Things We Think Are Awesome

 

The children at Ambleside C.E. Primary School in the UK create their own Maths online games during their Numeracy Hour. Here are some of the programs made by the pupils either individually or as a group.

 

Your Number's up! -This is a four player game (5 if someone is in charge of the mouse). Made completely by Callum, Jennifer, James, Alex, Pieran (and play tested by Jonathan)!

 

THE TABLE TREES - Practise your tables with this great activity designed by Tarn and Alex in Year 4.

 

THE TOTALLY MENTAL MACHINE - challenging mental arithmetic "real world" problems! - Thanks to the children who invented the questions and defined the random number ranges to create just the right amount of challenge!

Testimonials

“The kids got their end of year report cards last week and the great thing is both of them can see the improvements in Maths and English and had big smiles on their faces. Aaron’s teacher commented to him that in her 6 years teaching at his school she has only ever given one A and Aaron got that for his Maths. Suffice to say he is very proud. – Chris, 15/12/2010”
