This starter generator is wonderful for creating selected arithmetic questions. It also provides the answers. The levels can be adapted to suit the needs of the learner. The topic can be easily varied.
This website also has many other wonderful question generators.
Developing problem solving
This is a great resource as it limits the number of questions but also is differentiated across four levels of maths. Your child should choose the level most suited to their capabilities.
Optional enrichment opportunities (including games, investigations, puzzles and problems)
This is a rich resource full of great games and creative activities. Be aware that the level of challenge is scaled from one to three stars, as well as each activity having age guidance.
These are additional problem solving challenges, some of which are really engaging as they link maths and art.
Education City is an online resource which the children are also able to use—there are a number of different activities to support all areas of the curriculum. Problem solving, such as Sudoku puzzles, are also great, as are games such as Countdown.
This is a fun site where children can try to solve simple algebraic problems which use emojis.
Knowledge organisers for science can be found at the following link (scroll down to the bottom of the page):
These will be updated with each term’s topic. Here are some suggested ways that they can be used at home:
Give the definitions without the spellings – children have to find which spelling matches the definition.
Provide some simple questions that can be answered using the information on the organiser.
Ask children to write their own quiz questions using the organiser – then try and answer them the following day!
Read, cover, write, check of key facts.
'Just a Minute': based on the popular Radio 4 show, ask children to try to list facts from their knowledge organiser for 1 minute straight, without repetition, hesitation or deviation.
Flashcards: get children to make a set of flashcards that include all of knowledge items for one section. They can then use them in spare moments for self-quizzing.
Give your child a 'blanked out' knowledge organiser to fill in with as much detail as they can recall.
The following links are also useful when supporting the learning of science at home:
Crest Awards - Science awards you can complete from home.
