Differentiated 3 ways and easy to edit. Good for introducing line graphs, used with Y6 pupils being introduced and was very effective.
Update Jan 2013 - MA task is no longer frequency. HA task made more challenging.
I used this after I had taken the students to a computer room to investigate straight line graphs.
Before they begin they need to should have discovered the following in the ICT room but may need reminding about
1. the y intercept
2. The steeper lines have a larger number before the x
3. Lines that slope down have negative numbers before the x
4. Rules of horizontal & vertical lines
A series of posters covering all of the non-fiction genres. I've also included some basic information on writing introductions and conclusions. Perfect for Y6 on the run up to the dreaded SATs. Have included PDF file AND publisher file in case you want to edit anything :)
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation.
This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes

'exactly' questions and 'at least' questions), conditional probability. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.
