Maths - In the spotlight

Maths games are all we want for Christmas

Make maths merry with 12 new, interactive maths games from TES Topics, available for free from the makers of TESiboard resources.

Why we like it

These games can be launched in seconds and are colourful, festive and easy to use in groups, pairs or individually. Our favourite is the elf-flinger game.

What's that?

Father Christmas has all the presents stacked in his warehouse but his crane has broken. To help, pupils must fling an elf up to grab the presents before falling safely to the ground. But pupils have to choose the correct angle and power to reach the presents.
