Extra Maths Support - Year 6
Each week, inevitably, there are some children who are unable to succeed on the age-related expected objectives. These extra support activities can be done by a teaching assistant with a small group of children. There are two activities for each week, linked to the maths in Hamilton’s plans for that week. Each activity consists of a detailed but simple bullet-pointed lesson outline for the TA and a Child Sheet. These intervention activities, if used consistently as you go along, have the potential to make a lot of difference to the children who are below ARE.
Zoom, zoom, zoom (1): Understanding place value in numbers with 3 decimal places; Placing numbers with one, two or three decimal places on a number line. Mystery moves (2): Multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 an d1000.
Score a century (1): Adding any pairs of 2-digit numbers (mentally). Tantalizing ten thousand (2): Adding pairs of 4-digit numbers using column addition.
