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***

A GCSE Foundation Maths PowerPoint presentation I created from some revision worksheets I use. It contains slides on how to answer all the types of questions that may come up in the foundation exam. It was created with AQA and Edexcel (foundation) in mind, but may be suitable for other exam boards too. <br />
Additionally, could be good revision for Higher GCSE students too. I use it with my high KS3 Students as they are more than capable understanding the material.<br />
I have split it up into four areas: Number, Algebra, Data/statistics, and Shape/Space/Measures. <br />
All funds raised by the sale of this resource will be donated to the NSPCC.<br />

A few answered questions about the up and coming solar eclipse on Friday 20th march.<br />
All text and images have been put together by me. <br />
The images of the Sun, Earth and Moon are not to scale.<br />
The angle of tilt of the Moon's orbital path is drawn to illustrate the point not accurate to the real movement.<br />
The answers to the questions are my interpretations of fact learnt over the years and cannot therefore be sourced. I am a qualified Physics teacher with 17 years experience of teaching.
An extremely useful resource that has almost unlimited application.<br />
I've taken the GCSE Maths specifications for 2015 and converted them into MS Word tables, landscape and portrait, mostly fitting on to one side for each area - number, algebra, etc.<br />
They can be used for planning lessons, schemes of work, cutting and pasting into lesson aims and objectives, or for recording pupil/learner achievement on each objective.<br />
In Word they are very adaptable, and columns can be added as required, for dates etc.
This a complete set of lessons on factorising quadratic expressions.<br />
Starter includes expanding single and double brackets, all answers included<br />
Then, a nice 'Products and Sums' task where students, on mini whiteboards, find which numbers have a product of ... and a sum of... .<br />
LOs, before examples for you to cover with your class on each permutation of signs in the brackets once factorised - a very scaffolded approach to suit lower ability students.<br />
All answers included for questions posed to students.<br />
Other starter activity is to find pairs of expressions that match before continuing with the series of lessons.<br />
Finally, a 'My favourite No' (see my blog mrcollinsmaths.blogspot.co.uk) plenary task to review students learning.
A couple of lessons introducing metric and imperial measures and their symbols. It then moves onto estimating and measuring lengths, before finishing with conversions between different measures of length (L5).<br />
Borrow fromthe scientists a set of 1m rulers to add a kinesthetic aspect to the measuring. You may even set a mini-competition for most accurate estimates.<br />
As always follow me @boostprogress and leave feedback and comments.
Activity to draw a Pie Chart clasifying the charactors from eastenders. there is a question sheet (A4, possibly needing to be blown up to A3) and a guided worksheet for those who need more support with the task (2 pages of A4, to be copied side by side onto A3)
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
Featured in the TES Newsletter. Adventure game in which students answer probability questions in order to rescue a princess. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: OR and AND questions, complementary events, combined events (inc. 'exactly' questions and 'at least' questions), conditional probability. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
RECOMMENDED by the TES panel. Adventure game in which students answer averages questions in order to progress through a haunted house. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 8 questions on mean, median, mode, mean and median from ungrouped and grouped frequency tables. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
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*
