an activity i devised so that the children could practise listening to the maths vocab relating to 2d shape. I have used it also as a group/class barrier game- where the children must listen and then follow various instructions. older pupils have made up their own questions or instructions for other pupils to follow.
Print off onto card. Cut up into separate cards and share around the class. Children read out the cards in order, learning properties of 2D and 3D shapes and angle facts as they go. They love being timed and challenging themselves to beat their previous time.
The cards can also be used with smaller groups for example: having several cards each - (the winner is the first to use all their cards) or working together to find the next card from them all face-up on the table - (either cooperatively or in competition with each other to 'win' cards)
Very basic whieboard and three simple investigation sheets around the properties of 3D shapes. \n\nMinions have made statements about 3D shapes and the children need to investigate whether they are true. \n\nL3 but could be adapted to L4 - I am using them with my bottom set year 5s.
A brilliant collection of level 6 revision worksheets to help pupils revise the whole maths curriculum at level 6. The questions are laid out in a grid pattern to provide opportunities to make the lessons more fun and engaging with different games. Full instructions included.

Numeracy Ninjas is a free Key Stage 3 numeracy intervention designed to fill gaps in students’ basic mental calculation strategies and also to empower them with the numeracy skills and fluency required to fully access GCSE Maths concepts when they move to Key Stage 4 study.
Furthermore, through growth mindsets and the promotion of regular practise, we want to ensure students’ perception of maths is positive and one in which they take pride and enjoyment.
Numeracy Ninjas is a project driven by the belief that all students can leave school functionally numerate. We aim to put the right resources into the hands of talented maths teachers, completely for free, in order to make this happen.
Click the weblink to download the worksheets for an investigation of how varying the m and c coefficients of y = mx + c translate the straight line graph. I've found this to be a great investigation that makes for a good (or outstanding ;-) ) lesson. Ideal for KS3 and KS4 students.
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).
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives:
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle.
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.

I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
