This is a full lesson based on 80 mins but could be easily altered to suit your lessons. There is a countdown style settling starter followed by the learning objectives slide. This is followed by the lessons starter which is a multiplication square. There are example slides that go through how to use BIDMAS followed by the notes to put into books and a set of differentiated questions. The extra practice is a match up activity with blank cards that enable students to think about how to make questions. The plenary is an exit ticket that can be printed to use.
When showing the questions, if you click on the millionaire symbol in top right corner the answer will appear. I use this as an individual or group game with the pupils having A,B,C,D cards which they show. If they get the answer right then then gain those points otherwise they move onto the next question - this way everyone keeps playing and the winner is the highest score at the end.
This game is also very easy to adapt if you use for any topic. Grateful for any comments or copies of any versions you might create. Enjoy
Colourful map on a grid with instructions using clockwise and anticlockwise 90 degree turns to reach a destination.
Blank grid provided to progress and create their own maps giving directions like the ones they have used.
A blank grid using the first quadrant. Using co-ordinates in a game - preferably a paired game. Print one page out per person playing. They have to plot the boats themselves and add colours if they want. The players take it in turn to sink the others ship. Competitive maths :)

I created this code breaking maths lesson for an Ofsted observation. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and had so much fun (whilst still learning).
The children are told that they have been selected by the local police to solve a crime. Unfortunately, all of the money from the school office has been stolen and an artist impression of the suspects has been provided. The children must crack the secret police codes to elimate the innocent suspects (cross them off) and reveal the final two suspects. Once this has been completed the last clue is placed on the IWB. Children get a reward for helping the police!
I have differentiated the 4 ways questions (HIPPO - the highest, MOUSE - the second highest, HA - third highest, LA - lowest) but they could be adapted to any year group! I have also included the lesson plan and PowerPoint to help clarify the task. Enjoy!
1st answer = MAN
2nd answer = HAT
3rd answer = BEARD
4th answer = GLASSES
5th answer = MOUSTACHE
6th answer = GINER
2 SUSPECTS LEFT = Kenny and Eric
THIEF IS = KENNY
*PLEASE NOTE I HAVE ADDED 2 ADDITIONAL DIFFERENTIATED SHEETS AND A POWERPOINT*
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
Worksheets suitable for 7-9 year olds a lot of them with 3 differentiated abilities.
I have now included a large number of other word problems in this resource suitable for year 3/4 and could obviously be adapted for other year groups.
