Maths Calculations Policy PPT for presentation to parents etc Y1-6; four operations

Maths Calculations Policy PPT for presentation to parents etc Y1-6; four operations

This is a powerpoint version of our school calculation policy for Maths. It goes through addition, subtraction, multiplication and division giving an overview of the development of recording methods from Y1 upto Y6 for each one, with examples shown. Includes mark making, number lines, multiplication grids and formal methods. This was used for a presentation to parents in a calculations workshop and was very well received. Obviously it would need tweaking to reflect your specific calculations policy but it might save a lot of time compared to starting from scratch.

CODED X TABLES 4,5,6 and 9 times tables in algebraic codes to crack! Times tables fun.

CODED X TABLES 4,5,6 and 9 times tables in algebraic codes to crack! Times tables fun.

Great activity for upper Key Stage 2 (or more able Y3/4) as a fun way to deepen knowledge of x tables. Includes coded versions of four of the multiplication tables (4,5,6 and 9x). Children have to use their knowledge of all of the times tables to crack the code! [Examples of 'clues' to look for: e.g. 5x table - last digit always ends in one of two letters - i.e. 0 or 5. Always look for answers that remain the same as the question - must be multiplying by 1. Check for one or two digits in the answers as a clue to what the x table might be. Identify zero by finding 10 x ? = ?0. Etc.] Solutions provided.

Counting in twos. Pairs of Socks activity for Year 2

Counting in twos. Pairs of Socks activity for Year 2

A set of photographs of real-life paired socks with key questions to encourage children to reason about counting in pairs or twos. This is a small step up from using actual pairs of socks and will aid children's understanding before moving onto abstract images of pairs of items. Cut out, stick in books and write how many pairs and how many socks and encourage children to explain how they know. Or use as you prefer.
