Christmas Activities for KS2 Maths contains fun festive mathematical activities, designed harness children's enthusiasm at this exciting time of the year and keep them on task. The activities are linked to the National Numeracy Strategy targets, so integrating them into your planning is easy.
The fun activities will help reinforce children's knowledge of number bonds, increase their understanding of fractions and percentages, and give them practise calculating the areas of 2-D shapes.
Now you can exploit the children's natural enthusiasm for the season and inspire them to create especially good work with this bank of fun, stimulating ideas and activities - so you can all enjoy the run-up to Christmas!
Christmas Activities for KS2 Maths has been designed to take you through the term leading up to Christmas, with the targets of the Key Stage 2 Numeracy Strategy autumn term for Years 3–6 specifically in mind. The book, as a whole, covers a wide spectrum of these targets whilst providing lots of fun activities, all linked to Christmas. Each task, or activity, has educational rigour, making the work suitable for introducing a topic or reinforcing it. The sheets are not designed as time fillers and should not be used as such. They are meant to become an integral part of your numeracy planning for the first term of the year.
The reindeers’ speech bubbles at the bottom of the sheets are useful starting points for plenary sessions. The contents page provides brief descriptions of the numeracy objectives for each sheet.
