panel. Adventure game in which students answer averages questions in order to progress through a haunted house. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 8 questions on mean, median, mode, mean and median from ungrouped and grouped frequency tables. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
Investigation and problem solving activity in which students identify all the different pentominoes, then fit them into shapes (50 different shapes, inc. 4 rectangles, 4 squares, 17 animals, 13 pictures (inc. car, train, plane, rocket, boat), 12 other shapes (inc. cross, yin and yang, heart)).
There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.
Adventure game in which students answer KS3 circle questions in order to rescue a princess. Teacher notes and answers are provided. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: parts of a circle, circumference, area, reverse questions: given circumference, find diameter and radius; given area, find radius and diameter. Go to my profile page to see the GCSE version including arc length and sector area and check out my other games.

*UPDATED JANUARY 2017* Added a crossword puzzle with answers.
This resource pack will get your learners thinking about electricity and electric circuits. It includes:
• A lucid and logical 69-slide PowerPoint which includes many visual aids. The slides are thoughtfully animated (not over-animated) to allow opportunities for learners to participate and promote class discussions.
• Seven pages of interactive notes (scaffolded notes). These notes fit perfectly with the presentation. I find this activity keeps lower-level students engaged during the lessons while allowing differentiation for higher achievers.
• A crossword (with answers), some homework questions and a quiz.
**Just print and go! Or customize to fit the needs of your class.**
Learning objectives covered in this resources are listed below.
• By the end of these lessons, pupils should know:
1. that electricity is a form of energy.
2. that current electricity can be produced from cells, batteries or the mains
3. that there are a range of appliances in the home, which use electricity.
4. that we can represent components by symbols.
5. that current electricity flows in conductors but not in insulators.
6. that a complete path is needed from one side of the battery to the other for electricity to flow.
7. how a switch works.
8. that there are two types of circuit, series and parallel.
9. that current is measured in Amps.
10. that current is measured using an ammeter.
11. how to connect and use an ammeter.
12. that in a series circuit, the current is the same all the way round the circuit.
13. that in a parallel circuit, the current is shared but not lost or used up.
14. that the current in a series circuit depends upon the number and type of components used.
15. that a battery is a store of electrical energy.
16. that voltage is a measure of the amount of energy or push given to the current.
17. that more cells in series equals more voltage.
18. that the effect of voltage upon current and bulb brightness.
19. that an electric current causes a wire to become hot. .
20. that the bigger the current, the higher the temperature of the wire.
21. that if too much current flows, the wire will melt.
