KS2 SATs arithmetic question sets

KS2 SATs arithmetic question sets

(0)
9 full KS2 SATs Arithmetic tests. 36 questions in each paper. 30 mins to complete. Answers included. I hate paper waste so I have created these tests on one piece of paper for pupils to complete, rather than printing out arithmetic booklets that waste tons of paper. I have used these in a variety of ways: pupils have used jotters and maths books for working out then written their answers on the sheets; they have had 1 sheet between 2 and completed the whole test in maths books and I have also displayed the sheet on the iwb and pupils have made their way through the test.

Guided Reading Making Connections Poster and Prompts

(0)
I have created two Making Connections Posters; one with key questions and the other with sentence starters for pupils use for making connections between the text they are reading and themselves, another text and the world. This activity helps pupils to deeper their understanding of a text through making links for themselves. Use the think-aloud strategy to model how to make each type of connection, using your list of personal connections to the particular text. This activity is brilliant when pupils extracting specific information from the text that they then make links to.

Rainforest Art & Design 6 week unit of work

6 week unit of work linked to curriculum theme - Amazon Rainforest. Throughout this theme, children will explore the work of artists such as Henri Rousseau and contemporary artist Ruth Daniels, to further their understanding in geography and the rainforest regions of South America. These artists give excellent opportunities to discuss composition; where the whole picture is filled with foliage, to compare the observational skills of the artists; to express preferences and extend the use of artistic language and vocabulary.
