#### Blank number lines

(0)
Here are 2 A4 sheets of number lines with 6 spaces for numbers. They can be used for missing number work, counting activities, or problem solving questions.

#### Blank build it, draw it, write it grid

(0)
This is a blank grid used for place value work. Children can use this layout to represent numbers in multiple ways to deepen their understanding. Children place the number in circle in the centre. Then children can write the number in words, build it practically in the classroom, calculate 1 more/less etc. The children can represent the number in the draw section by using a tens and ones grid or inventing their own symbols. The grid is entirely editable so it can be made easier or harder for other year groups.

#### Year 1 mini assessments with Euro coins

#### Multiplication grid and reasoning multiplication grid

(0)
There are 2 different versions of a 12 x 12 multiplication grid. The first one is the “normal” grid will all 144 numbers. The only slight difference is the column titles are at the bottom. The second version is a “Mastery and Reasoning” approach that only shows “half” the answers as they are the only times tables children need to know. If you look back at the regular times table grid you will realise that many answers are repeated twice e.g. 2 x 10 = 20 and 10 x 2 = 20. Children do not need to “rote” learn all the times tables. This newer version promotes that if a child can learn all the “blue” times tables then they already know the “red” times due to the “Law of Commutativity” of multiplication. Also it further promotes the use of arrays to prove to children that multiplication can be done in any order. The “Mastery and Reasoning” grid can be used as a home learning or school learning tool. Furthermore, it can be used as an investigation tool for children to investigate the missing numbers on the grid using practical resources.

#### Blank ten frames

(0)
These are blank ten frames that can be printed and laminated for repeated use. They are a brilliant resource for understanding counting, representation of numbers, addition and subtraction of numbers.

#### 100 square

(0)
This is a normal 100 square to use for display purposes or for each child to have their own copy. It is large enough to cut up and for the children to reconstruct the number square like a jigsaw to work on their place value and counting skills.

(0)
This is a single sheet of large addition number sentences with the equals sign both at the end and the beginning. Very useful resource that can be quickly printed and sliced for practical activities or photocopied multiple times for learning.

#### Blank subtraction number sentences

(0)
This is a double sheet of large subtraction number sentences with the equals sign both at the end and the beginning. This is a very useful resource that can be quickly printed and prepared for practical activities or photocopied multiple times for independent work.

#### Whole school Multiplication and Division progression grid

(0)
This is a whole school progression chart to aid the planning of times tables and division tables. The chart can be used by all teachers in the same school to work on a cohesive progression for multiplication and division or it be used by a Mathematics leader/STEM leader for whole school development.

#### 3 questions in 3 minutes Year 3 starter activities

(0)
The purpose of this resource is to develop various aspects of test technique, e.g. working at pace and selecting efficient methods, as well as developing understanding of different question types. Whilst most of the content is from the Year 3 curriculum, questions also include content from Years 2 and 1. This should assist in identifying any gaps in prior learning. The questions are presented in the style of the DfE KS2 tests, so that pupils become familiar with the format. The intention is that pupils complete the three questions in three minutes. The first two challenges model typical questions from the arithmetic paper. The third challenge is modelled on typical questions from the reasoning paper (which can be answered relatively quickly). In addition to giving the solutions (which drop down in a fourth box), a discussion on the strategies used is advised. It is important that pupils develop quick decision making as to whether to solve the arithmetic questions mentally, with a few jottings or by using a standard written method. There is also merit in discussing the requirements of different question types and strategies to support pupils in answering them, e.g. teaching the process of elimination as a strategy for answering multiple choice questions. For questions such as ‘Tick two’ or ‘Circle the number’, it is suggested that pupils record it in their books or on a whiteboard, so that they are practising the format of these question types; the adult can then identify where the question type may be a barrier to learning.

#### Year 2 Place Value, Addition and Subtraction - Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving Mats

(0)
This is a collection of 10 separate A4 “mats” that cover the Year 2 topics for Place Value, Addition and Subtraction. The topics covered are: Representations of numbers Counting forwards and backwards Ordering numbers on labelled number lines Ordering numbers on blank number lines More than and less than a given number 10 more and 10 less than a given number Addition - 2 digit add 1 digit numbers Addition - 2 digit add 2 digit numbers Subtraction - 2 digit subtract 1 digit numbers Subtraction - 2 digit subtract 2 digit numbers These mats are split into 3 distinct columns: Fluency (coloured red), Reasoning (coloured blue) and Problem Solving (coloured green). The fundamental idea is to use these “mats” as either progressive in class questions; consolidation work after a block of teaching; homework sheets or intervention work. These “mats” are definitely not “worksheets” for children to solve quietly in lessons mentally. All of the mats need to be used in combination with a range of practical equipment. Practical equipment is essential for learning these concepts alongside using the visual representations on the mats to reinforce representations and prior learning.

#### Blank more than/less than number sentences

(0)
This is a single sheet of large more than/less number sentences. This is a very useful resource that can be quickly printed and prepared for practical activities or photocopied multiple times for independent work.
