FREE Year 5 PowerPoint Mental Maths Tests (3 weeks)
I love the Wigan Mental Maths tests but I am trying to reduce the amount of paper I have in the classroom and so I have started to convert the Year 5 tests into PowerPoints. I use them weekly, and use the same one twice then I put them online for the parents to use at home.

I have redeveloped and corrected all my Year 3 Maths Assessment PowerPoints this summer and added a YouTube video to each of them to make them more fun and more useful in the classroom. Try them today!
I love Wigan Maths. I have used them constantly in my own classroom since 2000. While these assessments don’t match the current curriculum, they are still an excellent tool for reviewing and revising maths. I took the original tests and I have made it so your students can do all the test in one go, or you can give them a single question, give them a little time to resolve the problem and then discuss what is the answer and why. This is the best use of these Wigan maths tests.

FREE Year 4 Termly Maths Assessments YouTube PowerPoint Presentations
I am now converting all my PowerPoint presentations into YouTube videos PowerPoint Combos. This means teachers can teach the lesson using either the PowerPoint or Youtube version of the lesson and then share the YouTube lesson with their students’ parents. This lesson can then be repeated at home as additional homework.

The students can do a single question in an alloted amount of time and then discuss their answers as a class - discussing their different strategies and how they checked their answers or a more standard test - and checking.

FREE Year 3 Maths Lesson - Adding and Subtracting Money (Autumn Term). Perfect for revision, homework, an extension lesson or just for fun.

When I am revising maths, I like to ask a question and then the students answer it on their mini whiteboards. We then check the answer on the following slide. I have combined the test papers with the marking scheme, making teaching and learning a lot more fun.
There is differentiated revision material. There are tests for levels 3 - 5, and tests for level 6, and some which are for all the students. All the students should try all the tests, to both consolidate and extend their learning to make sure they have the maximum chance of reaching their true potential.
I have presented them in the different PowerPoint formats for the older and more modern computers.
Did you know pairing a high achieving and less high achieving child together actually helps both? As the more advanced student explains how to solve a problem, they too improve their knowledge of mathematical vocabulary.

Are you looking for Mental Maths Revision Quizzes for Year 6? I have written 24 self marking sets of Mental Maths quizzes for students.
The quizzes are similar to those students use for their Year 6 SATS exams.
When a student has completed a test, they can instantly see what they got correct, and what they need to work on.
The front page of this Excel file is especially interesting for teachers as it provides a summary of the scores the students have achieved as both a table and a bar chart.
The teacher simply downloads the Excel file and renames in the student's name. The student could complete these tests at home or in the classroom.
