Reading Scales Blockbusters Game

Reading Scales Blockbusters Game

Fun and engaging class game based on the old TV show Blockbusters, with questions on how to read values from a scale. Split the class into two teams, blue and white. The blue team must try to create a connected blue line from left to right, the white team must try to do the same from top to bottom. Click on the letters to link to the questions, if the answering team gets it right then click “Game board” to get back to the start, and click on the appropriate colour for that team to turn the tile blue or white.

Reading Scales Complete Lesson

Reading Scales Complete Lesson

NOTE - For some reason the preview for the powerpoint lesson plan seems to show the formatting weirdly (some textboxes look too small etc.), however when I download it and open the file it looks just as it should. Complete lesson on teaching pupils to take readings from scales (including decimals), with both Powerpoint and SMART Notebook versions. Fully differentiated worksheet included, with a slide of extra challenging questions to display on the board and stretch the upper end of the class. Blockbusters game included as an alternative activity. I have broken down the process of reading the scales quite a lot, you may wish to delete that part from the example slides and set it out yourself if you have your own preferred way of teaching it. I would also recommend checking to see if the starter questions need adjusting for your class, though I have tried to keep them quite generalised.

SATs Revision (Capacity)

SATs Revision (Capacity)

NEW for 2018, these topic-focused SATs questions have fully-worked solutions. Click 👉 tes.com/…/sats-revision… for similar-style question compilations on the other SATs topics.<hr>This particular compilation is from the MEASUREMENT strand and contains questions on Capacity. Students will have to read a variety of scales and be able to convert between litres and millilitres.<hr>I have designed this compilation to be printed as an A4 or A5 booklet which is in the style of the actual SATs papers and is convenient for use in class or as homework. It can even be given to individual students if a parent is asking for ‘some more work’! KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful. I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented. Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined). I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃 <hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

Geometry: Differentiated Worksheet on Frustums

Geometry: Differentiated Worksheet on Frustums

This is a worksheet on the different types of questions around frustums. It is leveled / differentiated to enable pupils to begin at different places or keep working upwards in terms of challenge. I use this sheet often as my main resource to practise and to review / practise the formula for volume of pyramids and cones. This is LINKED to my LESSON on VOLUME OF FRUSTUMS (an excellent teaching resource!) which has the answers embedded. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Geometry: Keywords with Diagrams (for EAL is great)

Geometry: Keywords with Diagrams (for EAL is great)

This is an excellent few pages that require students to fill in key words. This is particularly an area that pupils often struggle with. It is where the language is the barrier to stop pupils progressing. It is especially helpful for those who have English and an Additional Language (EAL).
