Year 2

Here are some maths games to play today. You do not have to play them all, just have some fun with maths!


Finger Maths Multiplication


Challenge your grown up to the finger times table game we played during our live session on Monday.  Pick the times table that you need to practice the most!




This is one we play a lot at school!


Write either the 2, 5 or 10 x tables onto small pieces of paper or lollypop sticks. (Obviously, if you are confident with these timetables, write down the one that you are practicing at the moment)


Add some card / stick that say 'kaboom' ,  'miss a go', 'take a card from a different player'


Shuffle the cards/ stick and place them face down.  Take it in turns to draw a card/stick and answer the question. If you answer correctly, you get to keep the card. Answer incorrectly and you have to return it to the pile. If you pick up a kaboom, you lose all or you cards!!


You can play this with your grown-up, siblings or with your favourite cuddly toys!


Times Table Collector


First, write the times table that you are practicing on to small pieces of card or paper. 

Next, put each card on a different step of your stairs. 

After that, find a small ball (or a balled up pair of socks). 

Finally, toss the ball up the stair, whichever step the ball lands on, you need to answer that times table, then run up the stairs, take the paper and put in a bowl at the bottom of the stairs. 


EXTENSION: You could time yourself, how quickly (and safely) can you complete the challenge? Please be careful!


IF YOU PLAYED THIS GAME LAST WEEK: Choose a different times table or try to beat your fastest time!


Always, Sometimes or Never?


Read the statements on the attached document. Are they always true, sometimes true or never true? Some you will no the answers to straight away, others you will need to try and work out!
