Amazing Code Breaking, Problem Solving Ofsted Maths Lesson!

Amazing Code Breaking, Problem Solving Ofsted Maths Lesson!

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 = MAN2nd answer = HAT3rd answer = BEARD4th answer = GLASSES5th answer = MOUSTACHE6th answer = GINER2 SUSPECTS LEFT = Kenny and EricTHIEF IS = KENNY*PLEASE NOTE I HAVE ADDED 2 ADDITIONAL DIFFERENTIATED SHEETS AND A POWERPOINT*

2d shapes Problem Solving and Reasoning Working In Greater Depth

2d shapes Problem Solving and Reasoning Working In Greater Depth

This is a fun, engaging and creative lesson with shape. The lesson has been successfully used to apply knowledge of shapes in a year 2 setting. Children can begin to think of problems systematically. They think of the best way to start, that there is more than one answer, that they can use number doubles and counting on to support them. Children are encouraged to find different ways to make a 9 sided shape family. They need to be secure with properties of simple 2d shapes previously such as sides of regular shapes. This activity can also be used in year 1 with children working in greater depth to demonstrate reasoning with shape in the measures unit. Work can be differentiated by giving children regular or irregular shapes. Very stimulating activity for all learners.

KS2 Code Breaking - Find Missing Digits in Written Calculations using the Inverse Operation

KS2 Code Breaking - Find Missing Digits in Written Calculations using the Inverse Operation

A fully resourced lesson on finding the missing digit within addition and subtraction questions. This allows children to practise inverse operations and apply written methods in a fun and interactive way.After looking on the internet myself, I found that everything out there in this area was very dry, so I made this. The lesson is designed as a code breaking lesson, where children must solve the missing digit problems in order to save a class prized possession. A lesson plan, 8 differentiated worksheets, a letter from the villains for the starter and an answer sheet is included.The questions are differentiated and cover:- 2 digit by 2 digit addition- 2 digit by 2 digit subtraction- 3 digit by 3 digit addition- 3 digit by 3 digit subtraction- 4 digit by 4 digit addition- 4 digit by 4 digit subtraction- Decimal addition- Decimal subtractionThis gives you the flexibility to choose the appropriate level for your class, or differentiate for different groups within your class by assigning each group a different villain's lock to break.
