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 />
*** please message me via TES community if you have any questions regarding technical settings***

This is a booklet I created for my Y12 and Y13 students to give them support. It includes:<br />
- self assessment grammar ticklist <br />
- numbers<br />
- useful words & phrases to improve writing é speaking<br />
- conjugation of all key tenses<br />
- direct and indirect object pronouns<br />
- adjectives – endings é position in sentence<br />
- useful websites<br />
I also included the section of the exam board's specification which gives information on the topics and assessment of the AS é A2 courses along with the mark schemes for the writing and speaking exams. You could also add vocab sheets for each topic from whichever exam board you use.
Complete SPaG lesson designed to meet the new 2014 curriculum which contains: starter activity, which generates pronouns; quick yet clear teaching input, via the PowerPoint; engaging learning activities, which are differentiated by through 2 extension activities; and 2 fun plenary games which are designed to make this somewhat dry aspect of grammar fun and engaging. Answers to the work included as well in clearly explained teachers' notes.
This pack contains <br />
- 14 worksheets<br />
- A Powerpoint of the slides for use in class<br />
- Encourage students to explore rotational and reflective symmetry using patterns based on Rangoli, traditional Indian patterns often seen at festivals such as Divali.<br />
- Pupils can design their own patterns on both square and hexagonal grids.<br />
They can be used individually, and are equally valuable to supplement existing teaching materials, for<br />
• Homework • Reinforcement • Extension work • Mixed-age environments.
With these A-Z creative thinking task cards, students are able to enrich their knowledge and progress further. <br /><br />
<br /><br />
Perfect for those who finish early or morning activities as the children come through the door, you can exercise the children's brains quickly. They are fun and quirky and the children love them.<br /><br />

Four tasks per alphabet letter and prompts and questions.
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.
Using stages rather than levels, this is a reference sheet for each year group from 1 to 6 (with each stage being in line with year group expectations). Statements are taken directly from the 2014 Curriculum, split across the stages, with the added bonus of possible examples for each statement. I ran the original version of this in school and found variation among teacher assessments, hence the new addition of examples to support consistency and progress across the school.
Grid method template - designed to allow chn to concentrate on the process of the grid method rather than be distracted by correct layout.
Differentiated 3 ways with a blank template for generation of own questions.
Appropriate for Y2, 3 or 4 Chn learning the grid method for the first time.
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.*
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
This is an introduction to balanced number sentences and challenges children's thinking about thinking of number sentences more creatively.
Once you have gone through the LO and Success criteria, children are taught that number sentences need to be balanced but the order of the question and answer is irrelevant. Children are then exposed to number sentences such as 5+6=3+8. On whiteboards, children can think of their own balanced number sentences using a range of operations.
There is a link on the slide to an activity from the Nrich website called which symbol. An excellent interactive activity or if you prefer, print it out and let children work on it independently.
The last two slides introduce brackets and and how they can affect the answer.
The activity is differentiated into Mild, Spicy and Hot.
This is a problem-solving investigation linked to multiplication and multiples. The Zios and Zepts activity is from Nrich.
The lesson starts by asking children to talk about multiplication related vocabulary to their partner and feedback.
The starter involves children reading several definitions and children to match to the key word.
Then read through the Nrich problem and explore different ways to solve. I have mentioned drawings, numicon, multilink and number sentences. Feel free to add any other resources. Number lines would be another option.
