I used this with a mixed year 5 and 6 class. It's just a simple worksheet that gives pupils practice on converting between units of length. I explain the rule to them and then they got on with the worksheet for practice.
Revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! For use on pupil shared areas, all questions modeled on past SATs. <br />
Great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. <br />
This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests.<br />
Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. <br />
Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! <br />
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions!!- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)<br />

Designed to meet the new 2014 curriculum, this engaging yet challenging complete lesson comes with: starter activity, fun and thorough lesson input and 2 fun plenary activities to choose from (a game and peer-assessment) all on the included PowerPoint. The enjoyable yet challenging learning activities have 3 levels of differentiation and are simply explained in the full teachers' notes, which also include answers for peer-assessment. This fantastic lesson teaches children what modal verbs are and how to use them in writing and has been created with enjoyment and challenge in equal measures. A brilliant way to easily teach a difficult learning objective.
This unit of work is presented as an illustrated booklet that follows each chapter of David Walliams book - Gangsta Granny. It has been designed to help developing readers engage with and extend their comprehension of the story through a range of activities including; finding answers to set questions, word search, poetry, creative and report writing and drawing. It looks sensitively at the exploration of an eleven year old boy's emotions as he experiences the love and loss of a close relative. It also gives us a humorous glimpse into the shady realms of 'cat burglary'. It is one of a series of my David Walliams booklets. Good for guided reading and extended reading homework. Illustrations used are by 'Openclipart'. There is also an original poem about a child's Granny - can be used to encourage pupils to create their own.

An extremely useful resource that has almost unlimited application.<br />
I've taken the GCSE Maths specifications for 2015 and converted them into MS Word tables, landscape and portrait, mostly fitting on to one side for each area - number, algebra, etc.<br />
They can be used for planning lessons, schemes of work, cutting and pasting into lesson aims and objectives, or for recording pupil/learner achievement on each objective.<br />
In Word they are very adaptable, and columns can be added as required, for dates etc.
From the gory details of mummification to the technicalities of controlling the flooding of 'The Nile', there is a wealth of fascinating information contained in these songs. 'Gods and Goddesses' and 'Hieroglyphics' are featured and Tutankhamun gets more than a passing mention in two songs, one more light-hearted than the other! 'Pyramids', 'The Sphinx' and 'Toys and Games' round up this whistle-stop tour of Ancient Egypt!<br />
This set of songs on 'Ancient Egypt' consists of:<br />
* 20 mp3 files, with both vocal and piano backing tracks<br />
* a PDF of the music and lyrics<br />
* an illustrated PowerPoint of each song for use with digital projectors and whiteboards<br />
* a separate Word document of the lyrics.<br />
No licence is required for performing any of my material, and the music and lyrics may be copied freely for use within or by your school.
A very helpful aid for converting back and forth the 3 main measures of Capacity, Mass and Length.
Includes: ml to L, g to Kg, m to Km.
Objective: I can convert between different units of metric measure (for example, kilometre and metre; centimetre and metre; centimetre and millimetre; gram and kilogram; litre and millilitre).
This is an activity once you have taught children about quadrilaterals. For this activity, children will need to know about square, rectangle, rhombus, parallelogram and trapezium.
I would give children time to explore these shapes practically first and then give them this task. This is a cut-and-stick task where children have to match up the name and properties to the shape.
The Smart notebook begins by asking children to discuss/note down and vocabulary related to length. Take some feedback and then show the key vocabulary on the slides and ask them how these key words have been sorted?
Explain that learning and talking about length will require us to use lots of key vocabulary and encourage children to use them in the lesson.
Give children rulers (a range is ideal) and ask them to share what they can see.
Talk through the slide, and establish the different metric units of measure. Which unit is the smallest/biggest?
Model how to measure the length of a line using a ruler. Ask children to come up and have a practice.
There are 3 different activities for this lesson:
1)LO: to measure length accurately in centimetres and millimetres.
Measure the length of drawn pencils accurately in mm and cm and then to draw lines of certain measurements.
2)LO: to estimate / measure length using an appropriate unit of measure.
Children have a table of classroom/school items and children have to complete a table of; selecting the most appropriate unit, estimating the length; accurately measuring the line.
3)LO: to estimate / measure length using an appropriate unit of measure.
This is a learning outside the classroom task. Children are doing the same as the previous task but they select their own objects to measure around the school.
This is 4 days of progressive planning for year 4. The topic is angles, parallel and perpendicular lines. Planning includes teaching points, key questions, ideas for differentiation, description of activities and key vocabulary. Lots of links to real life. Children will be creating angles practically, identifying parallel/perpendicular lines around them and engaging in reasoning by comparing flags according to their shape/angles/properties. Activities for some of the lessons have been uploaded in my shop.
