Multiplication Olympics - Times Tables - Game - Quiz - Whole School Resources - KS2 - Year 3 4 5 6

(6)
The times table test has been mentioned in the government and we have been using this resource in our school for a while now and it work effectively to improve children's knowledge of their times tables. It is split into 7 levels. I only allow my children to move up if they correctly answer the Olympic sheet 100% correctly on 3 occasions. We tend to do these sheets on Monday's and Fridays as a 3 minute starter. My TA then marks them quickly using the answer sheets but only for children who have answered all questions. As soon as she reaches the first mistake she stops. In the younger classes we give the children a medal each time they move up a podium. In this pack I have included all 7 times table challenge sheets. 7 Answer Sheets. All display resources, as we have made a display of these resources in each of the ks2 classrooms. I have also included my multiplication Olympic tracker which tracks the progress of the children. Finalist Level - We know our 2, 5 and 10 times table and can recall a selection of multiplication and division questions in three minutes Bronze Level - We know our 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times table and can recall a selection of multiplication and division questions in three minutes Silver Level - We know our 3, 4, 6 and 11 times table and can recall a selection of multiplication and division questions in three minutes Gold Level - We know our 7, 8, 9 and 12 times table and can recall a selection of multiplication and division questions in three minutes European Level - We know our tables up to the 12 times table and can recall a selection of multiplication and division questions in three minutes. Olympic Level - We know our tables up to the 12 times table and can recall 100 multiplication and division questions in three minutes. Tough Level - We know our tables up to the 12 times table and can use these to recall facts including those with decimals. Enjoy!

After the government set out the 2016 exemplification materials for writing, like many year 5/6 teachers I panicked slightly! I have produced some short units of work which work around the above age related exemplification materials set out by the government. This is my 4th unit of work and is based around Newspaper Reports. Firstly children look at the effectiveness of different newspaper reports, and the children learn to write their own. Children learn how to use colons and semi colons to mark different clauses in their writing..They then write a newspaper report about a snake escape which is a free interactive resources created by TES or its Iboard (http://www.iboard.co.uk/iwb/Journalist-Desk-Snake-Escape-524). The snake escape interactive resources produced on Iboard is excellent!! The children really engage with it and really enjoyed this unit! I've used this amazing resource and created planning to fit my mixed year 5/6 group. The pieces of writing they produced were excellent! All of my children hit the standard of children writing at the expected standard. In this pack I have included the medium term plan which is 13 days planning which is differentiated into 3 groups! 11 Powerpoints with learning objectives and resources. Some worksheets/activities, success criteria for each of my groups and planning frames.

After the government set out the 2016 exemplification materials for writing, like many year 5/6 teachers I panicked slightly! I have produced some short units of work which work around the above age related exemplification materials set out by the government. One of the units of work is for explanation texts! First children look at the effectiveness of different explanations, and the children learn to develop their own explanations. Children learn how to use colons and semi colons to mark boundary’s between clauses in their writing. They then write an explanation text about chickens! (Linked with science week!) We had an incubator in school with four chick eggs in. Throughout the week they hatched which helped to keep the children engaged! The pieces of writing they produced were excellent! All of my children hit the standard of children writing at the expected standard. In this pack I have included only the medium term plan, which is 7 days worth of planning differentiated into 3 group. I've also included 4 powerpoints. The other resources I used were from twinkl and are easy to find.
