Mental Maths Year 5 / 6

Mental Arithmetic Self-Check Cards, ideal for oral starters, originally designed for KS2 Y5 and Y6 (P6 and P7 and other equivalents) but they will suit some early KS3 classes for revision and consolidation. They could be used as part of SATs preparation too. Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Times Tables, Doubling and Halving, Fractions, Decimals, Percentages, Negative Numbers, Multiplying and Dividing by 10 and 100, Money, Measure, Time. Laminate and use again and again as starter and early finisher tasks. There are twelve calculations on each A4 sheet. <b>You can either leave them as 18 A4 sheets or cut each of the question cards separately to create 216 cards.</b> In the PDF file there are versions both with and without the answers printed below the questions. The with-answers versions could be used by pupils questioning each other while the version without the answers could be used by individuals testing themselves. A separate answer card is included, which individuals could consult. This is a flexible Numeracy resource and can be incorporated into many mental maths games and activities within the classroom, especially oral starters. Children can also discuss the strategies they used. As some of the questions are on money I have included versions of all resources with the money questions replaced with dollars and cents for countries using these. These are contained in a second PDF file. Please note that the cards use UK English and metric measurements. Differentiation: I have called this Set A rather than used any other identifier to help facilitate the use of my Set B (originally designed for Lower Key Stage 2) with lower ability children within the same class without children being aware of the age level of the questions. Click on this link to see the Set B version: Mental Maths Cards Year 3 / Year 4 This Year 5 /6 resource is available alongside a pack of Mental Maths PowerPoint Tests and Crossnumber Puzzles in this good value bundle: Mental Maths Bundle Year 5 Year 6 I hope these cards provide your pupils with regular practice to help boost their mental maths agility.

The cards are designed to be self-checking. The PowerPoint features the problems from the first 8 cards, while the worksheet features an additional 8 problems not on the cards. Includes some UK currency word problems. One of my most popular resources. DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, DOLLAR VERSIONS ARE NOW INCLUDED. Lots of different contexts for your pupils to practise their addition and subtraction skills. This pack was originally designed for upper Key Stage 2 (KS2) - Year 5/6 (P6/P7) but would suit some other groups and classes too. The cards work well as a regular problem-solving challenge for early finishers or as part of your addition and subtraction focus. Includes adding and subtracting calculations involving decimals. The file containing the cards has the question sides on the odd numbered pages and the answer sides on the even numbered pages. If you want them printed back to back you can print the odd numbered pages, then pop the card or paper back in the printer in the correct order and print the even numbered pages on the other side. You can laminate them and have the pupils work on them individually or in groups, checking the answer on the back once they’ve had a go at it. Alternatively, make it competitive and have individuals or pairs race to get the answer, using a timer perhaps. A separate card featuring all answers is included in case you prefer not to print the answers on the back of the cards. A PowerPoint features the problems from the first 8 cards for a whole class activity or to introduce or revise word problems with pupils. The answers flash up on clicking the mouse.

Jumbled Sentences KS1

3 Resources
Jumbled Sentences / Sentence Ordering KS1 Writing BUNDLE - 90 reusable and fun sentence building activity boards. Originally designed for Year 1 (P2) but could be used elsewhere in EYFS / Reception and Key Stage 1, depending on ability and needs. With 3 different sets here (one of which is TES RECOMMENDED), it’s ideal for differentiation. Emergent writers love lifting the words off to unscramble them to find the hidden simple sentence. With an engaging picture clue and title on each board, this word sequencing resource suits a range of learning styles. Pupils rearrange their words into the correct order on the board before writing the sentence out themselves on the lines provided, using a dry-wipe pen. They could then copy the sentence into their jotter if required. Regular practice of making sentences in this way should help pupils begin to form sentences independently. Each mixed-up sentence contains a word beginning with a capital letter to help children identify the first word and to reinforce this important punctuation rule, and a full stop (or question mark) to pick up and place at the end of their sentence. While constructing these sentences, children also learn about word order, parts of speech and about the fact that a sentence must make sense on its own. This bundle contains: A set of 30 4-5 word sentence boards A set of 30 6-8 word sentence boards A set of 30 question sentence boards Please see the individual resources for more information and instructions. Thank you for your interest. If you decide to buy them I hope your pupils have a lot of fun using them and if you can spare a moment to review them, I would be very grateful.

