A fantastic website resource that I've used in KS1 and KS2. It can literally be used however you wish. I&'ve used it to do times tables, number facts, multiples,factors, sums etc. It&';s a lovely plenary, and can be adapted to any maths topic.
A great resource with so many potential uses. Teachers could mark numbers and ask students to identify patterns, or ask children to continue and complete patterns... or even for quickfire games for starters and plenaries. A really useful resource!
This would be a useful plenary.
I use it in a concept attainment model for example I start by giving students three numbers that fit my set and highlight them in one colour (ie. red). I invite them to make a reasonable guess of others that might fit and if they do I colour them red also and if not they get a different colour (ie blue). As the numbers narrow down they need to start 'testing' their theory i.e I think it might be '25' because I think these numbers are all factors of 25 etc.
I have used this with sets like: even numbers, multiples, triangular numbers.
This is great with an interactive whiteboard but clicking with a mouse works well. I generally do: all right (7/7) 2 merit, a bonus merit if completed in 45 seconds. 1 merit for 6/7.\nAsk class for score - merit for the children who get the right answer. Simple and fun way of testing if students have done their homework! Basic theory is covered. Done.
I use this hundred square in Reception. The splats are for me to cover numbers up as an extra challenge and eventually for the children to use independently. There are some blank small hundred squares for children to use independently.
There are anumber of scenarios which the children could use to base their diaries on. I find often that the children don't always have ideas or can't remember what they have done over the weekend to write about. There are also extracts from other diaries. One being Anne Frank&'s diary.
Lots of my children were struggling for ideas of characters and settings. So, in order to support them and make their stories more intersting I gave these grids. Some children wanted to challenge themselves so randomly chose a character and setting and wrote a story about them. The results were amusing and interesting.
A really lovely way to introduce using commas when writing lists. I did this with myclass, I wrote descriptions of my children and the class had to guess who they were about. You'll obviously need to tweak this for your class.
Lesson plan, teaching resources and differentiated work for 3 lessons
1) Partitioning numbers into tens and units (MA hundreds)
2) Adding multiples of 10.
3) Using partitioning strategy for addition.

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.*
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: Have added a more challenging resource for year 3/4
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.
