Download my FREE & UPDATED Literacy and MATHS copymaster book.
It contains 40 fun activity sheets for maths and 40 for literacy. Although aimed primarily at key stage 2, many sheets could be appropriate for older pupils.
To make life simple I suggest that once downloaded you simply print out the whole book (87 pages including contents, answers etc.) and put it in a binder of some sort. Plastic pockets would be a good way of avoiding photocopying ring binder punch holes!

The first 2 sheets simply show 1 or 2 random numbers. The other 2 sheets put them in incomplete + or - number sentencesIf you want number sentences with answers viewable see the next section on this page. Number Snap This file contains 4 "Snap" games.

Investigations
These two files guide the children through an investigations requiring taking measurements, inputting data file & making predictions and testing them.

Circles
This is an investigation into π .The first sheet guides a group through discovering the relationship between diameter and circumference, then applies their result to predict the circumference of other circles. The second sheet introduces, applies and compares the 2 and 7 dec place value of π to calculate circmference. The third sheet introduces using π to calculate the area of circles.

Body Measures
This file has two active worksheets which investigate a relationship and applies it to make predictions.
One relates size of spans to cubits, creates a mean ratio and uses it to predict cubit measures from span measures. The other file does the same using length of foot and height.

Other Class/Group Warm Ups
These files display large printed number equations with the answer space blank. They are intended to be used on an interactive whiteboard.
You control the parameters of the randomly generated numbers using the setup sheet within the file. To find the correct answer scroll down.
Pressing the
[F9] key replaces it with another equation.
