Mental Maths Activities KS2

6 Resources
Great for starters and early finishers, this Mental Maths / Arithmetic KS2 Big Bundle contains 3 Upper KS2 resource packs (Year 5 / 6) and 3 Lower KS2 resource packs (Year 4 / 3), great for differentiation in the same class. A total of 30 PowerPoint Speed Tests, 432 Self-Check Cards and 16 Cross Number Puzzles for regular practice throughout the year. The Lower Key Stage 2 resources were originally designed for Y4 (P5 and other equivalents) but would also suit some Y3 (P4) classes too once the concepts have been covered. They could also be used for lower ability pupils in Upper KS2. They could be used as part of SATs preparation. The Upper Key Stage 2 resources were originally designed for Y5 and Y6 (P6 and P7 and other equivalents). They would also suit some early KS3 classes for consolidation and revision. Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Doubling & Halving, Fractions, Percentages, Decimals, Negative Numbers, Place Value, Money, Measure, Time 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 the Lower KS2 resources Set B, while the Upper is Set A, rather than using any other identifier to help facilitate the use of both sets within the same class without the children being aware of the age level of the questions. All these Mental Numeracy resources are available individually or in smaller Lower KS2 and Upper KS2 bundles: Mental Maths Bundle Year 5 Year 6 Mental Maths Bundle Year 4 / Year 3 The information below applies to both the Lower and Upper KS2 resources, so there’s double what it says: 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 save you time and provide great practice to help boost your students’ mental maths agility. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Many thanks.

Addition and Subtraction KS1 Maths Activities

Fun KS1 Maths add and subtract cards, ideal for independent work in Year 1 and Year 2. This free sample includes 16 printable write and wipe trail cards for early finishers, lesson starters, warm ups and revision, which will also suit some Year 3 and older KS2 pupils requiring consolidation, including those with ASN / SEN. Regular practice using these resources will help to build speed and accuracy and they are an engaging change from standard worksheets. Laminate them for children to complete with dry-wipe pens or use in dry-erase sleeves if you wish to save on laminating. Alternatively, leave them uncovered and use as worksheets with a difference. These are great to have to hand throughout the year to use as last-minute meaningful ‘fillers’. They can even be turned into a competitive game if required, with pupils racing each other to complete.   4 cards have been taken from each of the following 4 full packs: Adding and subtracting within 20 Adding and subtracting within 50 Adding and subtracting 9, 10 and 11 Adding and subtracting multiples of 10   The full packs from which these cards have been taken each contain 36 cards and answer versions of all cards. All four full sets (144 cards) are available in a great value bundle here: Addition and Subtraction KS1 Maths Card BUNDLE   Or, if you would like just the first two packs, a smaller bundle is also available: Addition and Subtractions within 20 and 50 KS1 Cards. Starting at the top illustration and working their way around the card in a spiral, children write the answer to each calculation in the box, creating a running total as they go. The final answer is printed at the end of the trail, beside the illustration in the middle of the card, so they can see if they have correctly completed it. If not, children can check their work to see where they have gone wrong. Thank you for your interest in my resources. I hope they work well in your classroom.

KS2 Analogue to Digital Time puzzle worksheet (converting analogue time to 12 hour digital time) and answer key. This is a free sample from my fun, printable Hidden Word / Spot the Mistake Time puzzles pack. The full pack of 9 puzzles for various time concepts at Upper KS2 (Year 5 / Year 6) and Early KS3 revision is available here – ** Time Puzzle Worksheets** The full pack also contains puzzles for telling the time to five minutes and nearest minute (analogue), converting between 12 and 24 hour time, converting between units of time (seconds, hours, minutes) and 12 hour time durations / time intervals. An engaging alternative to standard worksheets, these no-prep puzzles make ideal warm ups, fast finisher activities or homework. They can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. They are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a maths-related word to be revealed after the Time work has been completed. Each puzzle contains a grid. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors, then put together the letters from these boxes to reveal the hidden word. Students 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. A Mega Bundle of 12 of my hidden word puzzle packs for many maths and numeracy concepts (over 70 puzzle worksheets) is available for a huge saving, while the same puzzle packs are also available in some smaller bundles: Maths Hidden Word Puzzles MEGA BUNDLE Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 1 Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 2 Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 3 For engaging, time-saving printables and presentations to plan Primary Literacy, Maths and French lessons, visit FullShelf Resources
