Fun with butterflies: co-ordinates, symmetry, life-cycle, cloze procedure

Fun with butterflies: co-ordinates, symmetry, life-cycle, cloze procedure

This PowerPoint is based on Spring time and in particular, butterflies. Pupils will use their knowledge of timestables to produce co-ordinates on a grid. If plotted correctly they will produce their own pixelated butterfly. More scientific diagrams show the parts of a butterfly and the life cycle of a butterfly. Pupils are asked how they can add features to the pixelated form to make it more life like. Finally there is a cloze procedure about Spring where pupils are required to put in appropriate adjectives from a list.This resource is intended for revision purposes and will test numeracy, literacy, scientific and artistic skills in a cross curricular approach.Suitable for ages 7+

Mothers' Day crossword and co-ordinates activities

Mothers' Day crossword and co-ordinates activities

This Power Point is ideal for Mother's Day including literacy and numeracy activities. Pupils need to use their knowledge of times tables to complete the multiplication mosaic. If they fill in the co-ordinates properly, they will create a colourful pixelated pot plant. They will need to solve a coded message and a crossword , the answers will form words to do with family matters. Once the crossword is solved they are then required to use the words to create a paragraph of their own about their own family, friends and pets.This resource is suitable for ages 7+

Compass directions - create your own island - (Year 3) differentiated

Compass directions - create your own island - (Year 3) differentiated

Pupils use the grid to draw an island, and then have to add a list of things on their map, such as a lake, hotel, beach, etc.Once they have finished creating their island, they need to complete directions for tourists to help them get around their island. Using North, South, East and West pupils have to tell them how to get to and from different places on the map.There are 3 differentiated versions:LA - Have to give simple instructions for 4 different routes.MA - Have to give instructions for 9 different routes.HA - Have to give 9 instructions for different routes, and also have to give some directions for routes with more than one stop (e.g. hotel -> lake -> beach).I printed them out on A3 for my Year 3 class to use, which worked well, but they could be printed A4 too.

Developing Numerical Reasoning through Questioning - Pocket-sized Booklets and Speech Bubbles N - Y6

Developing Numerical Reasoning through Questioning - Pocket-sized Booklets and Speech Bubbles N - Y6

This resource contains handy pocket-sized questioning booklets and large speech bubbles for introducing each question. It supports progressive questioning from N to Y6 to develop numerical reasoning. Numerical reasoning is about learners thinking for themselves, working out what they need to do in order to solve a problem, being able to show clearly what they are doing, and convince someone else that they are correct and how they know. Developing effective questioning skills is an essential aspect of developing numerical reasoning. The questions have been organised into the following categories and aligned to RUCSAC:Identifying processes and connections, Getting started on the problem – Read, UnderlineRepresent & communicate, Working through and solving – Calculation, Solve, AnswerReview, Checking solution, is it sensible – CheckIt is important that the questions become a natural part of teaching for all staff working with learners. Introducing questions at a steady pace, with all staff focusing on using the question where possible will help to embed the questioning skills. Questions can be displayed around the classroom to remind staff to use them where appropriate. In the best practice, the questions are developed throughout the school ensuring continued progression. It can also be beneficial to involve parents in using the questioning, e.g. A question of the term, with examples on the website.
