Cool Connectives Differentiated Worksheets

Cool Connectives Differentiated Worksheets

These worksheets help to encourage the use of connectives. The first and second allow the child to choose a connective to add to given sentences. The third, for more confident writers, gives them the start of a sentence and asks them to continue using a choice of connective. I have uploaded Publisher 2010 documents (without my school's logo) or if it's easier for you there are links to the PDF versions on my school website.

Practise KS1 SATs Questions Maths Arithmetic and Reasoning (similar to the 2016 sample papers)

Practise KS1 SATs Questions Maths Arithmetic and Reasoning (similar to the 2016 sample papers)

Maths Arithmetic and Reasoning questions designed to look the same as those in the official 2016 sample paper. 6 sets of papers. Each set includes two papers containing similar questions. The look, difficulty and style of the questions are as close to the sample paper as I could manage. Personally I have been giving these to my Year 2 children as SATs preparation and revision. I give them paper 1 which they complete in silence. They then come to the carpet and I go through the ways they could have answered the questions with them. They then go straight back to their tables and do the second paper which has exactly the same types of questions with different numbers and maybe different operations. That way they can put into practise what they have just learnt There is a video for each set on YouTube aimed at children, that walks through these questions and how to answer them. The video can be found by a QR code on the sheets and the URL is on the last page (so it does not appear on the question sheets you may wish to use in class). We have found that putting the file and link to the video on our school website (on the day they do that set in school) has been appreciated by our parents. Please note: Set one is available free of charge as a separate resource so you can decide if they are useful. (If you downloaded this resource before 18th May 2016 you may not have got the whole set so make sure you download the extra pages I have added!)

Punctuation game

Punctuation game

In this game the child has to answer 15 questions correctly in order to get to fling their teacher. Each question asks them to find the sentence with a mistake. The quiz looks at question marks, speech marks, full stops and capital letters (both at the start of a sentence and for names). Character names from the Oxford Reading Tree are used for familiarity. I have included a link to the Flash file for you to download, or if it's easier for you a link to the game on our school website. The game has proved to be quite addictive to some of our HAs in Year 1 and to most of year 2.

KS1 Addition & Subtraction Evidence Gathering Lesson - Working Towards, Expected and Greater Depth

KS1 Addition & Subtraction Evidence Gathering Lesson - Working Towards, Expected and Greater Depth

This lesson (stand-alone or could be returned to once or twice) is ideal for gathering evidence to support your teacher assessment of addition and subtraction related statements on the 2016 KS1 Interim Assessment Framework for Maths. Including: A brief 'skeleton' lesson plan, Learning Objective and Success Criteria Assessment slips and 102 colour coded questions. 32 Green questions for the 'Working Towards' statement - "Pupils can add and subtract a two-digit number and ones and a two-digit number and tens where no regrouping is required." 32 Orange questions for the 'Expected Standard' statement - "Pupils can add 2 two-digit numbers within 100 and can demonstrate their method." 32 Red questions for the 'Expected Standard' statement - "Pupils can subtract mentally a two-digit number from another two-digit number when there is no regrouping required." and 6 Black questions for the 'Greater Depth' statement - "Pupils can reason about addition." With my class I put a selection of question slips on the table appropriate for those particular children. They stick the Learning Objective slip at the top of the page then choose a question, stick in in their book and write their workings and answer next to it. There are enough questions to ensure you never hear a child saying "I'm finished" Personally I held the black questions back, only giving them to those children that had shown me enough evidence of the 'Expected Standard' statements.

KS1 Year 2 Maths Reasoning Worded Problems - Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction

KS1 Year 2 Maths Reasoning Worded Problems - Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction

A group of six sets of differentiated worded maths problems to test reasoning skills that fit with the new national curriculum. The problems are colour coded according to difficulty and each set has been provided in PDF format as well as Word format to allow for easy editing should you wish to amend them to fit your topic. These questions are loosely related to the topic os 'Explorers'. Personally when I used these in related lessons the children were provided with a choice on their table so they could challenge themselves according to the colour coding. I used the mixed sets to start testing their ability to choose the correct operation. Includes: Addition (green - not crossing tens; orange - crossing tens; and red - two step) Subtraction (green - not crossing tens; orange - crossing tens; and red - two step) Multiplication (green - 2s and 10s; orange - 5s and 3s; and red - two step) Division (green - 2s and 10s; orange - 5s and 3s; and red - two step or questions that may involve a remainder) Two sets of mixed multiplication and division problems.

