Codebreaker Addition of Decimals Worksheet (Differentiated)

Codebreaker Addition of Decimals Worksheet (Differentiated)

This is a codebreaking resource to reinforce the addition of decimal numbers. The children have to work out the calculations and match their answer to a coded letter at the top of the page. Once they have worked out all of the answers they will crack the code and receive the prize (it currently spells out - HOUSE POINT) but this could easily be adapted and changed. There are 2 differentiated codebreaker activity sheets (HA and LA).

Brain Gym PowerPoint - Morning Activities KS2

Brain Gym PowerPoint - Morning Activities KS2

I created this PowerPoint of 47 Slides of different morning 'Brain Gym' activities. I put one of these up on the IWB at the beginning of everyday for the children to complete. They know to start as soon as they come in and they love discussing them and sharing their ideas. The brain gym PowerPoint is easily adapted and I often add to it each morning too,

Long Multiplication 'Steps to Success' KS2

Long Multiplication 'Steps to Success' KS2

Upon introducing Long Multiplication to my Y5 class, I found that providing them with a 'step to success' prompt really benefitted their understanding of the process. I began by teaching 2-digit x 1-digit then onto 3-digit x 1 digit and progressed onto 2-digit x 2-digit and finally 3-digit x 2-digits. I have also attached a PowerPoint presentation which I have adapted offline, which I used to aid my teaching.

Invaders and Settlers - The Picts, Scots, Anglo-Saxons - The Roman Withdrawal From Britain

Invaders and Settlers - The Picts, Scots, Anglo-Saxons - The Roman Withdrawal From Britain

KS2 History - The Fall of the Roman Empire. Why did it happen? Children learn about the invasions of the Scots, Picts and Anglo-Saxons on a PowerPoint, which has additional tasks to complete. Children then have to create a timeline of events, which has been differentiated three ways (LA, MA, HA). LA - children to simply cut out, order the events based on dates and then stick them down. MA - Children have been provided with all of the images and information, however they have been mixed up - these children must cut out all of the images and information separately and match them together. HA - These children have been given all of the images and dates, however they need to come up with their own captions to explain each event.

Measurement, Scales, Missing Intervals, Converting Measures - KS2

Measurement, Scales, Missing Intervals, Converting Measures - KS2

Learning Objectives: To be able to choose appropriate units to measure length and distance. To be able to read metre sticks, tape measures and rulers marked in cm and mm accurately. To be able to make sensible estimates of length in everyday contexts. To be able to know how many millimetres there are in a centimetre or metre, and how many metres there are in a kilometre. To be able to interpret a reading between two unnumbered divisions on a scale. This lesson was an observation lesson and is based on a round robin of 4 activities (which could be spilt up into 4 lessons) used within a KS2 maths lesson. The activity was differentiated amongst 4 groups. LA-red, MA-blue, HMA-orange, HA-green. Children had to work out the missing intervals and complete each activity. A very detailed lesson plan (from my observation) has been attached and I have also attached the lesson expectations for each group to display on their tables to ensure they have met the learning objectives by the end of the lesson. Additionally, there is a game of Bingo whereby the children have to convert measurements. Each activity was set up on a different table and the children were given 10 minutes at each station.

Space Research Lesson - KS2 Scientific Research

Space Research Lesson - KS2 Scientific Research

I have attached a lesson plan, research questions and individual planet research. The children were put into mixed ability groups of 3/4 (depending on the amount of questions provided for each planet). Each group will be given 1 planet to research and each person in the group will be given a set of research questions to find the answers to (these question cards have been differentiated). The groups must then find the answers to their questions using the printed information attached, iPads, internet and books. I got the children to present their information on strips of coloured paper (similar to the colour of their planet), these strips of information were then stuck onto cut out planets (2 sides) the two sides were then stuck together with wire suporting them inside and we hung them on our classroom ceiling (in the correct order M,V,E,M,J,S,U,N - we also created a sun to hung before Mercury and decorated the planets with strips of metallic paper, glitter, tissue etc). They look fab!

The History of The World Cup - Sport and Leisure - The History of Football

The History of The World Cup - Sport and Leisure - The History of Football

The class was spilt up into teams of 5/6, each of them was given a one of the research 'question cards' (which had been laminated). Each team then had to find the answers to all of their own questions using the information sheets, iPads and books from the library. The children presented their information on a large poster. Once all of the information was collected, the children used this to create their own 'World Cup Board Games', which they had to make a board, rules, game cards, etc for to allow other members of the class to play. The winning team was awarded a prize.
