We’ve had an amazing 2018, twelve months that have seen us taking our creative maths, science, literacy and history programmes to schools in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Isles, Denmark and Turkey - working with more than 68,000 children and young people! And 2019 is going to be even more exciting, with the launch of a new whole-school maths programme, The Riddle of the Sphinx - and two new Time Travel Tourists, bringing to life the science behind the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landings, software developer Margaret Hamilton, and astronaut Neil Armstrong himself! Not only that, but we've another new character for World Book Day - bookshop owner Paige Turner, on a quest to help children everywhere bring stories to life.
We'd like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a really Happy New Year. And, in the festive spirit, we hope you'll enjoy our seasonal, free resource - The Twelve Days of Mathsmas!
With the days counting down towards the end of term, you'll want to keep pupils learning - but without dampening their spirits, of course. Our Twelve Days of Mathsmas helps you do just that, by giving children opportunities to practise their skills with number operations in a festive way. There are four formats available - for EYFS, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2 - and just in case you've been overindulging on the mince pie front, there are even teachers' versions too - complete with all the answers!
