Ideas for maths games

Data overload

With all the images packed into the posters they’re a great source of information for data handling.  Whether it’s used to create simple tally charts or expanding those further into bar graphs or pictograms, the options are endless.


I spy shape sorter

Play a simple I spy shape spotting game. For example, kick things off with a shape: 'I spy with my little eye a triangle'.  Make this trickier by using just the properties of a shape: 'I spy with my little eye a four sided shape' or 'I spy with my little eye a shape with a pair of parallel sides'.


Problems beyond the poster

Pose problems linked to the posters and then take the children beyond the images to really get them thinking. For example if everyone wanted a sparkler and each pack of sparklers contains five sparkers, how many packets would you need to buy?  If each packet costs £1.25 how much change would you receive from a ten pound note?


Multiplication possibilities

Spot the endless multiplication possibilities.  Count the number of ducks. How many legs do they have? There are three dogs, so how many paws?  I spy 30 gloves – how many people are wearing them?
