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. Another fab teaching and learning resource from www.greatmathsteachingideas.com
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.
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

Calling all Year 5 and Year 6 primary teachers (and KS3 maths teachers too!) Do your students struggle with the new SATs maths arithmetic tests? Then use this Excel arithmetic test worksheet creator to create UNLIMITED practice tests for your pupils. I used the 2016 sample paper as a basis for these questions.
We used these tests for a year and it really boosted our arithmetic scores for the SATs tests in May 2016.
It couldn't be simpler to use.
Open the file in Excel (MAKE SURE THAT YOU "ENABLE MACROS") and it will produce a different test EVERY TIME! If you need to produce a different test, either open up the file again OR just press the "Randomise" button (or F9 on your keyboard). If you want to just print the questions, press the "Print Questions" button. If you want to print the answers, press the "Print Answers" button.
Please note that you need Excel to use this file (Tested on Excel 2007).
If you like this resource and enough people buy it and comment then I will make another version based on the actual 2016 SATs maths arithmetic test.
