Four Operations (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division) lesson plans, slides and resources
Complete set of planning, slides and worksheets to provide 14 lessons on the four operations, working between written methods, mental methods and also working on the order of operations. This has been written with Year 6 in mind but the resources are easily adaptable for other year groups.

The worksheets have written with mastery in mind and so follow the following structure:
Worksheet One - Works on practise and fluency
Worksheet Two - Practise, fluency and reasoning
Worksheet Three - Practise, fluency, reasoning and problem solving
Worksheet Four - Practise, fluency, reasoning and problem solving (This is a spare worksheet should children finish problem solving on worksheet three)

Differentiation is achieved through self-assessment of own abilities to choose which worksheet they do. The worksheets will be clear in which is LA, MA and HA.

Lesson 1 and 2 - Column addition and subtraction
Lesson 3 and 4 - Same as Lesson 1 and 2 but with decimal numbers
Lesson 5 and 6 - Adding and subtracting mentally
Lesson 7 and 8 - Written multiplication
Lesson 9 and 10 - Written division
Lesson 11 and 12 - Mental multiplication
Lesson 13 and 14 - Order of operations

These have had great success in previous lessons and challenge and stretch children of all abilities.
