I’m back with 2 different resources today! First up is the November version of the Maths calendars that I’ve been producing. The other resource is a mathematical thinking resource which I posted on Twitter and people really liked, so that’s on this blog post too!
For anyone who is new around here, the aim of the Maths calendars is to give a Maths question a day for every day of the month. I’ve created a lower KS2 and an upper KS2 version. As always, I leave these as VERY LOOSE descriptors because where your kids are may be TOTALLY different to where someone else’s kids are. I’d say the Y5/6 version is very definitely Year 5/6 (could even be used as Y7 transition who knows!) so just make sure you check out all of the questions before you just hand it out. You could use these in class, or for home learning or for homework!
As ever, both calendars are available in 3 versions: fully black and white, coloured text and then full colour! I’ve not labelled these two versions on purpose because you may give different children in your class different versions – I know I will be.
Lower Key Stage 2 (Year 3-4ish) version
Upper Key Stage 2 (Year 5/6ish) version
Mathematical thinking resource
I posted this on Twitter and people LOVED it and a few people asked me if I would share it, so here you go! I am so glad that something I decided to have a play around with is going to be useful to at least one other person. I’ve been using these hashtags in my classroom and as Maths lead, I’d like to introduce them across school to improve children’s mathematical thinking and oracy in Maths lessons.
I know there are many resources like this around
I hope everyone has had a wonderful half term holiday. If there’s anything I can do to help, please let me know!
Feel free to download and share on your school websites/with parents/with classes/with teachers! If you do decide to download let me know – I’d love to hear from you/see what you do with them! Please don’t claim them as your own though! I don’t really wanna see my hard work on TES or similar!
