Primary decimals resources
A comparing decimal worksheet, could be used for assessment or a lesson starter. Part of a wider unit of work on decimals.
A week's worth of maths to develop children's fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. Used with year 4 but can easily be adapted.
Focuses on times tables, place value, inverse operations, fractions and time.
6 differentiated Four in a Row / Connect Four style game boards for consolidation of Speed, Distance and Time calculations, to suit Upper Key Stage 2 (KS2) or early KS3. This is a fun alternative activity to additional jotter / textbook work on this maths / numeracy topic, after pupils have been introduced to (or revised) the formulae D=SxT, S=D÷T and T=D÷S. ANSWER VERSIONS of all games are included.
Contains a more simple (one star) and more challenging (two star) version for each of:
In addition to featuring generally more challenging calculations, the two-star versions of each require conversion between units in some cases.
Print and laminate the boards for regular use. I recommend printing boards in A3 if possible (or enlarging them to A3 on the copier) but A4 will be okay too. Pupils work as pairs against pairs or one against one to get four correct answers in a row - horizontally, vertically or diagonally. They roll a die each time to find which column to pick a calculation from (the columns are numbered 1-6). If there are no calculations left in the column whose number they have rolled, they either skip a go or roll again (depending on the rules you have chosen). Pupils write their answers on the board with a whiteboard marker. They could either use a different coloured pen to record answers on the board or add an initial or symbol if using the same coloured pen as their opponent.
I hope your students enjoy playing these games.

Huge resourse set of different maths focuses at big discount.
In all most every resource there are presentation to support inputs and multiple levels of differentiation.
Perfect for year 6 teacher preparing for SATs
Over 20 Excel spreadsheets with random number generators creating questions and answers on topics including:
Converting integer %s to decimals One number as a % of another
Converting %s to decimals Reverse %s
Converting %s >100% to decimals
Converting %s to fractions and simplifying
Finding 10% of multiples of 10
Finding 10% of any integer
Finding 10,20,30% of a number
Finding 15% of a number
Using a calculator
To support with KS2 SATs- there is an array of different arithmetic question to complete. Can be done in teams/pairs or individually using the answer sheet. Presentation is split in to sections (normally 4 questions) then same questions are repeated with answers to break up the session.
Children enjoy the competition and good to do in mixed ability pairs so support can be given and keeps the scores fairly the same.
I have used the resource shared by 'paulcollins' and adapted it slightly. Changed some of the questions and made it Christmas themed so its more appropriate for this time of year. Also includes a special appearance by the fearsome Blackbeard and terrifying Kraken! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
3 stepped activities suitable for 7 - 11 years.

Includes a variety of activities focusing on developing children's knowledge of times tables, fluency and problem solving skills through test style questions.
Includes operations, missing numbers, fractions, decimals, measurement, time, money, place value.
Students should be able to simplify these problems into
a) 2.3 x 10
b) 3.5 x 8 or 7 x 4
c) 0.23 x 10
d) 16 x 1.5
This spreadsheet is set up to produce nine questions for students to answer on a variety of foundation topics.
The spreadsheet also generates the answers.
The generate a new list simply alter week 1 for week 2 etc and a new sheet is generated. That is the numbers are replaced or a different algebraic expression is generated.
The topics on this sheet include:
Dividing into a given ratio
Multiplying fractions together
nth term of a linear sequence
collection of like terms
solving simple equations
Place value and multiplication card sort, cut out and find matching pairs.
