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 metric (and imperial) measures using line graphs

UKS2 (Year 5 and Year 6) converting between metric (and imperial) measures using line graphs

Learning Objectives Starter: - To order multistep calculations. - To interpret line graphs. Main Lesson: - To convert between different units of metric measure (Year 5) - To interpret line graphs and to convert between miles and kilometres (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 challenging children to hypothesise what data a series of line graphs might represent. An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart, to teach use line graphs to convert between different units of measure and how to draw their own line graphs. A 4-way differentiated series of tasks requiring children to convert between the various metric units of measure using, and plotting their own, line graphs. A challenge activity where children convert between miles and kilometres and metres. Answer sheet provided to support marking. A final AFL / Next Steps task, asking children to apply their knowledge to a conversion table, converting between litres and gallons.

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

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.

Functional Volume/Capacity Problem

Functional Volume/Capacity Problem

Recently the government's Brexit strategy was described as "one of trying to fill a swimming pool with a teaspoon". We only have two years to complete negotiations, so will the swimming pool be filled in time? Requires volume of prisms, capacity, metric units conversion, time calculations and rate calculations. Could be linked to direct and inverse proportion.

End of Year Maths Project KS3 - Theme Park & Fairground

End of Year Maths Project KS3 - Theme Park & Fairground

Perfect for ending the year! Whole unit of work for final week or fortnight of teaching. Engaging and rich tasks allow students to develop problem solving skills while having fun! The slides clearing follow the order of the booklet. Session one gets students jooked before looking at budgeting and plans and elevations in session two. Session three and four student begin to design their own theme park plan. Session 5 introduces the second part of the project - creating their own fairground game for the entrance of their theme park. In session two students can create these games and test them, finding out probabilities and using questionnaires to further improve their designs and creations. This has been used successfully with low ability students in year 7 up to high ability students in year 9 - often differentiated through questioning and higher pitched expectations.

Measure worded problems- Year 3

Measure worded problems- Year 3

A range of worded problems I have used with a year 3 class. They are differentiated into red (R), amber (A) and green (G), with red being the simplest (for those feeling very unconfident) and green being for those who are super confident/requiring enrichment. Collated some problems from different sources and added my own. Thank you to other contributors.
