Here are some suggestions for whole-class, projectable resources which can be used at the beginnings of each lesson in this block.

You have four minutes to write down as many equations as you can involving B, T and S.

Either estimate the lengths of the red lines or, if you know how, calculate how long they are.

Random multiplications appear on screen every few seconds.

It is called Refreshing Revision because every time you refresh the page you get different revision questions.

Decode the message by doing the calculations given for each letter.

For each pair of numbers multiply the sum by the difference then divide the answer by 5.

Some of the Starters above are to reinforce concepts learnt, others are to introduce new ideas while others are on unrelated topics designed for retrieval practice or and opportunity to develop problem-solving skills.
