Help Key Stage 2 pupils understand problem solving in maths, by using this lesson starter about a football activity.
It's time to take the team photo for the seven-a-side football team. Unfortunately, the photographer only knows the goal keeper's name, so he uses number clues to position the team to get the best photo.
Can your pupils follow the clues and work out which player stands where for the team photo?
The clues the photographer gives are listed in the Lesson Planning Pack Notes. It is suggested that you pause the video after each clue to allow you pupils to try and work out the solution at each step.
This video is part of the Lesson Planning Pack on problem-solving for KS2 maths, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
