Rectangles Maths Investigation KS2

Sets of clues for children to work in teams to find the missing information. Quite hard. Teaches children to be systematic - start with what you know to find out what you don't. HA and MA versions differentiated. Lesson plan and Promethean flip-chart included. Area and perimeter knowledge required.

Show your working!

Show your working!

I did a practise test with my Year 6's today - did the 2011 Maths Paper A. Is this the best (or worst) example of 'show your working' that one of my middle attaining kids did?! I thought it was funny. That's me.

KS2 Complex sentences, sentence types and connectives

KS2 Complex sentences, sentence types and connectives

A one or two lesson plan for English in Year 6, or 5. With differentiated success criteria. Using the painting of 'Orthodox Boys'as a prompt for writing. Pie Corbett's using Art as a prompt for writing. Also using Alan Peat's sentence types. The painting generates a lot of discussion and the children are engaged to write. Worth doing a planning lesson before the writing lesson - so more like 2 lessons here.