Read and write the time in words, analogue and digital. "Endless" differentiated activity

Read and write the time in words, analogue and digital. "Endless" differentiated activity

A great activity that can keep your class busy for as long as you need it to. Ideal as a lesson, after you give your input on telling the time, for the children to practise, or you to assess their knowledge. If, like me, you hate been followed around the room by children who have 'finished' this is the ideal type of lesson for you. Just have a supply of spare blank worksheets at hand! There are 18 different times to the half hour (on green), 18 different times to the quarter hour (on orange) and 18 different times to 5 minutes (on red). Children select a time and stick it on their sheet then fill in the other two formats to show the same time as the one they selected. For example, if the choose a digital time they stick it over the blank digital clock on their sheet then complete the analogue clock and write the time in words on the remaining spaces on that line. I suggest having a choice of different colours on each table so the children can self differentiate (so on my lower ability table, for example, I gave them lots of green cards plus a few orange and one or two red). Included in this pack is the blank worksheet in PDF and Word (if you want to edit it) formats. Then there are three colour coded sheets of the challenge times that you will need to cut up before the lesson. On the summary PDF I have also added a link to the Google Drive folder where I keep the originals, you can then copy the original files and use Google Drawings if you want to change the times on the challenge cards.

Greater Than and Less Than KS1 pack: two lessons, interactive game, worksheets and posters

Greater Than and Less Than KS1 pack: two lessons, interactive game, worksheets and posters

A complete pack for two lessons to introduce, then reinforce using > (greater than), < (less than) and = (equals) to compare. There is a fun Notebook file for the IWB introducing Alice the Alligator that encourages the children to participate. This lesson compares numbers and amounts of objects. Included in that file is version 1 of the interactive game (also included in the price here as a separate download). The lesson finishes with an 'endless' activity for the children to test their understanding. Plus a 'greater depth' activity that is a two-player game involving place value. Three posters are included to reinforce the two symbols using the same graphics as the notebook file and game and a poster to explain the two-player dice game. As a follow-up lesson, later on, there are 4 worksheets (SEN, LA, MA and HA) that also compare calculations and measures. The lower sheets compare simple calculations and numbers, and the higher sheets include conversions, such as mm to cm, and harder calculations. I have included, as part of the Notebook file, the first version of the interactive game involving Alice, that compares numbers. There are two levels 0-20 and 0-99. This version of the game does not include using =, just < and >. On the intro PDF file there is a link to a folder that includes versions of that game that you can either install on computers in school or add to your school website or learning platform. Versions included in the folder are Flash, .exe and an HTML5 folder (the whole html5 folder can be uploaded to your webspace and accessed via the internet by linking to the index.html file). I am unable to provide technical support for installing and using the game, they are just as an added extra for this resource. My children have loved playing the two-player dice game as morning work when they arrive first-thing. Parents were grateful that we put a link to the interactive game on the school website so the children could practise at home.

Grammar and punctuation questions questions designed to look the same as those in the official 2016 sample paper. The look, difficulty and style of the questions are as close to the sample paper as I could manage. Personally I have been giving these to my Year 2 children as a lesson starter, two questions a day, then going through them with the class as soon as they have handed them in. Hopefully to prepare them for the actual test and also to use as extra evidence to assist in my teacher assessment. There is a video on YouTube aimed at children, that walks through these questions and how to answer them. The video can be found by a QR code on the sheets and the URL is on the last page (so it does not appear on the question sheets you may wish to use in class). We have found that putting the file and link to the video on our school website has been appreciated by our parents. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epmljqqcdTg I am creating extra sets of questions each week so keep checking for the next set.
