Full lesson on introducing equivalent fractions to year 3. This is a hands on lesson- children will spend the full lesson exploring fractions through cuisenaire rods. I carried this lesson out with the children working in small groups. I blew the included recording sheet up to A3. There is a box for them to physically place their cuisenaire rods down and record the fractions that they represent. There are more boxes for children to record equivalent fractions. I then took a photograph of the completed sheet as evidence for children’s books (there is space for names on the sheet to make this easier!). Included is a power point (with learning objective, lots of mathematical questions and plenary), recording sheet and a fraction wall display poster (I blew this up to A3 for my working wall and reduced it to A5 for each child to stick into the back of their maths books for future reference).
Everything that is needed to create an English working wall display in a year two classroom. All these resources have been created with a natural theme to make them bold and easy to see. Files Include: Main title bunting Sub-titles to arrange the display in different sections conjunctions a wide range of synonyms for commonly over used words Punctuation posters sentence starters year 1 common exception words year two common exception words Different writing types
A big set of 11 punctuation display posters Perfect for your English working wall Natural, leaf pattern borders
Everything that is needed to create a maths working wall display in a year two classroom with the focus of place value. These resources have been designed to be interactive and to fully support the teaching of WRM (White Rose Maths) Year 2, Autumn block 1. The files contain a bunting header plus lots of other subheadings and interactive questions. Also included are templates such as tens frames, place value charts, part-whole models as well as pictorial representations of concrete resouces such as base 10, place value counters etc. There are other decorative bits and pieces such as speech bubbles and arrows and frames to be laminated and written on by adults and children.
A power point that contains 40 sets of maths arithmetic challenges. I will be using these as morning work with my year 6 class to provide extra opportunity to practise using the four operations. The questions alternate between straight forward calculations and find the missing digits questions. They are differentiated A-C. A questions do not involve exchanging or carrying and so are ideal for LA or MA/HA to complete mentally. B involves exchanging and carrying and C involved decimals up to three decimal places. Each day has two slides- the questions and then the answers and so are easy for children to self-assess. The title slide says morning work, autumn 1 as this is when I will be using them but this could easily be changed if needed. I aim to create further sets for the rest of the year, as I do I will upload them to TES.
Synonyms for eight ‘boring’ words to make children’s writing more interesting. There are A4 display posters and a table resource included. The table resource is the same as the display posters but reduced in size. I print, laminate and clip them all together with a treasury tag to make a handy fan for children to use when writing or editing.
Non-chronological report WAGOLL on snakes. Includes one version of just the WAGOLL and two differentiated versions complete with features to spot and a handy key so that children can colour code the feautes that they find. There is a higher and lower ability version, the HA version has more features to look out for.
Fun maths cafe activity for year 2. A good consolidation activity for the end of a unit on measurement with money. Covers finding the total of different items, finding out how much change would be given and two step problems. I used this at the end of the White Rose Maths Autumn Block 3 unit on money. HA questions are word problems, children have to read and understand the questions and decide what operation to use independently. MA questions have bar models to support children’s calculations. These bar models have parts filled in to begin with but gradually, less is filled in to encourage independence. Some two step problems also included to provide an extra challenge.
Big set of mud kitchen recipe cards and 'make your own' recipe to promote counting in the EYFS maths
Big set of mud kitchen recipe cards- 10 different recipes and some ‘my mud recipe’ cards for the children to write numbers when planning their recipe. Simply laminate and keep near the mud kitchen- I bound them together to make a recipe book! Promotes counting and number recognition. A good enhancement to outdoor provision and encourages the children to develop creative ways of using loose parts.
Here is another set (see my other resources for more!) of numeracy starters, ideal for use with UKS2. (EDITED- there had been some mistakes, these have now been checked and are all correct!) Each set has 4 questions- one for each of the four operations. The three sets increase in difficulty. UKS2 children should be able to quickly do the easiest set mentally, the hardest set includes decimals. I use these on a morning while taking the register- challenge the children to complete them all in 10 minutes, then I put the answers on the board and they self assess them. This is great speed practice in the run up to SATs. Would also work very well as a quick starter in maths lessons.
Everything that is needed to create a maths working wall display in a year two classroom with the focus of addition and subtraction. These resources have been designed to be interactive and to fully support the teaching of WRM (White Rose Maths) Year 2, addition and subtraction unit.
