UKS2 (Year 5 and Year 6) solving multi-step Word problems requiring use of all four operations.

Learning Objectives Starter: - To order multistep calculations. - To identify four operations. Main Lesson: - To solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and a combination of these (Year 5) - To solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (Year 6) - To use the 4 operations, including formal written methods, applied to integers and decimals, (KS3) This lesson consists of: A Starter consisting of a series of progressively harder, multi-step calculations and revision of properties of numbers. A connect activity challenging children to identify which range of operations they require to solve a differentiated Word problem. An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart, to teach children how to lay out multi operation Word problems and how to allowing you to group children according to ability. A 4-way differentiated series of tasks requiring children to solve multi-step word problems relating to measures, time and multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. A challenge activity where children have to apply this knowledge and draw conclusion in order to answer two Mastery style questions. Answer sheet provided to support marking. A final AFL / Next Steps task, asking children to apply their knowledge to a multistep SATs question, requiring the use of brackets to organise their calculation.

UKS2 (Year 5 and Year 6) converting between units of measure - metric (and imperial - challenge)

Learning Objectives Starter: - To order multistep calculations. - To use, read, write and convert between standard units. Main Lesson: - To convert between different units of metric measure (Year 5) - To convert measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to 3 decimal places (Year 6) -To change freely between related standard units [for example length, capacity and mass] (KS3) This lesson consists of: A Starter consisting of a series of progressively harder, multi-step calculations and revision of properties of numbers. A connect activity getting children to start to think about the different units used to measure length, capacity and mass. An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart, to teach the conversions between different metric units including mm, cm, metres, kilometres, litres and millilitres, grams and kilograms. A 4-way differentiated series of tasks requiring children to convert between the various metric units of measure. A challenge activity where children complete between miles and kilometres and metres. A Place Value grid is provided as additional support for those struggling. Answer sheet provided to support marking. A final AFL / Next Steps task, asking children to apply their knowledge to a conversion graph, which will be focus of the following days lesson.

Division Aid for Short Division

Division Aid for Short Division

I made this resource to support short division. The idea is that you think of the cars as having seats and that the seats represent the dividend. Example of 255 divided by 5: In your first vehicle you would have 2 seats representing the 200 hundred in 255. You would say that a group of 5 would not go in a car with two seats so you put 0 at the top. the 2 would carry over as usual and the next car would have 25 seats in it. You would then circle 5 groups of 5 with no remainders. The last vehicle would have 5 seats in it and you would circle one group of 5 and write 1 at the top.

Amazing Arrays

Amazing Arrays

The seaside themed PowerPoint explains and shows what an array is, with fun seaside and beach illustrations, arrays using circles, clear examples, top tips for saving time e.g. counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. (Please see video for a 8 second per slide run through of the PowerPoint, actual PowerPoint is far smoother and controlled via right click to begin each animation, giving time for explanations and children to think and answer) Also included a simple array cut-match-stick worksheet (2 version: one at a lower level and one slightly harder)

2 Times Table / 5 Times Table Games

2 Times Table / 5 Times Table Games

KS1 Self-Check Two and Five Times Table Games, originally designed for Year 2 (P3) but might suit some other stages. These work especially well for groups that find it hard to work independently; the answers are all underneath the calculations, meaning pupils can enjoy consolidating their learning without having to check their answers with you, allowing you to work with another group. In turn each pupil rolls the dice, moves the correct number of spaces and answers the calculation on the hexagon. If correct, they stay where they are. If wrong, they go back where they were. There's a board and calculation card set for the 2 times table and another for the 5 times table. Colour printing is required as the hexagon question cards match the colour of the answer hexagons on the board to help you assemble it as easily as possible. A different font on each board helps you identify which board any stray hexagons are from when tidying up! Especially helpful if you have any of my other games in this series (see links below). The addition and subtraction ones are available for a significant saving in a bundle: Addition and Subtraction to 20 Games Bundle Addition and Subtraction to 20 Games Addition to 20 Games Subtraction to 20 Games The games work best in A3 so I have included two versions for each board - one can be printed as a single A3 sheet and another is split over 2 A4 pages in case you don't have A3 printing / laminating. Print on paper or card and laminate. A third file for each board contains question hexagons. Print on sturdy card to last well. Attach each above the corresponding answer hexagon on the board using Blu Tack, Blu Tak Dots or similar to allow children to lift off questions to reveal answers. The hexagon cards on page 1 and 2 of the file are sized very slightly smaller than the hexagons on the A3 board so that they fit together well. The much smaller hexagons on page 3 need only be printed if using an A4 board. I hope these work well in your class. I'd be grateful for a review if you get a moment. Many thanks.
