Mental Maths activities
Use this activity as some end of term fun or pop it in your fast finisher’s basket.
Students solve the maths problems to match each letter to a number. Students then crack the code with the letter/number combination.
Dots and Boxes Game
A fun partner game to get students thinking strategically.
The game requires two players who take turns adding a single horizontal or vertical line between two unjoined adjacent dots. A player who completes the fourth side of a 1×1 box wins that box and puts their initial inside before taking another turn. The game ends when no more lines can be drawn. The winner is the player with the most boxes.
A great end of semester or fast finishers activity.
Make 4 Game
It’s game time, so switch on your master minds and think strategically.
Use as an end of term activity, for quiet time or as a social group exercise.
This is a two player game. Students choose a colour and try to build a row of four checkers (coloured dots) while keeping your opponent from doing the same.
Rows of four can be created vertical, horizontal or diagonal. The first player to connect four of their same colour, wins!
