Primary Magazine Issue 13hexagonal dominoes

Starter of the month

While you are relaxing during the summer holidays, take a look at these fabulous websites. There are lots of fun activities and starters, some of which you can set up specifically for your class. These are sites you’ll either visit again and again, or download and keep!

Foundation Stage

Key Stage 1

Revisit some old favourites and some new:

Key Stage 2

Most of these games can be played again and again:
  • Download 10 Quick Questions. Choose almost any primary school maths topic and the program will generate 10 random quick questions, with answers. Use for starters, plenaries, revision etc. It's well worth looking at the rest of the downloads too. 
  • For a great set of games to download and have available at anytime, including versions of Mathionaire and Countdown, go to Subtangent.
  • On the Scholastic Magazines website you can download their Daily Times Tables Teasers interactive games. You might need to sign in (free), but you don't need to be a subscriber.

There is lots there, but you do need to check them our. And still going strong is Count On. Check out the games old and new. Don't forget the National Strategies site: the function machine is great!

So browse, download, bookmark and enjoy!
