Here are some ideas to do at home.

1. Beat the clock


2. Dice


3. Pattern making


We use times tables rockstars to get faster at our times tables.

A puzzle to try!

Katie had a pack of twenty cards numbered from 1 to 20.

20 cards numbered from 1 to 20.

She arranged the cards into six unequal piles.

The numbers on the cards in each pile added to the same total.

What was the total and how could this be done? Are you curious enough to find out?
