I have these on the classroom wall and have been asking students to point to any skill they think they have just used or should be using.
Alternatively, slides 2-14 can be printed on a single sheet, and stuck in a homework book or excercise book, and children can date when they think they've used a skill for a particular piece of work.
The first file is to create a display with VCOP in large initials then the words Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation to put up next to them as a large visual reminder. The four colours were picked because highlighters are available in similar colours - you can then highlight examples of each in the different colours. You can also use these colours to highlight words in a text document. The second file is designed to be kept on tables for reference by the children. I have created it so that each sheet can be cut in half to form A5 cards then laminated. The titles follow the colour scheme used for the display and show ‘Good’ Level 1/2 examples (with the title in a pale version of the colour) and then ‘Even Better’ Level 3/4 examples (with the title in a darker version of the colour). Other topics covered: classroom display.
Planning for about 3 weeks of work on Street Child. I used an enlarged version of the 'Respond to text' sheet to collect pupil responses on colour-coded post-it notes during shared reading as a model before giving them a copy to jot down their own responses.
A worksheet for children to compare numbers (identifying smallest and largest). Also focused on how to set out work in maths book (as it was one of the first lessons in the year). In Word and PDF format.
Lesson plan, teaching resources and differentiated work for 3 lessons
1) Partitioning numbers into tens and units (MA hundreds)
2) Adding multiples of 10.
3) Using partitioning strategy for addition.

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
A Japanese theme game. The children play the game which leads on to - Investigating the frequency score of 2 dice. (What are the best numbers to choose to help you win the game next time?) Lessons include find the odd one out starter activities, success criteria and worksheets. There are also questions to encourage the children’s mathematical thinking. My class find it fun to make up a quick Sumo dance… where they bow to each other before and after each game.
