As a TA who is frequently asked to cover classes I have found this resource invaluable. It's a great as a filler and as a last minute or replacement lesson it's so amazingly versatile. I highly recommend adding this to your resource bank! Thanks again teaching packs for yet another amazing resource! 🙂

A fantastic pack!

I have been using the different activities in this pack to improve speed and confidence with my current year 6 class. The pack has helped boost class and also given me extra time as a teacher. Thank you Teaching Packs - another great resource!

This pack has been immensely useful. I have been setting weekly mental maths tests and have seen a huge improvement in the children's speed of calculation. They enjoy a lot of the activities as lesson starters and have become quite competitive. There is something for all abilities. Fabulous!

Loads of great resources. Quick practice sheets for independent pupil practice, posters for class lessons/display, challenge sheets that I'll use for parental engagement with homework and applied skills. Fantastic. I love the flexibility your resources offer.

The children loved these! They were used in their morning activity packs and they asked for more and more!

Deeper Thinking Skills

I really enjoy using the activities in this pack. Teaching Intellectually Disabled students, where one student may know much more than the other and where the grade level of a student does not matter, I have found that this particular pack makes the students think deeper than the normal math problem would. Intellectually Disabled students lack this ability and need help in reasoning and thinking a problem through to come up with the correct answers.

This pack provides much of what they need. It fills in the gaps and also provides me with needed information as to what to teach them more of to expand their knowledge.

I use this as a daily activity to start off the math class.

Thank you for this pack.

Wow!!! What can I say? This range of Mental Maths resources is invaluable. It has certainly helped this old Year 3 teacher feel a lot younger by injecting some fun and excitement into his daily teaching.

Thank you!

This resource contains so many fantastic mental maths activities. The work is differentiated so many ways and all include the answers - meaning it can literally just be picked up! I even find things like the circle calculations self explanatory meaning I have left them with supply and for homework. It is such a helpful resource.
