A 39 page resource of the revision cards/activities I have used with my classes when finishing topics or when revising for exams. Included in the resource are templates for you/your students to create your own revision cards. There are over 10 different revision cards to create/use. I have also provided examples/pictures of cards I have made, and some they have created too! All instructions to create each card are included in the resource.<br />

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.
This a complete set of lessons on factorising quadratic expressions.<br />
Starter includes expanding single and double brackets, all answers included<br />
Then, a nice 'Products and Sums' task where students, on mini whiteboards, find which numbers have a product of ... and a sum of... .<br />
LOs, before examples for you to cover with your class on each permutation of signs in the brackets once factorised - a very scaffolded approach to suit lower ability students.<br />
All answers included for questions posed to students.<br />
Other starter activity is to find pairs of expressions that match before continuing with the series of lessons.<br />
Finally, a 'My favourite No' (see my blog mrcollinsmaths.blogspot.co.uk) plenary task to review students learning.
A couple of lessons introducing metric and imperial measures and their symbols. It then moves onto estimating and measuring lengths, before finishing with conversions between different measures of length (L5).<br />
Borrow fromthe scientists a set of 1m rulers to add a kinesthetic aspect to the measuring. You may even set a mini-competition for most accurate estimates.<br />
As always follow me @boostprogress and leave feedback and comments.
Four booklets over 36 pages covering transformations (excluding negative and fractional scale factors). A second copy of these booklets containing answers is also included. The booklets cover doing and describing, of course, and they really allow learners to build their skills from a very basic level. All work can be completed in the booklets.
A GCSE Foundation Maths PowerPoint presentation I created from some revision worksheets I use. It contains slides on how to answer all the types of questions that may come up in the foundation exam. It was created with AQA and Edexcel (foundation) in mind, but may be suitable for other exam boards too. <br />
Additionally, could be good revision for Higher GCSE students too. I use it with my high KS3 Students as they are more than capable understanding the material.<br />
I have split it up into four areas: Number, Algebra, Data/statistics, and Shape/Space/Measures. <br />
All funds raised by the sale of this resource will be donated to the NSPCC.<br />

A collection of multiple choice quizzes. Cover most KS3 and KS4 topics. Good for revision or to be chopped up and used as starters or plenaries in other PowerPoint's. Also good if you accidentally pack away 5 minutes early and need a filler or kids turn up from assembly late and your lessons gone out of the window.
Three sheets varying from basic up to difficult.Angles 1 - lines, around a point, triangles.Angles 2 - parallel lines, polygons.Angles 3 - circle theorems.Each QR code links to a song where the band or song contains either a number or colour and they must find the final code. Could lead onto questioning and explanations as to how they arrived at their answer.
Math Warm-up or Early Finishers Activity - Defuse the Bomb - 10 Number Activity.
This number activity will get your students thinking and using problem solving skills. Perfect as an early finishers activity for upper elementary or middle school students.
This excellent PowerPoint presentation takes the pupils through the basic information needed to understand what triangles are, how to name them and how to prove that the angle sum of a triangle is 180 degrees. It is suitable for Years 4, 5 & 6.
Children can plot their own quadrants in their books or have a copy of the one on the sheet.
They start by plotting their 4 shapes (one into each quadrant), using the coordinates given.
Then they translate the shapes either by one instruction or by two.
Finally they can write the coordinates of the new shape.
A lesson that involves using basic 2D shapes to create Olympic pictures. This activity is differentiated by outcome so is easily suited to a range of abilities, but is most suitable for Year2-Year4 pupils to introduce/reinforce 2D shape knowledge.
Pupils will be required to identify basic 2D shapes and recognise the properties of these. It can be used at any point, as an introduction to 2D shapes, to reinforce knowledge or as a useful assessment activity.
This lesson is designed to be fairly flexible and can be adapted quite easily for independent or paired work, or even group work on a larger scale. Work produced can also be recorded in books, on a separate worksheet or makes a very eye-catching class display. Also great as an SEN activity as the work created and images used can be very high contrast and bold and this is an enjoyable, creative, shape activity that encourages a lot of shape vocabulary and discussion.
The lesson file includes;
Introduction - with advice and instructions for carrying out the activity, based on my experience of this lesson.
Powerpoint – the powerpoint presentation with examples of more complex Olympic shape pictures and suggestions for sports to recreate. Step-by-step instructions for the pupil. A slide for recording information if the pupil is doing this in their books rather than using the worksheet provided. And an extension activity.
Worksheet – A worksheet that can be stuck in books or used as part of a class display.
Template resource sheet – pupils need access to accurately drawn shapes. This sheet has images to print and cut-out for templates. If you already have shape templates to draw around they can be used.
If different shapes are needed or different sizes pupils will have to create their own template for these.
A bonus set of images for an Olympic display that can be enlarged as needed and printed.
2D Shapes for KS1 has triangle, square,rectangle,circle,pentagon and hexagon, posters and flashcards and templates for tracing ( trace the shape, trace the house, the bus, the boat, the face) and match the shape.
