What Katie Taught

Average Rating4.16
(based on 23 reviews)

Mostly secondary maths resources here but you will find the odd English number sashaying in with jazz hands, occasionally followed by a primary resource cartwheeling behind. The resources are a mix of those I've used for tutoring (could be any age, any subject), those I've used in my training and those I've used in the classroom. As well as a few ideas that I needed to get out at 3am even though I have no use for them right away.

Place Value: Multiply & Divide Decimals - Scaffolded Worksheet
kfrazer92kfrazer92

Place Value: Multiply & Divide Decimals - Scaffolded Worksheet

(0)
Scaffolded worksheet that I used with a mid to low ability Year 7 group to build on place value to multiply and divide decimals, but absolutely perfect for KS3 & 4 as this often poses difficulty with foundation GCSE students. The worksheet features a worked example alongside an incomplete example. This makes it suitable to use for a “follow along” example in class; for a piece of catch up work, homework or revision; or even for use as part of a cover lesson.
Times Tables Game

Times Tables Game

(0)
In all my years of tutoring and teaching, this is still the most requested game that I have made! Contains pdf and pub version (so you can edit as needed). Times tables from 2x to 15x and square numbers to 12 making it perfect from KS1 right through to KS4. Ideal for preparing for the Year 4 times tables check. Perfect pair work - just add a pair of dice! Also makes a great home learning task. Update April 2020: I’ve added in a PowerPoint version and a Google Slides version for use in virtual classrooms or even for suggesting your pupils use to play with each other while they’re at home to keep up their skills.

A triangle is

(1)
I used this with a bottom set year 8 class (very low ability, high level of SEND) to find out what they already knew about triangles. They went around the classroom talking to each other to fill in about the four triangles pictured. Then after feeding back and correcting misconceptions we filled in a new sheet to stick in their exercise books. Would work well for a KS2 shape revision lesson before SATs also.

Basic angle facts recall starter

These are: angles on a straight line sum to 180 degrees angles around a point sum to 360 degrees vertically opposite angles are equal It features incomplete sentences for an element of literacy at the start of the lesson as well as 3 questions per fact, each of which is accompanied by an example that simply shows the size of the angles to help jog their memory!
Literary Devices Matching Activity
kfrazer92kfrazer92

Literary Devices Matching Activity

(0)
This resource contains 27 literary devices and their definitions as well as three column headings: device, definition, example. The example column is to be provided by the learners and can be done in relation to the texts that you are studying. Ensure that the cards are cut out in advance (or as a minimum cut the sheets into strips and get pupils to cut down further). This is simply because the definitions correspond to the device in the same location on each sheet. Because the definitions and devices can be matched easily from the uncut sheet, it makes this a brilliant task to be used during a cover lesson if a non-specialist is delivering the work. The front sheet provides visual instructions to support learners during the task.
Casio fx-85GTX: Do you know your calculator?

Casio fx-85GTX: Do you know your calculator?

(0)
Great for getting pupils truly familiar with their calculator - especially year 7 who are probably using a scientific calculator for the first time. This worksheet is designed as an annotating activity for the Casio fx-85GTX which is recommended by exam boards. This is also great for coming up to GCSE exams as one thing that examiners seem to repeat is that candidates often don’t seem to know how to use their calculator to the best effect!
Romeo and Juliet or Not Romeo and Juliet
kfrazer92kfrazer92

Romeo and Juliet or Not Romeo and Juliet

(0)
Sort the characters and themes into whether they are relevant to Romeo and Juliet or not, but watch out for a few red herrings in there! This activity is ideal for low ability learners and SEND to check learning in Romeo and Juliet. It is a self contained activity, including instructions making it ideal for a cover lesson.
One and Two Step Equations Grid
kfrazer92kfrazer92

One and Two Step Equations Grid

(0)
This grid 8x5 grid contains 40 different one and two step equations. The layout is designed such to be used in different ways. The most simple use is for repetitive practice early on as pupils can work through a progression of questions. Another use is a game of 4 in a row. Going head to head with peer, who can be the first to get 4 in a row? Or, projected onto a whiteboard (interactive or otherwise), it can be used as a whole class team game of Blockbusters (either two class teams or beat the teacher!). Who can create a path from left to right or top to bottom first? This works well because they get progressively more challenging going right to left and top to bottom meaning they can’t just choose the “easy” ones!

(0)

Lesson PPT on percentage increase and decrease. It’s a bare bones PPT as it is one that I have used with multiple classes and I always want to tweak it for each class so it’s ready for your extra touch.

Angles in Parallel Lines Afl PowerPoint

(0)
A 9 slide PowerPoint in which pupils have to state which angle relationship is being represented: alternate, corresponding or co-interior. This was used with a low ability year 8 group to assess whether they could spot the shapes of the relationships (F, Z and C angles) whilst still reinforcing the correct names (as is now required at all levels at GCSE).

Wordsearch: Triangles and Quadrilaterals

(0)
A wordsearch for the names of special quadrilaterals and triangles. Includes two versions for differentiation. One has the names of the shapes included and the other simply instructs to find the names of the quadrilaterals and triangles they have been learning about that week (this version has a few red herrings thrown in). Even though the two wordsearches look different, the words to be found are in the same place in each - making it easy to use both versions of the sheet in the same class.
