Mental Maths Magpie

Mental Maths Magpie

Mental maths, but not as you know it. A game used when on placement with questions from Pitch and Expectation, newly typed up and prepared. Time to get the kids outside and enjoying mental maths.

This is an active mathematical game based on a PE game. Rules, answers and differentiated (four ways) questions are included. The idea is that the children run from a corner, grab a question and work it out to earn points for their team. This mental arithmetic game has been made for my KS2 class – hence the differentiation four ways – but could be easily adapted by adding/removing questions.
