Counting to 20

(2)
Great worksheet to help children learn the numbers to 20. Should be supported by number lines as a visual aid.

Chocolate Themed Enterprise Week

(2)
A fantastic resource for a full week - encouraging children to think like entrepreneurs! The task is to create a brand new box of chocolates. From designing the chocolates and making the packaging, to writing a persuasive speech and presenting their products to the class! It gets the children to think about costing their chocolates - market research and conducting questionnaires. The children work in groups in the style of 'The Apprentice'.
Year 3 Perimeter Problem Solving

Year 3 Perimeter Problem Solving

(0)
A lesson for year 3 based on solving perimeter problems. This lesson builds on a knowledge of regular 2D shapes and shows a variety of different problems. The slides require you to begin by modeling problem solving before the children work independently. Finally, there is a ‘Chilli Challenge’ that can be supplemented with work that you feel suits the needs of your class based on AfL. I usually do fluency practice with children working towards the expected standard, varied fluency with children working at the expected standard and ensure my greater depth children are doing problem solving.
Year 3 Calculating Perimeter

Year 3 Calculating Perimeter

(1)
A lesson designed to calculate the perimeter of simple 2D shapes. The lesson is based on finding the perimeter of rectangles and squares. There is an element of ruler skills for measuring sides of rectangles. Finally, there is a ‘Chilli Challenge’ that can be supplemented with work that you feel suits the needs of your class based on AfL. I usually do fluency practice with children working towards the expected standard, varied fluency with children working at the expected standard and ensure my greater depth children are doing problem solving.

A carousel lesson for KS1 investigating 2D and 3D shapes. Very interactive activities. Included in the resource are a lesson plan and some shape in the environment images.

Number bonds to 10 and 20 game

Each set of cards comes in yellow and orange. The idea is to pick one yellow card and then find its matching number bond. This is mainly a KS1 activity. However, I did use it with a year 4 class as a refresher activity and they loved it!
Year 5 Decimals Lesson Pack

Year 5 Decimals Lesson Pack

(0)
This is a pack of lessons I have used to teach the decimals objectives in year 5. I found that using multibase helped visually support the place value for the children - that is what the symbols on the slides refer to but can be removed if necessary. Each lesson follows a similar format for familiarity and continuity. This was taught using Target Your Maths - Year 5 for the independent work the children carried. Again, this can be changed to suit your class.

2D Shape Introduction

(0)
Great lesson for KS1. There is a landscape image made up of 2D shapes, which ones can you spot? There is also a set of 2D shape matching cards, match the properties to the shape. The extension is a worksheet/activity for finding 2D shapes within the classroom. This was an observation lesson rated OUTSTANDING.
The Apprentice Maths Week

The Apprentice Maths Week

(0)
Fantastic resource that I use at the end of the year for a weeks worth of maths lessons. It is based on an Apprentice style buying/selling activity. It promotes teamwork and leadership skills but all uses core maths and organisational skills. The 'whole lesson' notebook file explains each step of the process. I found it useful to show the class an episode of 'Young Apprentice' where they complete a similar task.
Introducing Time KS2

Introducing Time KS2

(0)
A selection of worksheets to use when beginning time in KS2. This looks at how to tell the time in analogue and digital. It also looks at converting between the 12 and 24hr clocks. This is two lessons worth that I taught to Year 4. One of the lessons I was observed OUTSTANDING on.
2D Shape Bingo Game

2D Shape Bingo Game

(4)
This is a really simple game for KS1 or Lower KS2 children. You can use your own descriptions of shape properties and all the children have to do is work out what shape you are describing! Good plenary activity
Recognising Types of Angles

Recognising Types of Angles

(0)
A lesson to help children learn about acute, obtuse, reflex and right angles. There are lots of whole class and talk partner activities. The outcomes being that children can draw each type of angle and estimate the size of given angles.
