Resources included for year 3 / 4 Real Reads version of Oliver Twist. Activities include: prediction, vocabulary generation, descriptive writing, question enquiry, recount activity, wanted poster. There is also detailed planning for the first week of activities
I have created these to use in my class next year and am so pleased with how they’ve turned out. I have only created them to 10x. I have included a Powerpoint presentation to learn the 2x times table and black and white copies that you can use on worksheets. I hope you enjoy too.
Pimp up your class clock with this display that turns it into a teaching resource. You have a choice of 24 hour clock or minutes.
A huge choice of 40 certificates ready to print or easily edited. One document is locked as a PDF, ready to print. The other is editable in PowerPoint so that you can change or personalise the achievement. The background digital papers and borders are available to buy separately to pimp your worksheets / presentations at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/digital-papers-and-frames-11690165.
Numbers posters ready to print and laminate. Each containing the word, coin representation (least number of coins), the number itself, numicon representation and hands/fingers representation.
I’ve created these 6 worksheets in response to the new digital competence framework and for the fact that I couldn’t find many resources myself. Internet safety is such a broad spectrum, I have focused on the following in these. E-mail safety and phishing - true or false, Private and personal information - table distribution Genuine and scam websites - colouring, Computer cookies – missing words, Identity theft – what is it? How to protect yourselves and what to do when you’re a victim, The perils of free software and downloads - comprehension. They have been created to use in a year 4 class but are suitable for any KS2 or KS3 year group.
Tables 2-10 colouring sheets with answers, and tables cards for LA. Colouring the remainders different colours produces a picture that the children are keen to discover. They are learning whilst having fun and not realising.
I’ve used these very successfully with year 5 to introduce a practical application to probability. I recommend that you use coins, dice, dominos and playing cards during the lessons but they can be used just as easily without. You may also have a large dice, dominos or playing cards that you can use to introduce the 4 lessons, or to use with lower abilities. The tasks in order of complexity are; • Coin toss investigation, • Dice roll investigation, • Dominos investigation and • Playing cards investigation.
Finding missing numbers on scales can be a real challenge for some. Finding the difference before calculating half and adding this to the initial number is as confusing to some as it sounds! The easier introduction is developing these skills one step at a time, by starting with 0. These two step worksheets, with simple PowerPoint introduction, will ensure more of the class will achieve.
8 differentiated money worksheets created for year 4. This includes; • Adding money by counting repeating coins, • Adding money ordered largest to smallest, • Adding money in random orders, • Adding decimals (column method), • Reasoning skills from a menu (following pictures), • Adding two 2 digit numbers, • Finding change from £1, £2, £5 and/or £10, • Money word problems (not differentiated but gets harder). There is a differentiated ‘First to spend £10’ game and a laminate to use with lower abilities (to use a whiteboard pen).
These race car numbers can be used in a variety of ways. They can be used as a wall display (or other display), they can be an arranging task, they can be used as an activity for ‘driving’ a toy car around the shape correctly or can be traced. The boys particularly liked these when introducing numbers to the class. The clip art images can be inserted into any worksheet of your own creation too. I have created these because the ones I’ve found have the incorrect formation for 4, 5 and 9. I have used these digits (without the lines) for these resources too; https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/number-fans-and-also-numicon-dice-2d-shapes-3d-shapes-coins-and-fractions-11961251 https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/numbers-posters-1-20-display-11961553
5 connect 4 games to print and laminate. Sums developed to promote and develop addition, braking the tens barrier. The sums begin with 1 digit + 1 digit and progress up to 3 digit + 2 digit numbers.
4 PowerPoints to use alongside the Big Maths clic sessions. I also use them as whiteboard sessions at the beginning of Maths lessons. They get progressively harder from the first to last, ending up introducing decimals. There are 5 pages to each PowerPoint which are suitable for year 1/2 upwards.
This is a great way to introduce and learn numicon values by playing 1-6 bingo or 5 - 10 bingo. You can differentiate by using both. The picture cards are for one to one matching, actual numicon sizes. A perfect activity to compliment shape and colour recognition. Numicon bingo is on the White Rose maths hub scheme for
9 statements regarding digital competence / citizenship health and wellbeing.
I’ve created these 4 worksheets and a poster in response to the new digital competence framework and for the fact that I couldn’t find many resources myself. Internet safety is such a broad spectrum, I have focused on the following in these. Sharing online – scenarios to discuss, Traffic light poster for sharing, Sharing their own ideas for the traffic light system, Strong and weak passwords – tick sheet, Adult supervision – make their own rules. They have been created to use in a year 5 class but are suitable for any KS2 or KS3 year group.
Fun game / presentation to introduce the language of probability. It uses the terms; Impossible, Very unlikely, Unlikely, Even chance, Likely, Very likely and Certain. There is a brief introduction and these slides can be removed if you wish, including rules of the game. The board has 12 interactive questions where pupils click on their choice before the question is revealed. There are 7 possible answers to each question. Clicking the wrong answer will make the answer shake to indicate that it is wrong. When a correct answer is chosen, it will take you back to the question board. You can keep a record of the scores when the presentation is active by typing them in yourself on the question screen. It is also possible to name the teams in the same way.
Mastery Weekly interactive Mathematics Powerpoints – Reception, counting, number recognition, double
I created these because I had no resources and they turned out to be amazing! They proved so successful with the children and the two other Reception teachers; I continued to produce them for the rest of the year. Worksheets, matching games etc. are included. The next 5 PowerPoints are for sale here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/5-weeks-mastery-interactive-mathematics-powerpoints-and-resources-reception-weeks-2-6-11965274 I use each presentation at least 3 if not 4 times a week prior to Maths session. The children are chosen to come to the whiteboard for most of the PowerPoint pages e.g. to pop the bubbles whilst counting down from 10, which they love (better listening skills on the carpet). The PowerPoints start from scratch. Unfortunately, the difference between the highest achiever and lowest at Reception can be enormous and my philosophy is ‘no one left behind’. They change pace quickly and certain aspects such as the ‘doubling bunny’ rely on repetition and learning ‘the action’ (children physically perform it) so that they can say the answers before tackling the maths later on in the year. Each lesson begins with: Shape discussion (click the shape to make it dance), Counting upwards (from the number of the week), Counting from 10 to zero (clicking on the images so that they disappear one by one). Different concepts are then added each time. I have created these PowerPoints to satisfy: • Maths mastery, • Little Big Maths, • The Welsh foundation phase curriculum (it also satisfies the English eyfs curriculum), • Individual profiles (Reception), • It introduces the part part whole aspect of Singapore Maths and also the bar method, • It also utilises ideas from the White Rose Maths. Week one is free so that you can see how this works in your class. The rest are in half termly packs. Week 1 PowerPoint is arranged as follows: Page 1 : Cover page – shapes to discuss (triangle, square, rectangle and circle) Page 2 : Counting to 10 (1 to 10) Page 3 : Counting down from 10 to 0 (balloon pop) Page 4 : Reading numbers 0 to 5 Page 5 : Writing numbers in the air (1 to 5) Page 6 : Counting coins 1 to 5 Page 7 : Doubling bunny 1 + 1, 2 + 2 Page 8 : Adding basics (how to make 2) Page 9 : Comparing numbers to 4 objects
