This is a maths problem to get children to understand the fractions 1/2 and 1/4 and use language such as double and half the length. I used this with a Year 2 class alongside practical resources to help their understanding of fractions. The resource is differentiated x 3 ways and has 2 differentiated extension tasks. Differentiation: Green HA Orange MA Blue LA
A scavenger hunt for children to find items around the surrounding space that measure different lengths and heights. Measurements include mm, cm and metres. There are also some non-standard measurements to find such as 'as tall as your friend' and 'as long as your arm'. Fun activity that lasts a full lesson.
These pyramids require children to use their addition and number skills to make different totals. Each box must be the product of the 2 boxes below it. This requires lots of maths skills and problem solving. Can be differentiated many ways to make many totals at the top of the pyramids as all number boxes are editable. Fun activity to reinforce addition. Also included blank pyramids for the children to make their own totals as an extension.
This is a fun approach to introducing and using a systematic approach. The elves have been given specific coloured outfits but they want to swap them around to change up their outfits. The problem requires children to use a system to ensure that they record all of the outfit possibilities. Resource is differentiated x 3 ways and is editable. Elf outfit templates included. Enjoy!
There are 3 activities for a Year 2 class to use column addition to solve a problem. The lower and middle activity requires children to try arranging 2 digit numbers to make the biggest and smallest totals they can find. The higher activity requires 4 numbers to be arranged into a grid with a set of instructions to make a total of less than 100. This includes adding the columns and rows then totalling the answers together. This really challenged my HA and had lots of opportunities to practise column addition.
Puzzle 1 The numbers must add up to the same number for each row and column and diagonal. You can only use a number once for each present. A fun way to challenge children to add different numbers together. Lots of problem solving and number skills are used for this activity. Suitable for all KS1 as different numbers can be used in the boxes (presents). Puzzle 2 (HA) Children must try a range of 2 digit numbers to total less than 100 by adding all of the columns and rows together in the magic box. This takes numerous attempts to solve the problem and is good for reinforcing column addition to add 2 digit numbers together. Uses good problem solving skills and mastery skills when selecting the right digits.
A smartboard presentation / activity to introduce column addition and subtraction. Included lots of interactive slides for children to get involved and complete the calculations.
A range of sharing/ division problems that involve using different skills to solve the problem. Suitable for LA and HA kS1 as can be differentiated using resources to assist. Problems are set out in a slip format to stick into their books and show their working out underneath. Lolly problem is already differentiated x3 ways you will just need to change the group names. Resources are editable.
A detailed Notebook containing learning objectives, starter activities and challenges for adding and subtracting multiples of ten. Covers a series of lessons that practise adding multiples of 10, adding near multiples, making totals of money, mentally adding multiples of 10 with and without coins, subtracting multiples of 10, subtracting near multiples. Games differentiated 3 ways for Year 2 stage.
There is a smart board presentation to help teach addition and subtraction (giving change) of money. Many of the lessons were practical however I taught my class the column method at the same time, so this features throughout. In this bundle there is: Differentiated money problems (mainly addition) Reasoning and Problem solving activities inc. starter and challenge (differentiated X 3) Cool Cat cafe money problem sheet (differentiated X 3) Column addition mat to laminate for resources Lower ability coin match worksheet Reasoning practical tasks sheet containing 7 'convince me'style tasks and challenges Giving change money word problems (differentiated X 4)
This is a Smart board containing 2 pages of missing number problems for Year 2 multiplication and division facts. The missing numbers are replaced by Christmas emoji symbols and must be completed from the top down in order to get to the end of the problem. There is also a word document containing 3 abilities of challenges. Ideally for Year 1 / 2 as contains multiplication and division facts from the 2, 5 and 10 X tables. I cut them up and let the children access the HA as a challenge, etc. Enjoy!
I made this smart notebook resource to prepare my children for the maths reasoning and arithmetic sats papers by recapping most of the year 2 curriculum. It has also been a great resource to review and practise a lot of different methods that we haven’t used for a while. The smart notebook has 21 different pages that recap different areas of Maths. Very good for Year 2 morning activities and lesson starters! The resource features; arithmetic paper questions, missing number sentences, using the inverse to solve missing numbers, morning brain teasers, addition & subtraction practise, practising column method, finding the difference, missing number sequences, missing symbols, writing the time, a range of word problems, fractions of shapes, visual problems, larger 2 - 3 step problem tasks and reasoning paper style questions.
This resource requires children to compare multiplication questions using more than, less than or = signs. Each sheet has space underneath for an array to be drawn or working out. It is differentiated 4 times. A mastery differentiation also requires doubling / halving skills as well as multiplication. There is an extension word problem to further challenge children about the lengths of a pool. This extension revisits repeated addition as well as visualising a multiplication. Suitable for most of KS1 and editable.
