Throughout school closure, we have provided the White Rose Maths resources, as this is what we use in school. However, at the moment these resources are re-capping work that the children have already done. So, although the resources are here (and feel free to use them) it is a perfect time to mix things up. So why not try some of these resources?
There are loads of interactive maths quizzes here. Children can choose an area of maths that they are interested in (or that they want to do more work on) and click on that link. At the top of each page there is an example that the children can click on to show them what to do and, if they are struggling, at the bottom of each page there are links to click on to practice earlier steps. Try them out and battle against the clock!

How about creating a map for your house and/or garden to make an orienteering course?! At each location on the map, leave a question that the people carrying out the orienteering challenge have to answer and record on their sheet (to prove that they have visited each location). The questions could be about anything (just general knowledge) or they could be on the same theme (for example, questions all about 'My Family' or 'Famous Singers' or 'Britain's Got Talent' or 'Famous Scottish Cyclists'!!!)
Here is a link to an orienteering website to find out more and get inspired:
