Go Further with Number Skills

Rate this resource

This book by Dave Kirkby from Spectrum Maths is aimed at students in Years Five, Six and Seven. It contains forty student activities in the form of photocopy masters. There are also detailed teacher’s notes accompanying each activity and special papers in the form of photocopy masters to help students record their work. These activities provide an opportunity for students to practise number skills, with a strong emphasis on operational skills. Each activity contains empty number boxes which students are required to complete, or sometimes colour. In most cases this is followed by an appropriate extension activity. The activities do not, in general, attempt to teach students the number skills they need. They provide practice and reinforcement for students who, having been introduced to the skills, need experiences to develop them. It was intended that the activities could be selected by the teacher to suit particular needs and situations and used in a variety of ways: *to integrate into the school mathematics programme *to consolidate other work in the school mathematics scheme *to provide enrichment material at appropriate times *to form support material for responding to wide ranges of ability.
