This is a really logical resource that puts the understanding of volume and area into an exciting context. Would I like to be a giant? I remember Record Breakers with Norris and Roy, old school, thank-you Mr. Slack.
This is a really interesting investigation which gets students to think about weight, volume and ratio in order to determine whether some statements about giants are accurate. There are references to films which would really engage students and the investigation itself requires students to work with multi-link. Thank you for sharing.
Here are some activities where the pupils have to use and apply their skills.\n\nIt will support chn from moving from L3 to L4\nSimilar to SATs style questions.\n\nI have used these as morning task for my Year 6 class.\nI have photocopied them onto coloured paper and the children cut along the lines to stick each problem into their book and then they work on completing it.\n\nPlease comment if you find these useful - as not to sure whether they are worth sharing in the future or not :)
I made these little passports for year 11s who are revising/working towards their GCSE exam. You can print them on card and reduce them so each face of the passport is A6 in size. Each student has their own and then they have to collect 'stamps' (I do actually use a stamp) as they bring evidence that they have 'visited' somewhere/proved they can do something on the passport. You could offer a prize to the first person to complete their passport.
This activity is based around food shopping. Students are given a selection of products which could be distributed on entrance to the classroom. They can then use the unitary method to cancel a ratio down to use to compare the different products.
Students are then required to purchase items on the shopping list for the best value and fill in the receipt to show what they have bought. You could build on the products as the shopping list allows for 'an extra treat'.
A game of Top Trumps in which students have to compare test scores for different Simpsons character children. They have to compare between FDP in character's own skills and then across characters in order to trump their opponents.
Best played in twos or threes.
Give these cards to students as they enter a room. Label the tables with the large number pages. Students need to work out their card in order to decide where to sit. Once seated, students can then work on finding other ways of making their number. There's something quite nice about the fact the same number can be made in lots of different ways. This is quite a nice way of showing progress in a lesson, if say, students can't work out where to sit at the beginning of the lesson, but, by the end (having explored order of operations) can work it out.
A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives: <br />
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.<br />
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle. <br />
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.<br />
Thank you for downloading. Please look for the large files (Flip -chart and PDF) which contain all the resources without the Paws & Clause watermark. <br />

I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.<br />
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.<br />
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
