Make maths fun with activities and games Teaching Assistants at Glenbrook Primary School, South London, showcase some of the creative resources, activities and games they have created to help support maths in and out of the classroom.
Sue’s card game reinforces some essential basic skills for counting-on and ‘change from a pound’ exercises. She also monitors the whole-school Maths Challenge to see which children are struggling with mental maths.
Sophie uses the mini-computer Roamers to do some work with angles, distance and estimation. She also uses art on the walls and in the class to help with times tables.
Elaine has adapted all sorts of playground games to add a maths element, and has made some games for wet play days.
