For absorbing lesson-planning ideas for Key Stage 2 maths, look at these activities designed to engage primary pupils in learning about numbers.
Staff at Eleanor Palmer School in Camden, North London, create factor bugs to help Year 5 children understand factors, prime and square numbers. They also teach their pupils about the relationships between the different times tables.
Meanwhile, a Year 3 class produces some very interesting patterns by writing down different times tables, underlining the last digits and joining them up around a circle.
And over in Year 5 the children use a counting stick to improve their multiplication skills. This simple but effective tool really helps to embed numerical understanding.
