Year 6 Maths: Reasoning with Number

(0)
This Year 6 example pack contains a range of questions that aim to build skills in Mathematical Reasoning based around Multiplication and Division. Differentiated for Below Age-Related Expectation, at Age-Related Expectation and Greater Depth/Mastery, these questions can be used as an assessment tool or within a lesson. They can easily be stuck into children’s workbooks for them to work out underneath. Each question comes with Teacher Guidance notes to aid NQTs, RQTs as well as experienced teachers. What’s more, the guidance notes ensure the marking of reasoning questions remains consistent. More examples, like these, will be uploaded for different areas of the mathematics curriculum and for other year groups too. Hope they prove useful :)

This example pack contains a comprehensive selection of Mathematical Reasoning Questions based around Addition and Subtraction. They provide children with the opportunity to develop reasoning skills whilst practicing fundamental methods. Each question comes with Teacher Guidance notes so as to maintain consistency when marking reasoning style questions. There are examples of all three levels: Below Age-Related Expectation, Age-Related Expectation and Greater Depth/Mastery. Other areas of the maths curriculum will become available shortly, as well as examples for other year groups - keep a look out! Use them as one-off assessment opportunities or as part of a lesson or as a distance-from-learning task. However you choose to use them, they will provide much needed information on how well children in your cohort are progressing in aspects of Mathematical Reasoning.
Year 3 Maths: Differentiated Questions
Shane20Shane20

Year 3 Maths: Differentiated Questions

(0)
These differentiated assessment materials are divided into the three levels of attainment: Pre-Age Related Expectation, Age Related Expectation and Mastery. Each question card consists of around 6 questions; focusing on the three fundamental aspects of mathematics: Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving. Children are expected to start with Fluency questions and progress to Problem Solving. There is little room for working out, so additional paper will be required for children to record their written answers and calculations. The questions are designed to assess whether children can work independently within the attainment level, at a pace that suits them. Teachers may wish to time the Fluency aspect of the assessment to ensure that the skill is embedded. Similarly, if schools wish to do so, each question card can be used as a distance from learning task to ensure children have retained previously acquired knowledge and skills. The assessments can be done all year round but could be used towards the end of Spring Term and throughout the Summer Term to inform end of year attainment. Answers are not provided, however, guidance on appropriate answers for the Reasoning questions are provided in the Guidance document. The main purpose of the assessments is to inform teacher professional judgement but is not exclusive to this purpose. Teachers may wish to set a question card as homework at the end of a week.

Year 6 SPaG Test: Mark Scheme

(0)
This resource accompanies the Year 6 Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar publication (already on TES). This Mark Scheme is intended to provide consistency when providing answers to the children. Equally, it can be useful for children to use in revision sessions. What’s more, it can help Teaching Assistants to go through SATs style questions with pupils to identify the appropriate answers. Like in the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar SATs paper, most answers are worth one mark each.

Year 6: SPaG Test (with spelling test)

Year 6: SPaG Test (with spelling test)

(0)
This assessment pack contains questions assessing children’s ability across all areas of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar and includes a Spelling Test. It covers curriculum content from the whole of Key Stage Two - so would be ideal for SATs practise. Each question has been labelled with: S for Spelling, P for Punctuation and G for Grammar. This is so children and teachers get a better understanding of which aspect is a strength and/or weakness – hence helping to fine tune revision time. The question cards can be used in different ways. Here are some suggestions: • A single question card in Early Morning Time or use as a starter activity can provide a distance from learning opportunity. • Three or four question cards as a mini-assessment. • Half of the question cards as a formal assessment. The intention of the question cards is to inform Teacher Assessment and to provide a tool for efficient revision time. A mark-scheme is provided so children could test each other in collaborative revision sessions and make notes for personal reflection. Teachers should use their professional judgement whether to time children when completing the question cards. Space has been provided for answers to be recorded on the question card – mimicking the style of the SATs Papers.
