Exploring fractions on a grid
Exploring fractions on a grid
The topic of fractions can be one of the most challenging to teach and learn in primary schools with many hidden misconceptions ready to take hold as children dig deeper into the idea of rational numbers. It is a topic that children need to have time to explore and think about, using a variety of representations to help make sense of it. Here is a simple starting point that can be used in Y4-6 as an activity for exploring fractions as quotients, improper fractions, mixed numbers and equivalence.
 
New baseline assessment to start 2020
New baseline assessment to start 2020
Baseline assessments are to be reintroduced in 2020 and it looks like the national testing system will be narrow in the skills assessed, concentrating on numeracy and literacy. It will be completed in the first few weeks of children starting in Reception classes. In addition to the new baseline testing, teachers will still be required to complete the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. What a welcome to school! 
 
Cross-curricular maths teaching and National Poetry Day
Cross-curricular maths teaching and National Poetry Day
National Poetry Day comes round each September and it is definitely a good time to introduce some poems into your maths lessons. However, thinking about it, every day is a good day to bring some sort of creative, fun, thought-provoking ideas into your mathematics. This may be in the form of poetry, but it could also be through art or stories or science or any other creative context.
 
Inspiring your class with maths - give a problem within a context
Inspiring your class with maths - give a problem within a context
Giving a mathematical challenge to your class can provide purpose to the maths and sparks children's interest, particularly if set in an inspiring context. The problem solving process involves reasoning and thinking mathematically, while applying the skills or concepts they are learning. That’s all great, of course – but finding appropriate problems to match the learning objectives is not always easy and they are rarely set within a context that suits your class. So where can you begin?
