A set of three lessons to recover fractions of quantities, simplifying fractions and as well as converting between improper and mixed numbers.\n\nGood for trouble shooting weaknesses in April pre-SATs.
A last minute pre-SATs revision on the two methods available to children to multiply large numbers. I also threw in the starter on factors, as this was maths vocabulary that was still escaping some children.
I've also added the second and third days lessons I planned moving onto multiplying decimals then applying multiplication skills in word problems, looking at breaking down the steps in two-step word problems.
Could be a useful sequence when trouble shooting weaknesses in April maths!
This was a lesson I put together to show the children that by starting with finding 10% of a number they could, through doubling/halving/further dividing, find more difficult percentages mentally, e.g. 15%, 20%, 40%.\n\nIncluded is the activity I did afterwards and the extension.
Whilst looking for maths revision lessons I found a plan / timetable that someone had clearly spent much time putting together. I decided that to use this as the bases for my last few weeks before SATs. Unfortunately, this plan was not resourced. I've spent sometime searching the net for lessons and resources to use. I would like to stress that these are basic lesson resources and will need adapting according to your class. Some lessons are better than others!<br /><br />Apologies, I couldn't work out how to group lessons so it's a bit of a mess!
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.
