Lots of resources aimed at Primary age children. I am a Maths Subject Leader and have taught all these lessons myself!

#### 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

#### Inventions Game

(4)
I used this 'top trump' presentation to model how to make a top trump card for a victorian invention. I provided factsheets for around 20 different inventions and blank versions of the card. The children had to rate their invention out of 10 for impact it had on daily life, accessibility a working class victorian had to it, the year it was made (the earlier the better), do we use it now and ingenuity of the design. The children made one each and we played as a class.

#### Counting to 20

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

#### Story Opening Prompts

(3)
These are 3 images that the children can choose from. They work well to spark their imaginations for story openings, with a focus on setting description. My year 5's enjoyed deciding upon their character in the image and developing their thoughts and feelings.

#### Journey Down The Nile - ppt

(1)
I used this for a music lesson, play the slide (the boat moves after about 5secs). assign groups different sections (eg pyramids, pharaoh etc) they compose a piece of music for that section and as the boat passes each group plays in turn, fading in and fading out.

#### Teachers Large Number Fan

(1)
Can be used for modelling, the children should have small individual versions

#### Talk Partner Peer Assessment

(1)
Every week the children in my class are paired with a different talk partner. At the end of the week I give everyone this sheet to assess how effective they thought their talk partner was. It is excellent to encourage the children to work better in partners and think about the quality of their dialogue and interaction.

#### Visual Review for Children with SEN

(0)
A great sheet with child friendly questions. It's good to complete before SEN review meetings to help get the child's opinion of how things are going for them.

#### Visual Lesson Plan for SEN

(0)
This is a great sheet that can be used to break down lessons into easy to manage chunks. By writing down what is expected First, Next, Then, After and Last with short timings, children find lessons much easier to manage and can therefore achieve more. I have also included a reward section. This could be changed but is useful for children who find it particularly difficult to take part in a whole lesson.

(0)
Template for creating a 'Family Shield' all about yourself! Perfect for transition to create a display ready for your new class.

#### Class Dojo Reward Resources

(0)
Class Dojo is a free reward scheme based on points that children love! They can create their own monster character. I have created some certificates that my 'Top Monsters' receive at the end of each week. I have also created a wall chart to record daily whole class points totals and the weekly top monsters. There is also a label for a box of 'Dojo Tokens'. These can be handed out if you are not currently on the dojo site or app and the children can cash them in later. A fantastic behaviour management resource!

#### Number bonds to 10 and 20 game

(0)
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 3 PSHE Ground Rules

(0)
Use for the beginning of new topics and the start of each PSHE lesson. It runs through the ground rules regarding what is expected of behaviour and attitude in these sessions.

#### 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.

#### Good to be Green Class Target Display

(0)
Good to be Green is a fantastic behaviour management resource. I have created this display header in which you can write a whole class behaviour target. This is a good way of creating a whole class focus.

#### Making Musical Instruments

(0)
As part of a 'carnival' themed creative arts week we made our own musical instruments. We based them on sounds from Samba. The children needed to bring in recyclable materials in order to make them and it took a full day! However, the results were excellent!

(0)
Edit for your own class name, laminate and stick on the wall! When a child is ready to use a pen for writing, they can write their name on. A great tool to encourage handwriting skills through positive reinforcement.

#### Star of the Week Winner

(0)
If you use star of the week/day or something similar then show off your winner! I laminated this award and it gets attached to the back of the chair of the weekly/daily winner!

#### 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.

#### 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.
