After downloading my first resource over nine years ago and receiving 93,000 viewings, I realised that the sort of resources I create seems to be what busy teachers want. Everything I make is tried and tested on my willing pupils and my aim is for everyone to enjoy and understand the topics I feature.

After downloading my first resource over nine years ago and receiving 93,000 viewings, I realised that the sort of resources I create seems to be what busy teachers want. Everything I make is tried and tested on my willing pupils and my aim is for everyone to enjoy and understand the topics I feature.

#### Fractions - an introduction

(4)
Equilvalent fractions and fractional quanities are explained through a series of simple examples.

#### Telling the Time

(5)
A free resource which covers analogue time as well as 12-hour and 24-hour clock times.

#### Interior angles of polygons

(28)
I made this Powerpoint presentation to show clearly how the interior angles of any polygon are calculated by dividing each polygon into triangles. My pupils already know that the angle sum of a triangle is 180 degrees.

#### Introducing Metric Capacity/Volume

(64)
A Powerpoint presentation to introduce Year 5 pupils to the concept of capacity using metric units of measure. The pupils are asked to estimate the capacity of various containers.

#### Introducing Metric Mass

(36)
A fun PowerPoint presentation, complete with some animation and sound effects, to introduce pupils to the concept of metric weights and measures. It is suitable for KS2 pupils.

#### An introduction to percentages

(33)
It explains what a percentage is, how to convert a percentage to a fraction and a decimal and how to find simple percentages of amounts.

#### Measurement - metric and imperial

(6)
The UK went metric some years ago but not everyone has had the memo! Distances are still measured in miles, market sellers sell their fruit and veg by the lb and most people measure their weight in stones - all very confusing for children who learn about measurement from an early age in school. This PowerPoint explains the history of some of the ancient measures as well as a look at their metric equivalents.

#### Inverse Operations: working backwards to move forwards

(2)
A humorous look at finding an answer using the inverse operation.

#### Venn Diagrams

(1)
A comprehensive resource pack that explains more complex Venn diagrams in detail. The PowerPoint is extremely clear, taking the pupils through the concept of the intersection of two and three sets. There is a fact sheet for pupils as well as a worksheet to consolidate the concept. Answers are supplied.

#### Transformations

(1)
This power-point explains very clearly how translation, reflection and rotation work. It is suitable for a bright Year 5 class as well as for Year 6 and 7 pupils. Worksheets to consolidate each of the three transformations are provided for consolidation.

#### Symmetry - Line & Rotational

(0)
A student-friendly power-point presentation that shows very clearly the two types of symmetry - line and rotational. It contains excellent visual effects showing clearly how symmetry works. An invaluable introduction to symmetry for KS2 as well as a reminder for KS3 pupils.

#### Pi

(0)
This detailed PowerPoint takes the student, step-by-step, through how to obtain Pi and how to use it to calculate the circumference and area of a circle. The concept of Pi is supported by a strong visual element, ensuring that each pupil is able to understand the concept.

#### Introducing Factors

(0)
A basic introduction to factors using the interactive whiteboard.

#### Reflection

(0)
A PowerPoint introduces "Reflection" and this is followed up with a worksheet explaining the process and a second worksheet, with answers, to consolidate the topic. The resources are suitable for Years 5, 6 and 7.

#### Division with remainders

(0)
An excellent resource to show exactly how a number is divided into equal parts and what to do if there is a remainder. Strong visual effects bring home the concept that division is the inverse of multiplication. The presentation makes clear use of a number line that even less-able learners will be able to understand.

#### Twenty Timed Tests

(0)
A series of 20 tests to revise and consolidate the KS2 curriculum. Suitable for Year 6 pupils. The tests, which take no more than 10 to 15 minutes, encourage speed and confidence. Pupils enjoy the repetition of topics which include a variety of number-based questions including fractions, decimals and percentages. There are also Shape and Measure questions and a selection of word problems. An excellent resource for a busy teacher.

#### Multiplying Decimals

(0)
A step-by-step guide to multiplying a decimal by a whole number or by another decimal. It explains in clear steps how the process is helped by the pupil's knowledge of place value.

#### Converting one unit of metric measure to another

(0)
Pupils find it very difficult to convert one unit of metric measurement to another, eg converting kg to g and cm to m. This PowerPoint presentation simplifies the process, breaking the method into simple steps. It is suitable for upper KS2 and lower KS3 pupils.

#### AREA: An introduction to area of a rectangle and area of a triangle

(0)
A clear PowerPoint presentation that show clearly how a formula is obtained to find the area of a rectangle and then the area of a triangle. Pupils are taken through the process step-by-step to ensure understanding.

#### Triangles - a step by step introduction

(0)
This excellent PowerPoint presentation takes the pupils through the basic information needed to understand what triangles are, how to name them and how to prove that the angle sum of a triangle is 180 degrees. It is suitable for Years 4, 5 &amp; 6.
