World Cup 2018: Maths Activities


Coming from a ‘football crazy’ class, I knew my class would want to spend the end of year engaging with content based around the FIFA world cup. This resource involves the whole class and is a way to consolidate maths through the World Cup.

I have included:
PPT for the names of 30 children
PPT for the names/groups of the countries in the World Cup
Scoreboard to track who is winning/competing against who.
Research sheet to engage children with the country they chose
Over 45 different maths questions WITH answers
Game rules
Example of a layout of who plays who

Children names will be drawn from a hat along with a country. They will then be representing this country in the game. Children will roll a dice 6 times. If either competing team rolls a 6, this equates to one goal IF they can answer the a maths question (included) correctly. If they get it incorrect, the goal has been saved by their opponent.

Aimed at KS2. Can be eaily adapted for your children too. In my class, there are only 18 students, but I have included enough for 30. (As there is 2 extra teams, the first two children ‘out’ can come back in.

An exhilarating, fun activity for those ‘End of Year’ days that we all crave activities for. We really enjoyed it :)
