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 super kinaesthetic resource for teaching about multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. Pupils have a template worksheet and a set of number cards. They have to move the cards left or right depending on what operation they are doing.
