Year 6 SATS Arithmetic Misconceptions - The 4 Operations - Spot the mistakes

(0)
This is a 5 page worksheet with 6 questions and answer for each of the 4 operations. It shows a method which is incorrect for some reason, e.g. switching the digits, forgetting the decimal place, lining the digits up incorrectly, adding instead of multiplying. Typical mistakes! The children have to identify the mistake, explain where I went wrong and find the correct answer. I always find its useful to show children a wrong example to help them embed the correct method and avoid these mistakes themselves.

This is a very comprehension unit of work with many worksheets and activities about the Aztecs and Mexico in the past and in the modern day. It allows pupils to draw comparisons. The unit explores Aztec religious beliefs, significant places, human sacrifice, foods, transport, warfare. There is a very detailed flipchart for each lesson with lots of information, links and questions. I hope you enjoy it!

Building self-esteem and confidence - PSHE KS2 Lesson Plan and Powerpoint

(0)
This resource contains a day's worth of lessons on self-esteem. I planned these lessons to for a project our school is involved in called 'Gr8 as U R' which has the aim of improving relationships between pupils by building confidence and self worth. It links to the PSHE curriculum. There are a range of activities: group discussions, art, vocabulary work, independent reflections. These are supported through the accompanying power point.
Autumn Term / Spring term Year 6 Arithmetic Revision for SATS

Autumn Term / Spring term Year 6 Arithmetic Revision for SATS

(0)
This is a non-threatening assessment / activity for pupils to complete in pairs while supporting each other. I created it because I'd like to know how much my pupils have forgotten of their basic skills during the Christmas break so that I can support them better. It is based on arithmetic topics covered in Autumn 1: rounding, place value, 4 operations, fractions. There are a range of questions - some purely fluency based but with some reasoning and problem solving in there too. It is very SAT-sy in the style and level of questions. It ends with an extension looking at square number patterns and why they occur.
Year 5/6 Exploring Coordinates (1 quadrant and 4 quadrant) including links to shape

Year 5/6 Exploring Coordinates (1 quadrant and 4 quadrant) including links to shape

(0)
This is a flipchart I designed for my Year 6 middle ability maths group. We were introducing coordinates for the first time in Year 6. The flipchart starts by exploring a single quadrant, plotting points which make shapes, exploring patterns in vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines. The flipchart then progresses (in Session 2) to exploring the 4 quadrant grid in a similar way. Links are made to 2D shapes (e.g. find the missing corner). There are many opportunities for children to discuss connections and patterns throughout.
Year 6 Arithmetic Revision Sheet for SATS preparation

Year 6 Arithmetic Revision Sheet for SATS preparation

(0)
This is a sheet I created for my Year 6 middle ability maths group who are now revising for their SATS. The sheet is organised into topics: the 4 operations, calculating with fractions, percentages, BODMAS and squared and cubed. I chose these topics because these are things I know my group struggle with / need more practice on. Each topic is marked out of 3, total marks of 33. At the end, there is an opportunity for pupils to self-assess (after the sheet has been marked as a class) which topics are their strongest/weakest. In my class, we are going to give 3 and a half minutes per 3 questions.

Times Table Tracking Sheet Record of Progress with Differentiated Awards and Pattern-Spotting

(0)
This is a sheet I developed to track progress against times tables in my school. Each child has a laminated copy of the sheet which is then ticked off using a sharpie. There are different levels of achievement the children can reach for Reciting in Order, Random order, Using in context, and Division facts with Dojo points (our reward system). There is also a document giving some ideas about how to teach times tables effectively and how the tracking sheet could be used.

Differentiated speech worksheets : punctuating speech, reported speech, dialogue layout, purpose

(0)
Three worksheets about speech suitable for KS2. The first sheet is all about punctuating direct speech and the two main purposes of speech: to convey character or advance the action. The second sheet is all about setting out dialogue correctly. The third sheet is about converting between direct and reported speech. All sheets have two different levels: 'Feeling Fine' and 'Feeling Confident'. All can be edited.
