Ready to use challenge cards and resources to develop numerical reasoning and mathematics skills. Resources include: making spinning daffodils; planning an eisteddfod; and baking Welsh cakes. Each activity includes related numerical reasoning challenges.
Mathematics is everywhere in the world around us. Having 'Llygaid Mathemateg' ( Maths Eyes) changes the view of mathematics as being something everyone does in school. With ‘Llygaid Mathemateg’ people see the mathematics they do everyday - mathematics becomes real and meaningful. This resource contains a photograph of the big wheel on Barry Island and mathematical question prompts differentiated for theFoundation Phase and KS2.
How to use Llygaid Mathemateg:
Llygaid Mathemateg can be used as a starting point for a topic, as a plenary activity or at a regular time in the school day such as a morning task or settling down task after play.
After a general initial discussion of the images, learners should put their 'Llygaid Mathemateg' on and see what they can see.
Each image has some question prompts for the adult leading the discussion. These questions have been aligned to the ‘Curriculum for Wales: revised Areas of Learning and programmes of study’ and can be used as a starting point for developing questions appropriate for the learners discussing the image. It is not an exhaustive list of questions and teachers should tailor the questions to suit their class. As staff and learners become more familiar with ‘Llygaid Mathemateg’ they will begin to develop their own mathematical questions.
This resource pack is based on Llygaid Mathemateg images, developed for the National Support Partnership. It includes 4 images with FP and KS2 numeracy questions aligned to the revised POS for Wales. Each image also has a 'Make it Reasoning' activity sheet for both FP and KS2 with numerical reasoning questions - reasoning answers provided.
These images make ideal lesson starters or settling down activities. The numerical reasoning activities could be used for challenge areas, as extension work, homework or as a lesson resource.
Visual guidance inspired by Estyn best practice and thematic reports for developing pupil participation in practice.
These posters can support the development of best practice in pupil participation in practice and are a simple and colourful way to reinforce your school priorities. There are checklists for leadership and management, staff and governors. The posters can be used in a variety of ways to implement best practice including:
Work whole- school on a checklist at a time - choose the area that is a priority for your school.
Give groups the checklists that are relevant to their work, e.g. governors, school council, teachers, SLT.
Choose an action from each checklist to work on.
The checklists are available in jpg or pdf format. Further resources to support implementation and monitoring are available in my Cully Education Shop.
These templates align intervention activities with the LNF. There is a coded framework version and a simple LNF version for each template. Interventions covered include Read Write Inc, Nessie and Rapid Readers for primary schools and Fresh Start and a general numeracy intervention template for secondary schools. There is also a PPT to explain the rationale for using the templates.
This resource is based around Llygaid Mathemateg images, developed for the National Support Partnership. The resource includes the images, mathematical question sheets and numerical reasoning questions for FP and KS2.
There are 7 Christmas images with numeracy and numerical reasoning questions for both FP and KS2.
Learning Walks can be really useful to gather information about practice across the school. These proforma can be used to support SLT, numeracy coordinators, and other staff, in recording findings from learning walks looking at numeracy.
This resource is based around a Llygaid Mathemateg image, developed for the National Support Partnership. The resource includes the image and two activity sheets, one with numerical reasoning questions for FP and the other with numerical reasoning questions for KS2.
