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

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.

Teach in 20 Density, mass, volume

Teach in 20 Density, mass, volume

This started as a teaching prompt to prepare my year 10 set 2 for a end of year mock and it was based on topics we hadn't studied yet. I found I could teach them the content and go through an example and then get them try a question in about 20 minutes - that is 3 new topics in a 60 minute lesson. I printed the PowerPoints as handouts and got the students to work on them. You can of course use them as you see fit. Feedback would be much appreciated! Enjoy :)

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.
