A wealth of interactive teaching programs form Ambleside CE Primary School. Well worth a visit.

You will find puzzles and games galore to please and tease your mind at this site. Some of the simpler word and maths games would be useful for reinforcing learning, literacy and numeracy at Key Stage 1, and older children and adults alike will enjoy much of what else is on offer. You can also do unpleasant things to the Spice Girls!

Mathematical Games
Five maths games with a difference allow children to follow directions, construct their own boards and even formulate their own rules for an unknown game. The ideas come from Indian rock carvings depicting board games and, with suitable direction, children can apply their own knowledge to solve problems relating to the individual games and improve their numeracy. A fun applied resource for Key Stage 2 maths pupils and the Daily Maths Lesson.

For a little light-hearted but, nonetheless, useful maths practice, why not visit the Mathemagic site and enter into some number wizardry. Children love card tricks and puzzles and you will find a few here that will leave those not in the know spellbound whilst developing their numeracy skills.