Speed Distance Time

Speed, Distance and Time printable games (Metric): 6 differentiated Four in a Row / Connect Four style game boards for practice and revision of this topic, to suit Upper Key Stage 2 (KS2) or early KS3 (originally designed for a Year 6 / Y6 class). This is a fun alternative activity to additional jotter / textbook work on this maths topic, after pupils have been introduced to (or revised) the formulae D=SxT, S=D÷T and T=D÷S. ANSWER VERSIONS of all games are included. All games are in PDF format. Contains a more simple (one star) and more challenging (two star) version for each of: Distance Travelled Average Speed Time Taken In addition to featuring generally more challenging calculations, the two-star versions of each require conversion between units in some cases. Print and laminate the boards for regular use. I recommend printing boards in A3 if possible (or enlarging them to A3 on the copier) but A4 will be okay too. Pupils work as pairs against pairs or one against one to get four correct answers in a row - horizontally, vertically or diagonally. They roll a die each time to find which column to pick a calculation from (the columns are numbered 1-6). If there are no calculations left in the column whose number they have rolled, they either skip a go or roll again (depending on the rules you have chosen). Pupils write their answers on the board with a whiteboard marker. They could either use a different coloured pen to record answers on the board or add an initial or symbol if using the same coloured pen as their opponent. I hope your students enjoy playing these games. What about this festive mental maths puzzle pack?

Improve sentence structure with these 40 A4 dyslexia-friendly complex sentence construction trails, which includes differentiation and worked examples to help pupils add detail and interest to their narrative writing. Get your pupils extending their sentences, uplevelling their vocabulary and using a wider variety of ambitious sentence structures. Suitable for a range of ages and abilities, this resource scaffolds the descriptive writing of reluctant or struggling writers, while also challenging more able writers. Each card starts with a simple, boring sentence and, step-by-step, learners extend and improve it, adding elements of VCOP and other sentence improvement techniques to construct a fuller description. The worked examples could be shared on the board and perhaps printed and laminated to support less confident creative writers. Works well as a regular SPaG warm-up for writing or as an early finisher task. Ideal for Key Stage 2 (KS2) or Key Stage 3 (KS3). All files in PDF format within the Zip file. Includes: 30 trails for middle and higher ability / older pupils 10 worked examples for these trails 10 trails for lower ability / younger pupils, featuring built in examples and fewer instructions All resources are included with and without a cream background. Printing with this background could support dyslexic learners and those with other barriers to learning. Alternatively you could print the no background versions on pastel coloured paper to reduce glare. Fonts used are also dyslexia-friendly. The trails can be used as worksheets or could be laminated for regular use, with pupils recording sentences elsewhere. If blown up to A3 and laminated they work well for paired or group use, with pupils using a whiteboard pen. In building better, stronger sentences, pupils are encouraged to try more powerful verbs, interesting nouns, similes, start with adverbs or -ing and -ed words, add adjectives, drop further information into sentences using subclauses and bracket commas, use connectives to add further information etc. Check out the bundles of linked resources in which this resource is available.

6 editing practice or proofreading Literacy (English) SPaG revision puzzles worksheets. Spot the Mistakes / Find the Errors puzzles, originally designed for Year 5, Year 6 and Year 7. Use for starters, early finishers challenges, homework activities, SATs practice etc. Fun alternative to standard worksheets with minimal preparation required. Spelling, punctuation and grammar concepts included are: homophones and other common spelling errors, full stops, capital letters, question marks, commas, colons, speech marks, proper nouns, missing words, repeated words, tenses, subordinate clauses and embedded clauses. Full answer keys provided. Pages 1-12 of the PDF file contain versions of the 6 puzzles and answer keys with a pastel background, which can be printed in colour or in greyscale and could support some learners to view the sentences more clearly. Versions without this background can be found on pages 13-24. These proof reading puzzles may be suitable for some KS3 classes for revision too. Students circle or highlight errors in each line of text. When students find lines with 3 or more errors, they take the corresponding letter from the grid at the bottom of the page. When finished, they rearrange these letters to find a hidden grammar or punctuation word. Students could complete puzzles individually, in pairs or in small groups. For differentiation you could put lower ability children into pairs, perhaps with a higher ability student. The Teacher’s Notes at the end of the file refers to these puzzles as SET A and mentions SET B (designed for Years 3 and 4). SET B will be available separately on TES (coming soon!) The spelling, punctuation and grammar follow UK rules, so the puzzles are only suitable for countries that follow these.

