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.

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.

This lesson can then be repeated at home as additional homework.
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.

Here is a great set of Year 3 Maths teaching resources. I have recently upgraded them to include links to the YouTube Version of each lesson. These could be used to help revise for the KS1 or KS2 SATs tests, as a resource for a supply teacher or simply as something to do at home.

Originally, I was asked to send them to some friends, and so I thought I would share them with all the world via TES. Since then they have been viewed over 40,000 times! This is my most downloaded set of presentations I have ever made on TES.

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.

These have now been upgraded to include an interactive, dynamic YouTube movie in each PowerPoint. This is because I know teachers are moving away from PowerPoint to YouTube and I thought it would be fun to give them the option of being able to use and share this work directly on YouTube.
Here is a list of the different lessons in this FREE Year 1 Maths Lessons Pack
Lesson 1: Addition and Subtraction
Lesson 2: Splitting Numbers
Lesson 3: Using Number Lines To ‘Count On’

I uploaded them due to popular demand.

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.

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 always used the Wigan Maths Tests to prepare the students for their final exams. However, I wanted to improve it, so that I could ask a question and discuss the answer directly on the whiteboard and so I rewrote the tests as PowerPoint presentations. The students could do it together in the classroom or take them home as additional revision.
