20 Lessons: Maths in Context

(0)
Why I made this resource Every maths lesson you teach, you give a clear learning outcome (or TBAT or WALT or Success Criteria - whatever it’s called in each school.) Your class follow your carefully planned steps, and succeed. However, in my experience, children then struggle when faced with: -multi-step problems -multi-operation problems -questions without a clear method to use -changes in maths skill required (E.g. suddenly needing to write an answer as a fraction) How to Use These lessons are designed to have limiting teaching beforehand, if at all. Instead, children tackle the real-life situation using a broad range of skills (money, decimals, written methods, mental strategies, converting between fractions and % etc) and get used to: -thinking independently -being less reliant on adults (“learned helplessness”) -using a blend of skills at once What’s included? -20 real-life contexts (whole lessons) which each include: >printable data pages (price lists, menus, information pages, league tables, timetables, fact files, recipes) >15 differentiated questions (Band A = easiest, Band E = hardest. Harder Qs can be trimmed off the page, depending on your maths groups) >Answer sheet
KS2 Reading and Comprehension: Literary Classics (15 Complete Lessons)
jessgoldsmith5jessgoldsmith5

KS2 Reading and Comprehension: Literary Classics (15 Complete Lessons)

(0)
I created these tasks mainly to hit the NC statement, “increasing their familiarity with a wide range of books, including…modern fiction, fiction from our literary heritage…” after realising that many of my pupils had never even heard of (let alone read) many of the classic stories from our heritage. These tasks provide samples and accompanying tasks from 15 classics (both older and modern.) Please note: the 75 files were too large for one listing on TES, so I’ve compressed them into a zip file. I’ve also uploaded one lesson separately (Hound of the Baskervilles) so you can see the resource. What’s Included: *15 complete reading comprehension lessons, made up of: -The extract in Microsoft Word format -The extract in Notebook format (for Whiteboard projection) -Questions with response spaces (plus points per question, like SATs papers) -Just Questions (for higher ability pupils or just to save on photocopying!) -Suggested answers (my TA does these tasks with small groups, so the answer sheet comes in handy) Useful for: -Whole-class comprehension lessons -Small group work (E.g. Round Robin Reading Groups) -Boosting / extra support for poor readers Titles: -Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll) -Great Expectations (Charles Dickens) -Northern Lights (Phillip Pullman) -Stardust (Neil Gaiman) -Stig of the Dump (Clive King) -The Butterfly Lion (Michael Morpurgo) -The Hound of the Baskervilles (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) -The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (C.S.Lewis) -The Secret Garden (Frances Hodgeson-Burnett) -The Star of Kazan (Eva Ibbotson) -The White Giraffe (Lauren St John) -The Wind in the Willows (Kenneth Graham) -The Wizard of Oz (Frank Baum) -Treasure Island (Robert Louis Stevenson) -Wonder (R.J.Palacio)

Maths Puzzles: Tarsia

Maths Puzzles: Tarsia

(0)
10 Tarsia Puzzles covering a range of Upper KS2 and lower KS3 subject areas. (As a current upper KS2 teacher myself, I use Tarsia regularly as my pupils really enjoy these puzzles - great for Deepening / Mastery) Includes: -Dividing Fractions (Standard) -Dividing Fractions (Tricky) -Equivalent Fractions -Finding Fractions of Numbers (Standard) -Finding Fractions of Numbers (Tricky) -Fraction Conversions -Multiplying Fractions (Standard) -Multiplying Fractions (Tricky) -Roman Numerals (Standard) -Roman Numerals (Tricky) -Multiply and divide by 10 100 1000 (Standard) -Multiply and divide by 10 100 1000 (Tricky) What is a Tarsia? Tarsias are puzzles (a bit like dominoes or triominoes) where each piece contains a mix of questions and answers. Questions and answers have to be matched up, creating a finished puzzle. What file-types are included? TES doesn’t support Tarsia files, so these can’t be uploaded directly. Instead, you’ll be accessing PNG files (images) of the original puzzles. These are fully printable and playable. What software is required if I want to make my own Tarsia? Tarsias are created in a piece of free software by Hermitech Labs (no affiliation.) I’ve been making Tarsia for years - it’s a genuinely fantastic free resource, which you should consider downloading for yourself. It allows you to choose a blank puzzle-type, then input your own questions and answers. It then turns those into a puzzle for you. (To find the page with the download on, Google ‘Hermitch Labs Tarsia’)
