Here is a great set of Year 3 Maths teaching resources. 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. Years ago I wrote a wide range of different Year 3 Maths PowerPoint lessons which followed the Governmental guidelines of the time. Free Year 3 Lessons: The topics covered are... Lesson 1: Y3 1 Autumn Place Values Lesson 2: Y3 2 Autumn Ordering Lesson 3: Y3 3 Autumn Add Subtract Multiples Lesson 4: Y3 4 Autumn Mental Calculations Lesson 5: Y3 5 Autumn Mental Models Lesson 6: Y3 6 Autumn Money Lesson 7: Y3 7 Autumn Adding several numbers Lesson 8: Y3 8 Autumn Add subtract 11 or 9 Lesson 9: Y3 9 Autumn Subtraction Bonds Lesson 10: Y3 10 Autumn Addition on empty line Lesson 11: Y3 11 Autumn Solving Word Problems 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.

This book brings together some of the very best worksheets for teachers and students of English. Whether you are a teacher or a student we hope that you will find something here to inspire you and make English language learning fun and relevant. The worksheets can be photocopied freely and are primarily intended for use with Entry Level students, although they will also provide useful practise for learners at all levels. These worksheets have been written by an experienced English language teacher and used in English classes with learners from a wide variety of countries. At the back of the book is a short collection of fun classroom games that have been similarly tried and tested. Some may be familiar while others are original. In publishing descriptions of these games we are not in any way claiming credit for inventing them or owning them - our aim has been to collect together games that work and get a great response from students.

Animal Skeleton Bones - PowerPoint + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For These Cards

(0)
Are you teaching your class about animal skeleton bones? I have collected together a wide range of different photos of skeletons. It is a nice way to show them the differences and similarities between different animals. For example, you can show them the spine and discuss what different animals have done with their arms and legs. This pack contains a 31 Teaching Activity Teacher Guide using these photo flash cards. These activities are quick and fun to do and will improve both your students' memory and vocabulary skills. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different bones being shown in each of the photos. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Animal Skeleton Bones. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different types of Animal Skeleton Bones. The students can then compare and contrast the bones to those found in their own bodies. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

70 worksheets for English lessons with answers Intermediate Level The second ESL resource book

(1)
Welcome to the second English ESL book. Like the first one, it’s packed full of worksheets that can be photocopied freely for use in the classroom, as well as being an ideal tool for students to work through at home. We’ve included resources that test grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, spelling and speaking & listening skills. A huge variety of material that we hope will be fun to use and really helpful, whether you are at school or at home. A big thank you must go to all the students who have tried and tested these resources in the classroom prior to us producing the book! While the first book (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/60-entry-level-grammar-worksheets-for-english-lessons-and-esl-with-answers-11156436) was aimed primarily at Entry Level students, this one is aimed at higher level students, either Intermediate Level or Level 1 (ESOL Core Curriculum), depending on how you choose to label them. There are also a few worksheets for practising more basic skills, such as the two Writing Skills worksheets. However, most of the material reflects the higher level, and will provide a wealth of stimulating lessons for students who are starting to become more independent in their learning. With this in mind we have included a brand new section - Test Your Research Skills. Here you will find quizzes on a range of topics that require students to go and do some research, using a library facility, encyclopaedia (whether in CD Rom or old fashioned book form!), or even the internet...

This is my Victorian bundle. It is an interesting collection of different resources. In some ways, Victorians were similar to us, in other ways, they held very different opinions to modern Britons. These presentations are a great way to get the students talking in the classroom. They can discuss the dresses and toys and guess what the different household objects were used for.

A to Z Earth and Space Alphabet - PowerPoint and Display Teaching Resource

(0)
I find teaching with an alphabet theme works well for all sorts of topics. I could not find one which helped me to teach about space, so I made my own. If you print it out, it will help with both space, spellings and the alphabet all at once. The images are stunning and it will brighten up any classroom! You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different space objects being shown in each of the photos. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about the A to Z Earth and Space Alphabet. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different space features. The students can then discuss what they think each one is. Could students create their own versions of the A to Z Earth and Space Alphabet? The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

Year 6 Maths SATS 2014 Past Papers - Levels 3 - 5 and Level 6 - Questions And Answers

(0)
I have found a way of making Maths revision a lot more fun. I have combined the official question papers and the official marking schemes into a single document. This means you can ask a question, the students show their answers on mini whiteboards and then as a class, you look at the official answers and look at what the students would have scored. As this is a whole class teaching activity, students can work in pairs or small teams and discuss their ideas and strategies together. This really reduces the level of stress as children are able to build on each others skills. This teaching resource could be used in the classroom or at home. This teaching resource is a lot of fun and will make a difference to your students attitudes to maths. Keep Maths Fun! Tell me what you think of this teaching resource in the comments box below!
