Maths Year 5/6 Spring Algebra and Ratio

In the Spring term, it is likely you will begin to think about more formal SATs preparation for your Year 6s. While this revision will be driven by the specific needs of the children in your class, we hope to help by providing a set of SATs-style questions to accompany each Spring term unit: 'Y6 SATs Practice' is an additional 'Teaching & Group Activities' download.

Each unit still has everything you need to teach a set of related skills and concepts for the whole class: 'Teaching & Group Activities' provides a plan for whole-class teaching; a 'Slide Presentation' brings this teaching to life on the IWB. Fully-differentiated adult-led group activities follow, allowing for small-group personalised learning, where you may deal with children's 'Common Misconceptions'. Fluency can be rehearsed with our 'Practice Sheets', or learning checked with the 'Mastery Activity'. 'Extra support' activities enable targeted work with children who are well below ARE.

‘UNIT PLAN’ gives you a text version of all parts of the unit to use in your school planning documentation. ‘DOWNLOAD ALL FILES’ gives you that unit plan plus all of the associated documents. These bulk downloads are only available to Hamilton Friends and School Subscribers.

In-depth investigation: Stars and Crosses
Children find totals of the numbers in shapes on a 1–1 00 grid, make generalisations and then write a formula to find the total of any similar shape on the grid.
A presentation is available to guide children through the investigation.
