The resources that I am sharing I have used successfully as a Primary Tutor to develop learning, understanding and confidence with individual students. They can also be used for group work. To keep my teaching skills sharp and to continue to develop my understanding of the curriculum, I also work as a Supply Teacher. Before becoming a Tutor I was a Senior Leader in a large Primary school holding the position of Assess Co-ordinator; I have also been a Year Leader and a SENCO.

STRAIGHT LINES TO CURVED LINES

STRAIGHT LINES TO CURVED LINES

(2)
I have memories of completing this activity at school - we would use a template or draw our own axis to draw straight lines to matching the numbers. (In the example, I used 1 to 1 but the blank template can be adapted to use any times table eg; 1 to 4, 2 to 8). The third activity is based around a circle template and initially the students draw a line to every fifth number before being encouraged to experiment with other numbers to make a variety of impressive shapes. As a child we used to do this activity using card and embroidery thread and create pictures using 'curved stitching'. The activity is also useful for developing fine motor skills.
