Table Splat! (Times Tables Game)

Table Splat! (Times Tables Game)

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.* Save money when bought as part of a bundle.

Sequence Ratio Worksheet - Differentiated

Sequence Ratio Worksheet - Differentiated

This is a nice activity to introduce the idea of ratio, by using sequences. Suitable for KS2. I found it useful to use pieces of card (e.g. 1 yellow for every 2 blue) to visually demonstrate beforehand (using volunteers - each holding the correct ratio) and show how to record this into a table on the whiteboard as you go, before using this resource as the main activity. I also allowed children to use counters at their table to aid them whilst completing the worksheet, as this was very beneficial to some learners.

Maths investigation - Dice score

Maths investigation - Dice score

A Japanese theme game. The children play the game which leads on to - Investigating the frequency score of 2 dice. (What are the best numbers to choose to help you win the game next time?) Lessons include find the odd one out starter activities, success criteria and worksheets. There are also questions to encourage the children’s mathematical thinking. My class find it fun to make up a quick Sumo dance… where they bow to each other before and after each game.

Understanding the role of the equals sign

Understanding the role of the equals sign

I couldn't find any materials on this when I needed to teach my year 3 class what the equals sign REALLY meant. I have included the lesson plan I used, the 3 differentiated worksheets and a Powerpoint I made. Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.) UPDATE: I have added a more challenging resource for year 3/4
