Save yourself HOURS of work with this lovely interactive resource pack providing practice materials for the pseudo words that children will encounter during the year one phonics screening check. <br />
The pack contains 2 colourful PowerPoint presentations, 2 sets of printable flash cards, a lesson plan and an activity sheet. The resources would provide a numerous lesson and can be used year on year. <br />
The pack focuses solely on the pseudo words as in my experience, these tend to be the words children find most challenging in the check, even for able readers. <br />
The materials have been carefully prepared following the principles of the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) screening checks, ensuring a broad coverage of sounds including vowel digraphs and common consonant blends.
I have created this target sheet to be stuck on the inside cover of Year 1 children’s Maths books. All the targets are for the new curriculum 2014. <br />
*If you find any errors please let me know, i’ll get it fixed ASAP for you :)*<br />

Still using levels for one last year? <br />
This document shows the expected progress of pupils, term by term, for years 1-6. <br />
In case it interests you, I have included some levels that are loosely matched to Reception outcomes-these will give a baseline for year 1. I tracked the use of my baseline levels over the last academic year and found they demonstrated expected progress across Year 1, but I do appreciate that attributing levels based on EYFS outcomes is generally frowned upon, so you may choose to ignore that part!
These tests are really useful to inform and support teacher judgements at the end of Y1. The pack is made up of two test papers in the style of the new KS1 SATs. There is an arithmetic paper and a problem solving and reasoning paper.
The questions are based around the expectations set out in the new curriculum for Year 1. The arithmetic paper has a few additional challenge questions for children working at greater depth. They are simple and easy to administer.
These tests can be used to quickly assess a child’s knowledge on several maths objectives in the Year 3 National Curriculum.
They may be particularly helpful in schools where Learning Ladders are being used in maths.
Answers for all tests are included.
These are from the Wigan LEA.
3 Question papers to assess children in Year 3 at the end of each term.
Answer sheets include a levelling guide so you can see roughly what level they have attained: 2B, 2A, 3C etc. So not geared towards the NC 2014.
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.
Please keep in mind this is for year 3/4 children (as from previous comments) not particularly designed for higher year groups.
Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.)
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.