A power point that contains 40 sets of maths arithmetic challenges. I used these as morning work with my year 6 class to provide extra opportunity to practise using the four operations. The questions alternate between straight forward calculations, finding the missing digits questions and multiply and dividing by 10, 100 and 1,000. They are differentiated A-C. A questions do not involve exchanging or carrying and so are ideal for LA or MA/HA to complete mentally. B involves exchanging and carrying and C involved decimals up to three decimal places. Each day has two slides- the questions and then the answers and so are easy for children to self-assess. The title slide says morning work, autumn 2 as this is when I used them but this could easily be changed if needed. I have more sets available.
Number bonds to 10 and 20 display on jigsaw pieces *EASY TO SEE* maths working wall year 1 and 2 KS1
Number bonds to 10 and 20 on bright jigsaw pieces. I made these because I wanted to display number bonds i a way that was clear and easy to see and everything I saw online had lots of patterns on them making them distracting and hard to focus on from the back of the classroom.
LO: To be able to identify the different parts of a flowering plant and discuss their roles in plant reproduction. Used with year 5 and 6 to look at the different parts of a flower and their role in sexual reproduction. HA sheet requires pupils to fill in name and function. LA sheet requires children to fill in function only.
Editing station prompts. There are 8 different stations all together, more than I would use in one lesson but the range of them allows you to choose what is relevant to the specific genre of writing that you are looking at. These are also editable. Each station gives an editing focus and has the kinds of questions as prompts that an adult would ask if they were working 1:1 with the child. They also give the children ideas of how to independently up-level their work (for example, instructions on creating fronted adverbials or directing children to use classroom resources such as dictionaries, thesaurus or the working wall.) Used often enough, the children will become increasingly able to focus on specific areas of improvement when editing their work, rather then perhaps editing a couple of spelling before saying that they are finished- which is what my class used to do! Also included is a half sized version of each prompt- perfect for display, whilst not taking up too much room on your working wall.
KS2 differentiated writing a diary entry WAGOLL editable with features to spot & colour coding boxes
Diary entry WAGOLL. Diary entry about watching fireworks from the point of view of a child who is scared of the dark and fireworks. At the right hand side, there is a section showing what features to find and a box for each feature to allow children to create a colour coded key. This is differentiated three ways- children must look for increasingly complex features. Fully editable so you can add/remove features to suit your class.
Bundle of resources for KS2 non-chronological report writing. I used these resources to write non-chronological reprots on volcanoes, but I have kept the resources generic so you could use them to write reports on any subject. (The WAGOLL is about snakes.) The following is included: PowerPoint presentation that goes through the entire unit of work from introducing what non-chronological reports are, throught looking at features, planning and writing the reports. WAGOLL , three are included, one is a basic WAGOLL and the other two have features to spot with boxes for colour coding, these are differentiated for higher and lower abilities.on different sections of this and used it for peer-assessment. One of the slides on the PowerPoint has a cmpleted WAGOLL features slide. I zoomed in Working wall poster for writing in first/second/third person. Worksheet to practise writing in third person (I used this as homework). Non-chronological report planning sheet which follows the format of the WAGOLL. Non-chronological report write up sheet.
A big set of 40 arithmetic starters with answers for self or peer assessment. Perfect as maths starters or morning work. 3 difficulty levels: The first for children below expected or for expected/greater depth children to practise instant recall of number facts. These questions deal with numbers to 30 and 2 x table only. The second looks at 10x table and addition and subtraction where carrying and exchanging is not needed. The third looks at 5 x table and addition and subtraction where carrying and exchanging is needed.
Display poster showing a range of animals that lay eggs. Animals are from different classification groups such as birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and insects. Real photographs used on a natural hessian background. A good addition to an investigation area or to encourage discussion and generate questions.
20 bright and colourful fact cards about caterpillars and butterflies. I used these to set up a science investigation area in year 2 when we had caterpillars that we kept to observe and release as they turned into butterflies. (I also sell them in a bundle with matching display title bunting and key vocabulary) These cards concentrate on the things that children will notice while the caterpillars are in the classroom. They allow the children to find out about what they can see happening. These cards are also a geat resource for teachers and support staff to explain what is happening and answer any tricky questions that the children might ask!
