Reasoning and Problem Solving Questions Collection - KS1 and KS2

These booklets each contain over 40 reasoning and problem solving questions suitable for KS1, KS2 and KS3 classes. These are the questions that we have been putting out each day in March 2016 on Twitter in the run up to SATS.

The answers are provided with some simple notes at the back of the booklet and for some problems supplementary questions and variation has been provided.

We hope to release more questions like this over the course of next year including some open ended problems. Please keep a look out for our work. If you have not seen our schemes and assessments for primary then please take a look at our website www.whiterosemathshub.co.uk

As always we welcome any feedback on the work we are doing and the materials that we are releasing.
Thank you for taking an interest in our work.

Summer Poetry Planning

Very popular resource! Download our new Summer Performance Poetry Pack, a five-lesson English unit for Year 1 and Year 2, based on performing summer poetry and great for early English learners.

In this unit, pupils will read a classic summer poem about a baby playing with the sand on the beach. Pupils will have a chance to consider how the sounds and language patterns come alive when the poem is read aloud. There is also a grammar focus on expanded nouns and using command sentences. Children will work towards creating their own version of the summer poem and turning it into an effective performance, which could be used for a summer-themed assembly or celebration.

The aims of the unit for pupils are:
• To listen to a classic summer poem being read aloud
• To use expanded nouns
• To use command sentences
• To prepare a poetry performance including actions
• To perform a poem to an audience

The PDF file contains 5 full literacy lesson plans, copies of the poem and all accompanying pupil resources.
