We make a lot of use of online maths games and activities in school.  Some of the links below are our most popular.

Why not try some of them out and let us know what you think…?

#### Why should I play maths games with my child?

Children make progress best as mathematicians when they regularly repeat skills and practise them until they become embedded.  This can be quite a long process sometimes, and so the use of the context of an exciting game or interesting activity can be highly motivating.  In our experience, our children learn best when they are having fun and that’s what games are for!
