  3. Why not something linked to your current topic. I did something similar during an Ofsted inspection using dinosaurs. This wasn't on the IWB though. I gave each child 10 small dinosaurs plus1 piece of green artificial grass (land) and 1 piece of blue carpet tile (water). I asked them to put a certain number of dinosaurs in the water and asked how many they had left on the land. Change numbers depending on each child's ability. We then said the number sentence to go with each calculation. The children worked in pairs on the carpet and then in small groups to record in books.
     
  4. I am doing something similar this week. I have used cars in a car park on Smartboard on the IWB. There are 10 cars in the car park, 3 drive out. How many are left? Write the number sentence to go with this.
    The task is a similar activity using toy cars and a cark park drawn on card. Working in small groups, children record sum on a small whiteboard.
    Hope this helps!
     
  5. I played beat the teacher, the children had to work out a simple subtraction sum using their fingers if they got it right they got a point if they got it wrong I got a point!
    Group activities

    How many more does your friend have? How many do they have all together?
    Ten pin bowling is always a good one.
