Give students a 100 square and a counter, which they slide
from square to square as you all count out loud. Students can help each
other to learn with a laminated 100 square and a whiteboard marker. One
student says a number and their partner has to circle the same number
on their 100 square.

Numbers
grid game
(MS Word 48 KB)
This works like Blockbusters, where one team (or student) is red and the
other green. The aim of the game is to get a line of squares across or
down the board as appropriate. The team "wins" the square by
giving its coordinates and then saying the number correctly. This resource
is completed for the numbers 2069, but also has a blank grid so that
you can create your own games.

Number sequencing
• count forwards and backwards in tens or hundreds from any two
or threedigit number
• recognise and continue number sequences
• read, write and order whole numbers
• use correctly the symbols <, >, =
• round whole numbers to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000

Give a selection of number words to groups to students.
They work together to put the numbers in the right sequence, signalling
that they have finished by singing a numbers song in the target language.
To up the challenge you could give them a few red herrings that they should
not include in the completed sequence.
Ladder
Game
(PDF 220 KB)
Give each student or pair of students one of the ladders. Call out seven
numbers. They have to write them down and then arrange them in ascending
order on the ladder. Use the bigger ladder for writing the numbers as
words and the smaller one for writing digits. You could also do this activity
with times, time words and months.

Addition and Subtraction
• recall all number bonds, addition and subtraction, for each number
to 20
• work out what they need to add to any twodigit number to make
100, then add or subtract any pair of twodigit whole numbers
• handle threedigit and fourdigit additions and subtractions [for
example, 3000  1997, 4560 + 998]
• use written methods to add and subtract numbers less than 1000,
then up to 10000,
• use written methods to add and subtract numbers involving decimals

Multiplication and Division
• multiply and divide any whole number by 10, 100 or 1000
• find remainders after division
• multiply and divide decimals by 10 or 100
• recall times tables to 10 x 10 and use them to derive quickly
the corresponding divisions
• double and halve any twodigit number
• multiply and divide, at first in the range 1 to 100 [for example,
27 x 3, 65 ÷ 5], then for particular cases of larger numbers
• use written methods for short multiplication and division, then
long multiplication, (multiplication by 2digit numbers) and long division
(division by 2digit numbers).

Percentages
• understand that 'percentage' means the 'number of parts per 100'
and that it can be used for comparisons
• find percentages of whole number quantities, using a calculator
where appropriate
Fractions
• understand unit fractions [e.g. 1/3 or 1/8] then fractions that
are several parts of one whole [e.g. 2/3 or 5/8], locate them on a number
line and use them to find fractions of shapes and quantities.
• recognise the equivalence between the decimal and fraction forms
of one half, quarters, tenths and hundredths
Fractions
Postit grids (French)
(PDF 17 KB)
Angles
• recognise right angles, perpendicular lines and parallel lines
• know that angles are measured in degrees and that one whole turn
is 360 degrees and angles at a point total 360 degrees
• recognise that angles at a point on a straight line total 180
degrees and know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees
• recognise angles as greater or less than a right angle or halfturn,
estimate their size and order them; measure and draw acute, obtuse and
right angles to the nearest degree
Geometry
• visualise and describe 2D and 3D shapes, especially triangles,
quadrilaterals and prisms and pyramids of various kinds; recognise when
shapes are identical
• make and draw 2D and 3D shapes and patterns
• recognise symmetry in regular polygons
• recognise the geometrical features and properties of regular polygons
including angles, faces, pairs of parallel lines and symmetry, and use
these to classify shapes and solve problems
• visualise 3D shapes from 2D drawings.
• find perimeters of simple shapes
• find areas of rectangles

Measurement
• convert one metric unit to another [e.g. convert 3.17kg to 3170g]
• know the rough metric equivalents of imperial units still in daily
use
• interpret numbers and read scales
• record measurements using decimal notation
Time
• read the time from analogue and digital 12 and 24hour clocks
• use units of time  seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks  and
know the relationship between them

Statistics
• interpret tables, lists and charts used in everyday life
• construct and interpret frequency tables,
• represent and interpret data using graphs and diagrams, including
pictograms, bar charts and line graphs, then interpret a wider range of
graphs and diagrams, using ICT where appropriate
• know that mode is a measure of average
• know that range is a measure of spread
• draw conclusions from statistics and graphs

During the key stage, pupils should be taught the knowledge, skills and
understanding through:
• activities that extend their understanding of the number system,
including whole numbers, fractions and decimals
• applying their measuring skills in a range of contexts
• drawing inferences from data in practical activities
• exploring and using a variety of resources and materials, including
ICT
• using mathematics in their work in other subjects.
