Dinosaur Deals by Stuart J Murphy
Mike and his little brother, Andy, are headed for the Dinosaur Card Trading Fair. They’re ready to wheel and deal. It’s, 4 Stegosaurus for 1 Triceratops, and 2 Triceratops for 1 Allosaurus. But can they get what they really want: the tremendous, gigantic, ferocious, Tyrannosaurus Rex? The maths concept of equivalency — understanding when values are equal — is introduced in this fast-paced story as two brothers try to beat the clock and make the ultimate trade.

Please find video highlighting ‘First Level Recovery Programme’s’ rationale and content. This programme can be used for the teaching of pupils in P2/3 and as a small group intervention for P3/4.
The carefully structured programme aims to raise the attainment of pupils– allowing them to develop conceptual understanding in numeracy, develop confidence and develop their numeracy learning skills.
There are five Teaching Topics which focus on four different aspects of Numeracy, drawing on research into the mathematics that causes the most difficulties for pupils namely:
- The Number System
- Place Value
- Addition and Subtraction
- Multiplication and Division
First Level Recovery Programme will be coming soon!
Here is the fourth in our series of Algebra Tiles videos – Breaking Brackets.
Here is the third in our series of Algebra Tiles videos. This video continues on from the previous one, looking at the effective use of Algebra Tiles in solving equations.
Here is the second in our series of Algebra Tiles video tutorials – Expressions and Equations. The series is relevant for both primary and secondary colleagues who are interested in their use.
Here is the first in our series of progressive video tutorials on the use of Algebra Tiles.
Synopsis of Story
Perry the Penguin needs 9 clams to buy an ice scooter – but he’s not very good at saving. As Perry earns, spends, finds, loses, and borrows clams, a simple line graph demonstrates the concept of negative numbers

With ten in the bed, it’s a bit of a squeeze! Roll over, roll over! But the little one gets cold all alone, and soon all ten are snuggled up and fast asleep. Children will love reading this famous rhyme and shouting out the crash, thud and bump noises – (suitable for Early Level)
