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.

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).

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.

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.

10 paged Powerpoint to find the missing weight that makes 100g each time. Created to introduce missing digits and mathematical reasoning skills.
The connection should be made between the weights and a missing digit sentence e.g. 35 + __ = 100. It also enables you to compare 100 = __ + 35 and the validity of both.
I recommend that you use my Mr 100 to find the 100 number bonds, but then I would!

I created this interactive PowerPoint after using ‘Guess my number’ game in the class which is modelled on the game ‘Guess who’.
I use it to solve reasoning questions between 0 and 50 e.g. How many odd numbers are there between 20 and 40? The numbers can be pressed and eliminated when used on an interactive whiteboard. The class love to be chosen to interact with it.
I have included 30 question cards in a PDF format but also in a word format, so that you can alter the tables/sums etc.

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, breaking the tens barrier twice by the end.
There are 4 pages to each PowerPoint which I have been using in year 4, but are suitable for other ages.

Picture puzzles feature regularly in the reasoning tests (Wales). They are also an excellent way to introduce the part – part – whole aspect of Singapore Maths, missing digits e.e. 145 + __ = 193, can be used to develop logical thinking and bring enjoyment to halving and subtraction.
The numbers were chosen to be used in year 4 i.e. halving 3 digit numbers (e.g. 176) and borrowing when subtracting 3 digit – 2 digit (e.g. 263 – 87). The code breaker work sheet practices 3 digit + 3 digit.
I recommend using the halving diamond as the start of each task and the column method to subtract and borrow.
There are three pages of picture puzzles 2 x 2. I have also included the blanks so that you can use your own numbers for alternatives.

Although I prefer to use column methods to add money, this technique will introduce and consolidate the relationship between pounds and pence.

Mathematical reasoning has been brought into focus with the poor results of the PISA tests. These 5 investigations focus on re-ordering work with emphasis on a given set of options.
They are ultimately suited to year 3 but without prior investigation work, I’ve used these successfully in my year 4 class. I would advise using equipment/resources to spark interest in the task.
Each investigation has an extension which is a level above the problem for those children who are capable learners already. This assists classroom management, where high achievers can be disengaged when problems seem obvious to them.
There is also vocabulary specific to re-ordering work, to assist the teacher in promoting the language and therefore facilitate progress.

4 PowerPoints to use alongside the Big Maths clic sessions. I also use them as whiteboard sessions at the beginning of Maths lessons. The first one has number bonds under 10 and the last three cross e.g. 12 + 6, 55 + 9.
There are 10 pages to each PowerPoint which I have been using in year 4 but are more suitable for younger years.

The numbers were chosen to be used in year 4 i.e. dividing 2 digit numbers by 3 (that are greater than 12 x 3) halving 2/3 digit numbers (e.g. 176) and borrowing when subtracting 3 digit – 2 digit (e.g. 263 – 87). The code breaker work sheet practices adding three 2 digit numbers.
I recommend using the halving diamond as the start of each task and the column method to subtract and borrow.
There are three pages of picture puzzles 3 x 3. I have also included blanks so that you can use your own numbers.

Picture puzzles with scales feature regularly in the reasoning tests (Wales). They are also an excellent way to introduce the part – part – whole aspect of Singapore Maths, missing digits e.e. 145 + __ = 193, pre-algebra thinking and can be used to develop logical thinking with halving and subtraction.
The numbers were chosen to be used in year 4 i.e. halving 3 digit numbers (e.g. 176) and borrowing when subtracting 3 digit – 2 digit (e.g. 263 – 87). However, if your class are not used to these types of visual problems, they can be used in secondary school to introduce algebra.
I recommend using the halving diamond for the first sheet (as the start of most) and the column method to subtract and borrow.
There are three pages of scales picture puzzles.
