Differentiated worksheets for an introduction to a written method of division with KS2.
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).
This was used within an Year 5 session to introduce 'Gases around us&'.
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.
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.
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)
Worksheet on Addition and Subtraction of Decimals, designed for Year 6 to practice inverse operations. The children really enjoyed this activity.
This is a medium term art plan based upon The Tudors. Suitable for upper KS2.
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.
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,
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.
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.
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).
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.
This is a collection of work based on Multiples, Factors and Squared Numbers. There is a detailed PowerPoint, which I used over 2 weeks and a range of worksheets and differentiated activities to complete.
