Classroom Timers - Fun Timers We've decided to put our new fun timers, and timers for classrooms into a nice sub-section. These are great timers for children, or maybe meetings, or anything really. They just add some extra fun to the usual countdown timers :-) The Visual Way to Explore and Understand Data Students use InspireData® to investigate, analyze, and represent data and information in dynamic graphs and charts. InspireData tools make it easy to change variables and plot types so students can explore data in multiple, meaningful ways. This encourages them to investigate data analytically, ask more questions, and apply their understanding of the data to form better conclusions and continue exploration.

Coxhoe Primary School - Numeracy Considerable importance is attached to the children achieving and understanding mathematical processes, concepts and skills. A favourable attitude is encouraged by presenting it in an interesting and enjoyable way, allowing the children to actively participate in the learning process, thus creating a sense of achievement and confidence. There is a strong emphasis on the development of mental arithmetic and giving opportunities for pupils to use and apply mathematics in real life situations. Maths is taught through a daily Numeracy lesson which follows the principles of the Primary Numeracy Framework. In order to develop Mathematical skills some pupils may be set for this Numeracy hour and move either to the year group above for extension as More Able (MA) mathematicians or to the year group below for consolidation of skills. Class teachers also plan for opportunities to develop and apply key mathematical skills in other subjects throughout the year.

Interactive Whiteboards and Web Tools Interactive whiteboards are more than just glorified overhead projectors - the interactive tools allow teachers to create lessons that actively engage students in creative ways. They also allow us to use a variety of interactive web 2.0 tools with our students in a way that allows all students to participate actively. I hope to add more items to this page throughout the year - great links to other websites and my favorite Smartboard files. For now, it's a somewhat random listing of files that I've either created ordiscovered on the Internet.

Create Your Own eBooks - Richard Byrne Yudu is a free service that allows you to upload PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint files to create online magazines. The page turning effect and the zoom options are all built into the technology of Yudu and automatically activated. When your Yudu online magazine is created you can embed it into a blog, wiki, or website. The only drawback to Yudu is that the download option can be hard to find when viewing a document full screen and the download file is a zip file which is a turn-off for some people. Addition Resources from TopicBox.net - free teacher resources for every UK primary school teaching topic TopicBox is a free resource for all primary teachers. We have maintained more than 2,000 links directly to free online resources for 8 years and we’re adding more all the time. Our most popular subject (by far) is Mathematics which in turn contains our most popular topic: Multiplication. (It’s always been that way.) We love feedback from primary teachers like you so do take a moment to tell us how you use TopicBox in the classroom and perhaps any improvements you can think of!
