Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and recent lock downs, I have designed a series of graded worksheets which can be used to identify gaps in students work throughout the grades. This first batch looks at the material which should cover most topics in the Foundation Tier, graded from 1 to 5. There are approximately 3 to 4 sheets for each grade (with answers). The idea is that a student is given a grade 1 sheet to complete. Once marked and reviewed, the class teacher can then identify class issues, individual student issues and revise accordingly. The a second grade 1 sheet can be given to see if there is improvement. This can be completed for a third and sometimes a forth time. The same approach is then given to grades 2, 3, 4 and 5. This can also be used to seek what worked in lock down with on line learning and what did not.

Suitable for both KS2 and KS3 students. Due to COVID the way we teach has altered somewhat. These days I find it easier to have my examples preprinted with students filling in the gaps between examples in class with the aid of the teacher at the front. A workbook is then provided which allows the student to answer directly in the book. Note: I tend to print the examples as A4 and the workbook as an A5 booklet. Lesson 1: Examples and workbook on Decimal place value. Lesson 2: Examples and workbook on Addition of decimals Lesson 3: Examples and workbook on Subtraction of decimals Lesson 4: Examples and workbook on Multiplication of decimals The examples are also available to buy as a PowerPoint lesson on the shop.

Furthermore at home students can access a video example or two with the QR code on the front of the workbook (just in case they are struggling at home) Answers are provided and also answers to the examples

This set of exercises can either be used as a starter during the last two weeks of term or all together as a lesson piece. Designed with a Christmas feel, the task involves students either creating mathematical equations or using the process of elimination to find the numerical values attached to each of the Christmas pictures presented. The material is useful for either KS2 or KS3 students, however GCSE foundation students would also have fun with this material.

This lesson teaches students the exact trig values for the sin cos and tan of 30, 45, 60 and 90 degrees. The lesson shows two ways to remember the values by either table or triangles. The lesson is also accompanied with several worksheets. The idea being that one worksheet is given at the end of teaching the lesson for students to demonstrate what they now know. Then throughout the year or two further worksheets can be given to check on them retaining the information taught.

These revision cards are designed for both higher level and foundation level for KS4 GCSE mathematics grades 9 to 1. Each card has a topic explanation and a QR code which takes the students to a video related to that topic. Ideal for any student revising for Mathematics at home or in the classroom. Personally I have each slide printed and on the wall as a group of four. additionally I have printed them out and cut them into individual cards placed in an envelope for students to use at home whilst revising.

These activities are aimed at key stage 3 students. They could also be used as revision for GCSE students. The pack contains GCSE foundation style questions including standard form, ratio, number work, fractions, algebra and much more. Answers are included. Each round consists of four questions. Print the slides 8 to 13 on A4 paper and place one printed slide per table Put students into pairs (either by choice or teacher selection) Each are given a copy of slide 14 and a few sheets of pieces of A4 paper. The pairs are designated a starting table and the timer (slide 2) is started. The students are then given 5 minutes to answer the four questions on that table. Once the five minutes is up the students move clockwise to the next table and start the next set of four questions and the timer of slide 3 is started. This continues until all students have completed each set of questions. The exercise should take no longer than 30 minutes At the end students remain at their final table and swap answer sheets with the nearest table. Go through each question with the class before revealing the answers. Finally, students ad up their score and the highest score gets a prize! This exercise gives students a chance to try GCSE style foundation questions and see a demonstration on how they should be answered.
