Ask the children to choose 4 numbers from slide 3 and write them on their mini whiteboards. The children must work out the column subtraction either on whiteboards or in their maths books. First child to call bingo wins! Ask the children to choose a new set of numbers (or carry on playing)
I created this code breaking maths lesson for an Ofsted observation. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and had so much fun (whilst still learning). The children are told that they have been selected by the local police to solve a crime. Unfortunately, all of the money from the school office has been stolen and an artist impression of the suspects has been provided. The children must crack the secret police codes to elimate the innocent suspects (cross them off) and reveal the final two suspects. Once this has been completed the last clue is placed on the IWB. Children get a reward for helping the police! I have differentiated the 4 ways questions (HIPPO - the highest, MOUSE - the second highest, HA - third highest, LA - lowest) but they could be adapted to any year group! I have also included the lesson plan and PowerPoint to help clarify the task. Enjoy! 1st answer = MAN 2nd answer = HAT 3rd answer = BEARD 4th answer = GLASSES 5th answer = MOUSTACHE 6th answer = GINER 2 SUSPECTS LEFT = Kenny and Eric THIEF IS = KENNY *PLEASE NOTE I HAVE ADDED 2 ADDITIONAL DIFFERENTIATED SHEETS AND A POWERPOINT*
LA worksheet has the coins provided and the children are required to circle the amounts requested. HA worksheet has the coins, which the children may use at the top. They must find three different ways of making each amount (using only the coins provided at the top).
Great task for KS1 SATS prep. I created this resource after reading and allowing the children to watch (BBC clip) 'Katie Morag delivers the Mail&'. I also provided the LA children with copies of the book to guide them.
Differentiated worksheets for an introduction to a written method of division with KS2.
This was used within an Year 5 session to introduce 'Gases around us&'.
This is a story map template used for KS1 to help plan their fantasy stories. Useful tool in getting children to think about the different stages of their story.
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).
Problem-solving activity which includes multi-step problems differentiated 2 ways. Children will need a copy of the 'Holiday on the Island of Coll' problem-solving sheet to enable them to answer the questions.
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,
I created this resource for my Year 2 class who were focusing on Katie Morag and the topic 'Living on an Island&'. I used a map of the Isle of Struay and created questions based on the coordinates.
This is a medium term art plan based upon The Tudors. Suitable for upper KS2.
Children to play this game in pairs. Focuses on multiplying by 10 and 100.
The children must choose three different items off the Christmas list and work out the total cost. They must find as many combinations as possible and check their answers using the inverse operation. It has been adapted for HA, MA and LA but could be changed further if necessary.
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.
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.
