Arithmetic Treasure Hunt KS2

(1)
This is a “Maths on the Move” activity. it comprises of twenty A5 cards which can be placed around a classroom or even better the playground. Each card contains an arithmetic question. The questions are based on the Year Six SATs arithmetic paper. THey are supplied in pdf and also Publisher format so can be easily edited if required. Each child (or pair) has a copy of the supplied answer sheet and have to find the cards before answering the question. The teacher has a sheet with all the questions and answers so can check each answer as the children find them. This is a great activity for keeping children active as well as learning maths. I have used it very successfully either as a pre-SATs revision session or after SATs to use some of their newly acquired maths skills! I hope you find this activity useful and fun! Thanks for your interest in my maths resources. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

Rounding numbers to nearest 10 and 100. A game for two players

(0)
My children love this game. It reinforces the concept of rounding numbers. Pupils are given a game board which is a grid with random 3 digit numbers. They throw a die three times to generate a 3-digit number. They can choose the order of the digits. They have to round the number to the nearest 10 or 100 depending on the particular game and colour the rounded number n the grid. . Players take turns with the winner being the first to colour a line of four. I have included game boards for rounding 3 digit numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. The resource is supplied as a WOrd Document aS well as a pdf. The beauty of this resource is that it could very easily be adapted to use larger or smaller numbers, A nice extension would be for children to choose the numbers to place in a blank grid. Which numbers would be best? Thank you for your interest in my maths resources. I so hope you find them useful.
Compass directions. Treasure maps project.

Compass directions. Treasure maps project.

(0)
This is a complete project which looks at compass directions but also brings in super great opportunities for artwork and being creative. Children are presented with a hand drawn treasure map that has recently been discovered. There are also several sets of directions which the children have to follow to locate each treasure. The 8 point compass is used. Children can also "bury" some treasure of their on on the map and write directions. Children are then given a blank parchment and have to design their own treasure map. This is where the creativity comes in! It might be worth showing them a few examples from the internet for ideas. They then have to "bury" their treasure at different locations and wrote instructions. they can then exchange with a friend and find each others treasure. great fun! This is useful for teaching/re-enforcing compass directions. It is also great for Year 6 after SATs and can quite easily last for several lessons. I do it every year and my children love it!

Number sequences and patterns KS2

(0)
This is a PowerPoint which explores numbers sequences and patterns and is designed for upper KS2. It asks children to identify patterns, to find missing numbers and to continue sequences. I have found it particularly successful with Year 6 as its contains several original questions which are based on recent SATs questions. It would be useful therefore for revision leading up to End-of-Key stage tests.

Mental maths dice game
arainearaine

Mental maths dice game

(0)
Here’s a great game for developing mental maths skills. Children have to roll three dice. They use the numbers they roll to make as many totals as possible. For example, suppose they roll 1, 3, 5, they could then make these totals 3 x 5 + 1 = 16 5 — 1 — 3 = 1 13 x 5 = 65 3 + (1 x 5) = 8 They can use any operation sign ( + - x ÷ ) and also brackets to show the order of operation. As they make a number, they colour it on the grid. Eventually they will not be able to make any more numbers. At this point, roll the dice again and use a different colour. The challenge is to complete the grid, making every number whilst using as few colours and as few rolls of the dice as possible. Is it possible to complete the whole grid? Which numbers were hardest? Were any numbers impossible to make? Ideal for upper KS2 or lower KS3
