Equivalent fractions decimals percentages

(0)
This resource comprises of a Powerpoint and supporting two page activity sheets. The Powerpoint clearly demonstrates visually the equivalence of fractions decimals and percentages. It does so by representing a percentage as a corresponding decimals and fraction. a visual representation is then shown on a 100 grid. SEveral examples are given. The supporting worksheets ask pupils to roll two dice to generate a percentage which they then have to represent in a similar manner as the PowerPoint presentation. The worksheets are supplied as a pdf and also as a Publisher file to facilitate easy amendnent should you require. Thank you for your interest in my maths resources. i do 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!

Reading and interpreting line graphs

(0)
This is a PowerPoint presentation which focuses on reading and interpreting line graphs. Several examples of questions are given. Pupils are shown through animations how to read information from a line graph. They are also shown how to interpret reading on a scale and to work out the range between two values. This presentation has been designed in particular for Year 6 pupils and would be ideal for SATs revision. However, it would be appropriate for pupils in upper KS2 or lower KS3.

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.

Arithmetic Treasure Hunt KS2

(0)
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.

This is a set of 24 cards. Pupils have to pair the mixed numbers with the improper fractions. i have used this successfully in two ways. 1) Ask pupils to cut up cards and place face down on table. Play with a partner. Take turns to pick up a pair. If they match, keep the pair and have another go. Keep playing until all cards matched. 2) Pupils can then stick them in their maths books in pairs as a record of the activity.

This is a PowerPoint presentation which focuses on the relationship between area and perimeter of 2D shapes. Firstly some rectangles are shown and pupils have to work out the area and perimeters of each. The presentation then progresses to looking at irregular shapes and examining the largest and smallest possible perimeters for a given area. The presentation finishes by posing the pupils two challenges which require squared paper. Namely for firstly rectangular and then irregular shapes, can they different shapes of a specified area and then investigate the largest and smallest possible perimeter for each.
