Get your new class to learn about each other with these start of school year / back to school activities.
* Getting to know you grid: This is great if you have a class who don’t really know each other very well. Students need to move around asking others if they fulfil one of these things.
* Getting to know you game: This can be played in pairs or threes. Roll a dice, move that number of spaces and simply give the information that has been asked for.
* We are all a piece of this class: This can be an individual activity where the student writes and draws about themselves. They need to think about presentation so that this can then be displayed in the classroom.
* What would your shield say about you?: This can be an individual activity where the student writes and draws about themselves. They need to think about presentation so that this too can then be displayed in the classroom.

Included in this pack are 48 o’clock and half past jigsaws, 24 Matching the Clock With the Time cards and 3 games which focus on clocks with only o’clock, only half past and then both. Particularly suitable for Year 1.

They could be used by having students peg the correct answer or draw a line from the clock to the correct answer. Or a hole could be punched and using a long shoe lace, students can match clock with the time. This will also help hand-eye coordination. Answers are included.
*3 games for students to tell the time at each move.
*24 jigsaws for matching fun clocks and time in words.
These activities support the Year 2 NC Mathematics Programme of Study:

Want your students to practise the grid method and formal written methods for multiplication but want something more than just boring calculations? Look no further! Included in this package are 32 tasks cards each with 2 spot the mistake tasks to engage, enrich and extend understanding of the grid method and formal written methods for TUxU and HTUxU.
There are 8 tasks for each type of method so work can differentiated across the class depending on their ability and understanding of the different written methods. They could also be used into conjunction with manipulatives and resources.
8 calculations for each method, 2 on each sheet. Each calculation has an error – wrong multiplication fact, incorrect addition, amounts not carried to the next column etc. Students can identify what is the error, explain clearly the mistake and suggest advice as if they were the teacher. Finally the correct calculation can be written.
There are 4 different written methods for TU x U, grid method and formal written methods. 4 different written methods for HTU x U – grid method and formal written methods.
All xU are x3, x4 or x5 so students concentrate on the method rather than the multiplication facts.
The task cards have been made so that they are easy to photocopy and use. They could be enlarged for those who need more space for their writing.
They could be used as an activity for individuals or students could work in a group of 4 and each complete the first box and then pass to the person on their left, complete the next section and pass again until all the sections are completed. The first box could be used just on its own and students just spot the mistake and write the correct answer in their books – the possibilities are endless! Answers are included.
This activity relates to NC Mathematics Programme of Study:
Yr 3 - Write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that they know, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods

This is a ‘whodunnit’ type of activity linked to the Ancient Romans where a Roman Imperial Centurion helmet has been stolen. Students need to work out who stole it, at what time and where is can now be found. It is aimed at Year 4 objectives.
On the sheet, they are given 6 possible answers for each part of the crime and each time they get an answer correct they are given a clue as a co-ordinate. Students need to use the grid to find that particular co-ordinate and that will give them an answer in the form of a time, place or person. This answer needs to then be crossed out on the main sheet. The three boxes which are not crossed out at the end will reveal who stole the helmet, when and where it can now be found.
There are 15 Roman numerals questions which focus on the Year 4 objective:
Read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C) and know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of 0 and place value.
These objectives are also covered in this whodunnit activity:
Read, write and convert time between analogue and digital 12- and 24-hour clocks
Describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant

A fun and engaging activity for the whole class to ask each other questions linked to books they have read. Can they find someone who has read a book that has a monster in it or where good beats evil?
Great Key Stage 2 worksheet for World Book Day.

Enjoyed taking part in the White Rose Maths Hub Barvember? Here is an advent calendar with a difference - 4 word problems, everyday for 1st Dec to 24th Dec.
Included in this package are 4 word problems for 1st December to 24th December which encourage the use of the bar model.

This advent calen’bar’ provides an opportunity for everyone to just do some maths and enjoy the run up to Christmas.
Numbers 1 & 2 are simpler problems that involve 1 or two steps. This would be suitable for children who are younger or less confident using the bar model. Numbers 3 & 4 are slightly more complex and require several steps before solving the problem.
The PowerPoint includes all the of problems which could be displayed on the class whiteboard for the class to solve. I have included a black line smaller version of all the questions so that they could be printed off and stuck in books.
You could do these questions every day until the end of the school term, send the weekend dates home as homework or it could be used as a larger session where these problems could be posted around the room or even around the school and everyone takes part. Have some Christmas maths fun!
