CLIC Maths Where's Mully? Progress drive and activities

(1)
I have created this resource as I love teaching maths using the CLIC maths format and 'Where's Mully?' is among one of the most popular maths games in my class. (For me and the kids!) This game develops competency in quick mental division and is an excellent and instant assessment of your children's times tables knowledge. In this powerpoint I have worked through all of the progression steps. If you start at the beginning, you can see accelerated learning. I haven't included decimal numbers but once you get the hang of it, you can adapt it to whatever your children need. Please let me know if you have found this resource useful and how you have used it with your class. Enjoy

I deliver mindfulness lessons to 7-11 year olds and during the lessons I use lots of models to represent the process of mindfulness. The glitter jar is one of those tools that has proven to be a big hit with the kids. This is just a set of simple instructions to make a jazzy glitter jar. I hope you enjoy this resource, if so let me know. Enjoy :)

Quick Times Tables Game

(0)
This game is a basic bingo board with randomised numbers to help your class practise the times tables. It is based on TNT Tables from 10 Maths Miracles. I can't seem to download it so my husband made this basic version. If any one knows how I can obtain the real game, please let me know. I'm going to use this with my year 4 class but you can adapt it for any year group by changing the range or the time you give your children to work it out. Let me know how you get on. :)

An introduction to the Pied Piper. We read the text to support our topic, Medieval Life. We wanted to investigate archaic language and discover what the characters were searching for. I wrote my own shorter version so we could teach it through Talk For Writing. Let me know if you are interested in this version of the text.

I have made this resource for my y4 SEN maths group (intervention). I found they were still confusing ty and teen. I have created this to follow the progression steps and can be adapted for use with any year group. I have also included reading 4,5,6,7,8 and 9 digit numbers as well as decimals for my more able children. Please let me know if you have found this resource useful and how you have used it with your class. Enjoy

Questions to support mastery and greater depth for addition and subtraction in year 2

(0)
I have made this for my year 2 class. We have just completed the addition and subtraction unit and I wanted some fun questions to use as revision. I will show one question each morning for the children to attempt as they come into the classroom. Before our maths lesson, we will look at the children’s ideas and work through the problem together. I will then put up a similar problem after lunch for them to have a go again. You can easily edit the resource. I’ve taken the questions from the MathsHubs. www.mathshubs.org.uk I hope you find this useful. I might do the same at the end of each unit so watch out for length and mass. Let me know if you would find that useful and I’ll be more motivated to create it. :)

I created this presentation as a way to help my year 4 children to better understand and identify the many different feelings they have, to be able to name them specifically and to enable them to better express themselves when they have a problem . This is also an excellent way to develop emotional vocabulary for story telling. I hope you enjoy this resource, please let me know if you find it useful. Thank You :)

I have created this resource for my y4 class although it can be adapted. The activity is designed to be a quick fire number activity that develops competency in understanding place value, counting and calculation. There is an emphasis on the 9x tables and jigsaw numbers. Please let me know if you have found this resource useful and how you have used it with your class. Enjoy :)
Progression in Thinking

Progression in Thinking

(0)
If you are developing thinking skills, philosophy (P4C), growth mindsets or any other programme of study that focuses specifically on thinking in your school, this is a really useful document to help to better understand what progression of thinking in children might look like. It took me ages to write it and I expect there will be the odd spelling mistake etc... But it is an adaptable and very useful resource to use to measure the progression in thinking throughout the Early Years and Primary age range. Please let me know if you find this document useful and how you have used it in your school. Thank you :)
