Y6 KS2 Maths Knowledge Organiser for SATs

(69)
*This took me hours to make and I always share my resources for free. However, if you have found my knowledge organiser useful and would consider chucking a book my way (I’m trying to collect class sets for my class), I’d really appreciate it! My Amazon wishlist is here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/36JJE26YLGHYC?ref_=wl_share * EDIT: I have now added: a quiz directly linked to the KO that can be used to baseline assess children on what they already know. (I’ve used this to highlight a copy of the KO for each child so they know what to focus on) a Welsh version of the KO, kindly translated by Elen Llwyd an A3 version of the KO, adapted by Joe Cooper I have also now created a Kahoot quiz based on the knowledge organiser to help with revision - see link below. My Kahoot quiz: https://create.kahoot.it/share/year-6-maths/f89ed095-b37e-47e1-b2ee-92d4e138b603 Another Kahoot quiz: https://create.kahoot.it/details/y6-maths-knowledge/99e24f68-7add-4e88-898b-bee58275dae1 A few notes on this: This obviously doesn’t cover the entire curriculum (for one thing, it had to fit on one page!). I looked through the Year 3 - Year 6 maths objectives and picked out what requires the children to be able to recall certain information in order to solve problems in that content domain - this is what formed this knowledge organiser. Lots had to be omitted in order to fit - I made assumptions that children would (or at least SHOULD) know some of the ‘easier’ content, e.g. 100p = £1, place value, the ‘simpler’ shapes (sphere, cone, circle, rectangle) For those ‘oh look, more cramming for SATs’ people - yes, it’ll obviously be useful for SATs, but this is generally just good maths stuff that kids should know before going to secondary school, so I fully intend to use this after SATs too. This is how I plan to use it: baseline assess the children on this information (I’m going to create a ‘quiz’ soon for this), ask the children to mark their own and highlight the areas on the KO that they need to learn, photocopy a copy of each child’s for me and one to send home. Then I will regularly quiz them on it :) Let me know if there is some glaringly obvious stuff missing, or something that’s blatantly incorrect, but otherwise you don’t need to let me know if you don’t like the wording of stuff - feel free to just change it yourself for however you wish to use it. It is free, after all :) Oh, and on that note, please don’t copy and charge for this. That’s just rude. Thanks. A user named GammaRay has written something similar to this on his resources, and I’m going to use it for mine too: if you charge for your resources, then please don’t download mine. All my resources are provided on a share and share alike basis, not those seeking to derail a collaborative community.

"Silly SATs" 2020 - to mark SATs week during lockdown!

(18)
Maaria Khan (@MissKhan__) and I wanted to create some fun, silly tasks to mark SATs week this year. Monday: spelling (already created by Matt Brown - @mrbrownteach) - silly words; grammar - mark the teacher’s errors (created by me) Tuesday: reading - silly questions based on an extract about children’s manners and etiquette in the 1950s (created by me) Wednesday: arithmetic - an arithmetic treasure hunt (created for use during a local walk but could be adapted to be used around the house) (created by Maaria) Thursday: reasoning - silly maths word problems (created by Maaria) It’s all just supposed to be a bit of fun. Feel free to adapt as much or as little as you like!

The lesson plan is self explanatory - additional resources needed are 'coins&' - basically a handful of coordinates. I did this as an interview lesson so put a lot of time in the resources (had gold coins in coin bags) but it needn&';t be that fussy. The kids loved the concept of treasure hunting. I did this with year 3 but it could easily be done with year 2.

However this planning could also be used with a small guided reading group. This is a plan for roughly 6 weeks’ worth of reading lessons (23 sessions - provided you do at least 4 a week. Each session lasts about 30-40 mins). It’s definitely aimed towards Year 6, but could be adapted for a Year 5 class. I have used question starters taken from the 2016 sample SATs paper and real SATs paper to prepare children for the new reading curriculum. Each week (4 sessions) is based around a different type of question - retrieval, choice, interpret, vocabulary and 3-mark questions. I’ve included a “3-mark question” in some of the sessions and have based my example answers round the ‘APE’ (answer, prove, explain) style structure. ***It has now become apparent that ‘APE’ is far from a useful method to answer 3-mark SATs style questions. However, I’m going to keep them in the resource as I still think it’s a good way to develop children’s written responses in general.

Used this for my (successful!) interview lesson with a mixed ability class of year 4s. Lesson plan is self explanatory. Introduces concept step by step, includes pupil voice (children can self-differentiate by choosing the worksheets - I photocopied the 'support&' activity onto green and the &';challenge' activity onto yellow). Kids had a lot of fun being &'detectives&';.

Some of my mixed 3/4 class struggled with finding fractions where the numerator was higher than 1 (e.g. 2/3 of 15). They also really struggled with putting them in word problems! I created these step by step worksheets so children could see the progression, e.g. 1/3 of 15 is? 2/3 of 15 is? I have 15 sweets and I eat 2/3 of them. How many do I eat?

Codebreaker! (Subtraction using inversion)

Children get the chance to be 'detectives' by using inversion to complete the subtraction problems with the first number missing to work out the letters to crack the code! I have created a slightly more difficult version of the same activity using higher numbers.

I highly recommend the sesame street video about Hanukkah - brilliant! Then run through the PowerPoint before children complete the Menorah activity in pairs - photocopy the blank Menorah onto A3. Children must cut up the candles, on which are true or false statements about Hanukkah. They put them on one side of the Menorah depending on whether they are true or false. Challenge pupils to correct the false statements.

Shifts of formality - Y6 Greater Depth writing lesson

(25)
I made a lesson for my observation with top set year 6 - I have roughly 9 children I'll be expecting to reach the Greater Depth standard for writing by June. The lesson plan is basically the smart notebook - it walks you through the lesson step by step. The children start by watching a BBC interview and analysing the differences in the spoken English. After selecting features of formal/informal speech, the children then use what they've learnt to annotate a written conversation between a reporter and a witness to a burglary. As their consolidation activity, the children continue a narrative which includes dialogue between a head-teacher, a student and his mother. To end the lesson, share the children's work (under a visualiser if possible? or in pairs) and ask others to peer-assess - who has used what techniques, where and why?

This is great for consolidating mental maths skills for addition and subtraction. Compensating: when a number can be rounded to the nearest 10 easily, add or subtract the nearest 10 and then take-away/add back what you previously compensated Bridging: when you subtract two numbers that are close together, count on from the lowest one Number bonds: when you add two numbers, see if the units make a number bond to 10
