Find the resource here. (As a side note, I’d really like to not use TES to host these resources at some point, but haven’t really found a better option). This is pretty simple stuff. But look at this example problem pair. It’s sideways! I think these are best printed off (2 per page) and stuck… Read More »

Coordinates Resources

Download these resources here. There’s actually a lot more to coordinates than is perhaps given space for in a lot of schemes of work. I certainly have been guilty of skipping over the topic before, on the basis that the kids can ‘do it’ and have made trouble for myself later on down the line.… Read More »

Frequency Tables

I quite like these questions. Just because there’s loads to talk about when going through them. Things like Lots of things… Read More »

I really think the exercise that goes along with it is nicely thinky. Some variation and slow build up of activity. Other thoughts I’ve… Read More »

Substitution with positive integers

Download the resource here Sometimes a resource benefits from you deleting stuff, not adding stuff. I’ve got a much better understanding of what I want these resources to be, and how they’re helpful these days. Case in point. This used to be a massive PowerPoint stuff with activities, just for the sake of doing activities.… Read More »
