Fractions of Numbers Lesson on Powerpoint

Fractions of Numbers Lesson on Powerpoint

Exercises involving fractions of numbers (e.g. 2/5 of 240) that can first be discussed as a class leading into paired work. The powerpoint discusses the formulas used for working out fractions of numbers and also touches on the point that, when dealing with fractions, X and OF mean the same thing. To finish with, plenary-wise, there is a task that children can complete (either in pairs or individually) geared to their level confidence at this particular point. Together with good quality questioning, this should prove to be useful resource across Key Stage 2 (particularly in Years 5/6).

Identifying Different Clause Types Worksheet - Year 6 GPS.

Identifying Different Clause Types Worksheet - Year 6 GPS.

Worksheet designed for GPS practise in year 6. I have noticed that children often confuse themselves when asked to circle or underline clauses or just conjunctions (often underlining the whole clause when just the conjunction was asked for). This practise sheet should help as a revision exercise in the build-up to the GPS SAT paper.

Macbeth - An adapted script for KS2

Macbeth - An adapted script for KS2

Contains some original wording from the Shakespeare script. Some of the names and places are local to me and can be easily adapted to suit other geographical regions. I had my year 6s perform this as a film and it worked very well. Both children and parents greatly enjoyed the experience.

Reading Comprehension - short exercise using true/false/fact/opinion

Reading Comprehension - short exercise using true/false/fact/opinion

I sometimes find children can be slightly unclear on the actual difference between fact and opinion. This always seems to come up in the SAT reading papers so I constructed this short exercise that incorporates a passage on New York. Should serve well as a 10 minute starter that can be discussed as a class afterwards. Alternatively, it could serve as a shared class reading exercise.

Identifying Subordinate Conjunctions and Clauses (GPS Revision)
