Apostrophes! Why do so many of us get them wrong?<br />
In Year 2 children are expected to use contractions accurately, and in Year 4 they are expected to understand possessive apostrophes as well.<br />
This extended lesson on apostrophes is suitable for Years 4, 5 and 6. It would also be an ideal revision tool for the Year 6 Grammar Test.<br />
First, children are given the chance to revisit prior learning through the fun warm up game 'The Memory Test'.<br />
Following that, they will learn about possessive apostrophes and common misconceptions during the presentation.<br />
When they are ready, the two player game 'Apostrophe Abduction' will provide them with plenty of challenge.<br />

A revision power point containing 14 revision tables targeting key grade C topics with some of the grade B topics that a grade C pupil can attempt. Topics include solving equations, four rules of fractions, standard form, graphs etc. Topics are repeated on some slides for extra practice. Twelve topics are revised per slide. On power point so you can adapt/amend as you need. I found that one table lasts as a starter for 2 lessons allowing for approx. 15 mins at start of each lesson.
The task is to design a brand new zoo thinking about <br />
different animals needing different amounts of space, the children have to calculate costs and profit. They are not given a budget but the more species they have the more money they earn. <br />
I have included a fact sheet: containing 7 pages that include the species of animals the space they need and some tables to record their calculations, an editable Smart Notebook resource to start the project and a squared paper sheet (best printed on A3) to try and calculate the perimeter - if they share the perimeters it reduces the cost of the fencing.<br />
This took my class 4 maths lessons with a 5th sharing their designs and budget. They loved it - probably because we approached it as a design competition.<br />

A plan listing key days, festivals, celebrations each month, that can be easily link to the listed area of maths. We use this as a department to ensure SMSC, cross curricular links, real life maths, maths in and out of the usual context, enhance and improve pupils problem solving and applying skills, encourage discussion and to ensure consistency and the sharing of planning, resources and good practice across the department. We are now at the point where pupils are creating their own. Each member of the department takes a unit and plans a series of starters relating to the key dates and themes on powerpoint. The rest of the department then just edit and adapt for their KS3 class.
I have made a lesson (or two) just on perimeter and area.
The perimeter includes a worksheet.
All because I could not find a simple Year 7 lesson (Low ability) so I made one!
An NQT so all feedback welcomed!
Included are 4 days of planning + resources for a dragon-themed area and perimeter problem solving week. Each day the design briefs were printed off into mini-booklets for the children. The fourth day was a lesson observation including a message from the troublesome customer Smaug! This was a popular sequence of lessons! This was originally intended for a year 4 class but could easily be used with years 5 and 6 as it is open-ended.
The first week involving a literacy plan for learning about newspapers, including their structure. The plan involved the 2012 Olympics but also used nursery rhymes to help frame how a newspaper column is laid out.
A week's planning including worksheets and teaching aides introducing the children to the formal method of division (referred in plans as the bus stop method). Also included are related word problems and extensions.
The children often struggled with questions that masked to work out a missing coordinate so I pulled all the previous SATs questions I could find on this to go through and explain them. I also made a game to add in the missing point on a grid with four quadrants to make 2D shapes.
Adventure game in which students answer KS3 circle questions in order to rescue a princess. Teacher notes and answers are provided. 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: parts of a circle, circumference, area, reverse questions: given circumference, find diameter and radius; given area, find radius and diameter. Go to my profile page to see the GCSE version including arc length and sector area and check out my other games.
