53 Bonfire Night Number Chaos (a)

Festive PowerPoint Presentation

53 Bonfire Night Number Chaos (a)

Bonfire Night Mania (a to d)
There are four editable and differentiated presentations with questions ranging in difficulty from level 2 to grade A*. The questions test mental arithmetic as well as maths skills and knowledge. Starts with a bit of the history of the plot and the consequences for those caught. Note that in (d) the 1 and 3 below are reversed.

Lots of colour and explosions as bangers and rockets fill the night sky.

1. The Firework Display
Enjoy the firework display with your friends.

2. The Gunpowder Plot
It's not going down to well in the Houses of Parliament. Some things never change!

3. The Bonfire
Watch the fireworks and warm yourself by the fire.

There are 36 questions in all. They could be used as "good fun" starters leading up to 5th November in blocks of 12 or you could use the printable question sheet containing all 36 questions in a more extended activity.

Guidance on using the Festive Presentations.
Please bear in mind the following when purchasing from the Festive area:
• The questions are designed to be done mentally and calculators should not be used.
• The questions range in difficulty from level 2/3 at the beginning of block (a) to grade A/A* towards the end of block (d)
• The 36 (or 48) questions within each block increase in difficulty slightly as you work through each set of 12 questions.
• There are some easier questions scattered throughout the blocks so that everyone has a chance to get at least some correct.
• Because the questions test maths skills and knowledge as well as mental arithmetic it might be that a very bright primary student with sharp mental arithmetic skills may be able to answer a few of the questions in block (d) but would obviously not be able to answer questions on such things as irrational numbers, negative indices and trigonometry etc.

Bearing in mind the above, as a very rough guide for all presentations in the festive area the suitability is as follows:

Block (a) Questions at the start are appropriate for some young primary school children including Key Stage 1 and average ability primary students at Key Stage 2 towards the end of the block. They are also suitable for SEN and low ability students at secondary school.
Block (b) Able/very able groups in primary schools /a spread of middle groups at Key Stage 3 and 4 at secondary.
Block (c) Some middle and higher sets at secondary school at both Key Stage 3 and 4
Block (d) Top sets and some good middle sets at Key Stage 4.

Overseas Teachers
Bearing in mind the above, as a very rough guide for all presentations in the festive area the suitability is as follows:

Block (a) Suitable for a range of students from age 7 to11.
Block (b) Suitable for a range of students from age 9 to15
Block (c) Suitable for a range of students from age 11 to15.
Block (d) Suitable for the brightest students at age 14 to17.