Mental Maths Activities BUNDLE of 15 PowerPoint Speed Tests, 216 Self-Check Cards and 8 Cross Number Puzzles, originally designed for Upper KS2 – Y5 and Y6 (P6 and P7 and other equivalents). These mental arithmetic resources - kindly rated ‘Excellent’ by a reviewer (see below) - might also suit some early KS3 classes for revision and consolidation. They could be used as part of SATs preparation too. Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Doubling & Halving, Fractions, Decimals, Percentages, Negative Numbers, Place Value, Money, Area, Perimeter, Time, Length and Angles. As the PowerPoints and Self-Check cards include money questions in UK currency, I have also included versions for countries that use dollars and cents. Differentiation: I have called this Set A rather than used any other identifier to help facilitate the use of Set B (originally designed for Lower Key Stage 2) with lower ability children within the same class without children being aware of the age level of the questions. Set B resources are also available individually or as a bundle: Mental Maths Bundle Year 4 / Year 3 POWERPOINT SPEED TESTS 15 informal tests split across 3 PowerPoints, designed to be shown on the whiteboard with children recording answers in jotters or on paper. One question to a slide will allow children to focus for a few seconds before the next one comes up. The question slides are plain and uncluttered so as to minimise distractions. Run the PowerPoint presentation on a timer or click it on yourself, perhaps allowing a little longer for more challenging questions. Each test features 20 questions involving a variety of mathematical skills and knowledge. At the end of each test, the same 20 slides are repeated, this time with the answer added clearly. Children can then mark their own or a partner’s work to reduce your workload. If short of time, you can whizz through the answers but the idea of each answer appearing with its question like this is that it allows for important discussions about strategies. SELF-CHECK CARDS A flexible resource that can be incorporated into many mental maths games and activities within the classroom, especially oral starters. Laminate and use again and again as starter and early finisher tasks. There are twelve calculations on each A4 sheet. Leave them as 18 A4 sheets or cut each of the question cards separately to create 216 cards. There are versions both with and without the answers printed below the questions. The with-answers versions could be used by pupils questioning each other while the version without the answers could be used by individuals testing themselves. A separate answer card is included, which individuals could consult. CROSSNUMBER PUZZLES A fun resource for early finisher tasks, mental starters, homework etc. They could be completed by individuals or in pairs or small groups, where they will promote important discussions about different mental strategies. As in a crossword puzzle, children will find it easier to work out some of the more challenging questions once they have filled in the easier ones as some digits will already be there for them. ANSWER GRIDS for all 8 puzzles are included within the file and could be printed for pupils to self-check (or displayed later on the board), cutting down on your marking! I hope these Mental Numeracy resources save you time and provide great opportunities for your pupils to get regular practice to boost their mental maths agility.

Includes a puzzle for each of the list below: Converting Length (one-star, less challenging version) Converting Length (two-star, more challenging) Converting Volume / Capacity Converting Weight (Mass) Ordering Measurements Converting Measurements for Mental Addition and Subtraction calculations An engaging alternative to standard worksheets, these no-prep measurement puzzles make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities. They can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. They are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a maths-related word to be revealed after converting, ordering, adding or subtracting the measurement. Each puzzle contains a grid. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors, then put together the letters from these boxes to reveal a maths word. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their own work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. The range of puzzles in this resource is ideal for differentiation and / or to cater for a range of groups and classes across Key Stage 2 (KS2) and some early KS3. Hopefully they'll be helpful for your teaching over many years. I hope your students enjoy using these puzzles. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment.
