I am constantly looking for new and exciting different ways of presenting and teaching different primary topics, especially maths topics.

These tests are set to change every 5 seconds, letting you test either individual children or a whole class at once. You might like to also look at my matching mini origami books which go with this series (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/mini-book-x2-to-x12-multiplication-times-table-tests-4-per-table-11198350) which are designed to make learning time tables more fun.
There are 4 tests per times table, so the children do not know what test you will give them. They are written in PowerPoint so you can easily edit them or change the speed of the tests.

FREE Year 4 Termly Maths Assessments - Perfect For the Year 4 Optional SATs Tests Revision
I love Wigan Maths. I have simply taken their ideas and made them ready for the modern classroom. I have upgraded the paper tests and made them more fun, more colourful Year 4 PowerPoint presentations. I have given the teachers two different options. 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.

I love Year 5 Wigan Maths Tests. While they are little old and don’t follow the current curriculum, they are still an excellent set of tests for revision purposes. I have taken the traditional tests and converted them all into PowerPoint presentations. On top of this, I have given teachers the option of either letting the students only see the answers at the end or after each question. I really like the second option as it means I can set a question, then give them a little time to think about it or discuss it in pairs and then show them the answer and discuss the different ways different children or different pairs found their answers. This is as much a learning experience as the test itself for many children. I really hope this pack is useful for lots of teachers.

As my Anti-bullying posters (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/10-free-anti-bullying-week-posters-for-every-classroom-download-and-share-today-11168376) proved so popular, I thought I would continue the series and create a set of motivational maths posters. You could add them to the classroom or all around the school. The would make an excellent resource for International Mathematics day, Pi day or any other numeracy day.
If you like these resources, please click the heart on this page to get informed of when I upload my next set of FREE poster resources.
Please also take the time to say something nice about these resources as you can imagine, they take a long time to make and nice comments motivate me to make more of them!

I have developed a set of weekly Mental Maths for Year 5 children for teachers who want to include Minecraft in the classroom.
I wanted to develop resources where a teacher can teach with Minecraft in a classroom with a single computer and a projector.
I need to mention that Minecraft was created by Mojang AB. http://www.DrFog.co.uk is not endorsed, associated or affiliated with Mojang AB in any way.

I have been a keen fan of this book for a long time. I was really excited to see as part of the Open Government scheme, I was able to take this book and make it into something I believe is much more user friendly.
When I used the original book with an interactive whiteboard, I was always annoyed at having to skim to the end of the book to show an answer. I wanted it on the next page.
In addition, I have now replaced all the pictured with much more stimulating colourful pictures. I have also taken the time to follow the advice of Dudley council and sorted the different problems into age groups and blocks.
You will notice there is some repetition of problems both between blocks and in different year groups. The students can try the same problem twice at different times, as this is excellent consolidation. It is also an excellent time to suggest students think about how they could change the problem.
How can this be used in the classroom?
This could be used as an assessment at the start or the end of a unit. It also could be used as an emergency set of lessons for any teacher while covering another teacher’s maths classes.
In addition, it is also an excellent set of resources to prepare for different exams. Look at how the students resolve a problem and identify the different ways different students attempt to answer the same problem.
In addition to answering the problems, this is also an excellent time to look into inverse operations. How do we know we have found all the answers? How do we know we have found the correct answer?
I have really enjoyed making these mental maths problems a lot more accessible. I have enjoyed teaching them in a wide range of different classes and I hope that you too will enjoy making maths fun.

Years ago I wrote series of numeracy lessons which converted all the DFES Numeracy SpringBoard 5 lessons into interactive PowerPoint lessons.
I think these will still be great for optional SATS revision also also for covering lessons, or for giving to supply teachers.

I am in the process of converting all my free TES PowerPoints into YouTube videos so teachers can teach my lesson and then share the YouTube video with their pupil’s parents to repeat at home. This new approach also makes for a much more fun dynamic lesson!

I like to ask the class a question, give the class a certain amount of time to solve the question and then show me the answer on their mini whiteboards. I have taken the KS2 SATs numeracy question papers for the 2015 test and combined the question and answer booklets into a single presentation. This is a great way of teaching as there is an instant feedback and explanation as to how to solve each problem. This helps to challenge and consolidate the classes learning.
This teaching resource could be used for whole class teaching and checking, or at home as a one to one resource with a tutor. These teaching resources make maths less stressful and so the students are more motivated to succeed!
I have created resources for levels 3-5 and also separate resources for Level 6 students. All the students should attempt all the papers to both consolidate and strengthen their basic learning and also extend their skills to a higher level.

I have written a lot more teaching resources and uploaded them to my own website at http://www.TimeToTeach.co.uk.

Since I first wrote this lesson, teachers have moved from using PowerPoints to Youtube and I have spent the summer upgrading all my resources to directly reflect this new style of teaching. Please leave me a comment if you like this new style of teaching.

Teachers no longer only use PowerPoint and so to relfect this, every one of lessons is now starting to come with a YouTube version of the PowerPoint. This also means you can teach a lesson and then directly share the link with your students’ parents, so they can repeat this work again at home.

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.
