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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 bright display to make your classroom clock look brighter whilst turning it into a resource for telling the time. The following petal cards are included, so that you can edit your clock to best suit your class: Analouge words didgital minutes 24 hours Roman numerals Also included is a set of ‘times of the day’ cards and arrows to point out these times on the clock.
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.
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.
Set of 50 arithmetic starters with answers suitable for lower key stage two A variety of quick activities to practise the four operations at the start of maths lessons or as morning work. The difficulty of the starters vary meaning that different slides can be selected to suit the needs of your specific class. This set of starters has more addition and subtraction questions (see my other sets for more division and multiplication).
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.
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.
UKS2 40 English/literacy morning work/starters/homework/SATs practice differentiated task/activities
Lots of differentiated literacy challenges suitable for UKS2. Perfect as morning work, starters or time fillers. Each slide has 3 challenges. Challenge 1 asks children to find synonyms or antonyms of commonly over used words, challenge 2 looks at figurative language and challenge 3 asks that children write a short paragraph using a sentence opener and requests that they use a specific feature of writing taken from the UKS2 writing objectives. To differentiate, children could be asked to work from challenge 1-3, or they could be given a specific challenge to look at. They would also work well as homework tasks.
Big set of bright, colourful Christmas themed Mud Kitched recipe cards. With numbers from 1-10, these cards promote counting through loose parts and outdoor play. 6 of the 16 cards are blank for children to make their own recipes. Laminate to create a fun,festive mud kitchen cook book!
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.
This is a fun and active maths lesson for teaching time. I did this in the hall, we used hula hoops as our clock faces and arranged the numbers and clock hands around these. It would also be a great outdoors activity to inject some fun into maths! The bundle includes numbers 1-24 and roman numerals I - XII, meaning that the clock is a flexible resource to be used in lots of ways with children of a variety of ages. There are 5 sets of challenge cards- o’clock and half past, 15 minute intervals, 5 minute intervals, 1 minute intervals and converting to the 24hr clock. These would all work very well with the roman numerals as well as the numbers. Depending on the age/level of the children, simply setting up the roman numeral clock may be a challenge! The challenge cards work well to meet objectives across KS1 and LKS2 and also as differentiation within a year group or as a recap of prior learning.
Two step by step posters to explain the expanded column method of addition and subtraction in a simple and visual way. I found that they work well when printed on A3.
