Children share the frogs onto the lily pads to work out each calculation. Building up division by 2 and the process of sharing. There are no remainders in this activity as it intended to introduce the children to the concept of fair sharing in the very early stages of division.
This sheet aims to give practice in using the 3 timestable mentally. I could never find a resource like this that fitted my needs so I created one. I have found it useful for teaching the timestable and for revision.
A storyboard grid to explain the important events in Jewish observation of the festival of Shabbat . Children draw a picture to go with the caption in each box. I had access to a film clip of a Shabbat celebration that I found on Teacher Tube but as I no longer have access to that googled and found another. Should be easy to find a clip that works within your school's ICT filters.
Interactive whiteboard activity to assist in the teaching of 24 hour time. Children match the analogue clock to the 24hr digital clock. They need to drag the digital time to same analogue time. I use this as an introduction to teaching 24 hour time.
Interactive whiteboard activity where the children have to read the scales. The children can also be asked to mark specific weight on the on-screen scales. In whiteboard format so that it can be used as a teaching aid.
Flip- chart moves through stages of multiplication as repeated addition and then an array. Can be made more practical (fun) by having a collection of small pairs of socks and lots of real life examples of an array. Also children love the chocolate challenge!

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*
A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.
Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.
Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.
*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*
