Penalty Shoot Out Maths Game
This is great for end of term fun!
All answers are included.
There are 3 matches and a total of 60 questions.
The questions are mental maths questions such as:-
• What is 1,000 minus 2?
• What is 7 squared?
• What is 2.3 add 1.4?
This resource is suitable for Key Stage 2 and 3 (years 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9).
The resource can be printed in black and white or colour.
The document is 6 pages in total.
Teacher’s Instructions - Match Rules
• Divide the players into 2 teams – e.g. blue and red (or choose team names).
• Each team nominates one person to take the 1st penalty.
The nominated students both stand up.
The teacher asks the blue team question 1 to the blue team player and awards a penalty if the student answers correctly.
The red team penalty taker is then asked the matching red question 1 and awarded a penalty if the answer is correct.
• Another person from each team is then chosen to take the 2nd penalty.
• Play continues for 10 rounds and then the number of goals is added up for each team.
• If there is a draw, play goes to extra time.
Each team chooses their best player to take the final penalty.
Only one question is asked and the 1st player to answer correctly wins the whole match for the team.
• At the end of the match, players in the winning team pick a “man of the match” - the student who they think played the best.
• This game can also be played by groups of students by allowing one student to be the “teacher”.
• It might be fun if the teacher uses their whistle and acts as the referee.
• Teachers may also want to allow a victory dance/celebration on scoring a penalty!

KS2 Maths Games: Printable activities for Area, Money, Doubles and Halves, Times Tables and Division, ideal for starters / warm ups, early finishers tasks, revision etc. Great for fun back to school / first week back revision. Expand your bank of Key Stage 2 Numeracy games with this bundle of easy-to-prepare and well-differentiated fun and strategic Four in a Row games. Most just require printing and laminating. I recommend printing most in A3 but A4 would be okay too. There are games for Area, Money, Decimals, Doubling and Halving 2 and 3 digit numbers and Times Tables and Division.
You can find previews and more information about each resource that is included in this bundle if you click on them but here are some details:
CHANGE FOR £20
2 standard game boards and 2 lower ability boards. Children roll dice to find out which column they can do a calculation in and then must work out the change required for £20 for one of the items pictured and priced in that column. Children write on the change using different colour whiteboard pens or add their initials. All answers included.
DOUBLES AND HALVES
6 boards to consolidate doubling and halving of two-digit numbers. Includes a one-star version of both the doubling and halving game for younger or lower ability pupils - sidebars are included, featuring all answers, which children can strike through when used. It’s also included without the answer sidebars in case your pupils don’t need this added support. This version focuses on lower 2-digit numbers and multiples of 10. Then there’s two different, more challenging versions of both the doubling and halving boards (two-star versions). All answers included. Play as the money game above.
3 differentiated boards: One-star version - area of rectangles, squares and right-angled triangles. No conversion required. Two-star version – as above but with more challenging calculations. Some conversion required between centimetres, metres etc. Includes decimal lengths and breadths. Three-star version - area of rectangles, squares, right-angled triangles and compound shapes. Some conversion required. Includes decimal lengths and breadths and more challenging calculations. Some of the compound shapes require children to work out the length of a side, using other given sides, before they can work out the area. Children will be able to do some of the calculations mentally but could use paper or mini whiteboards to work out the more challenging ones before writing in the answer on the grid.
TIMES TABLES / DIVISION
4 Times Table Boards in colour and black and white versions. All 4 available in LA supported versions (with answer sideboards – see money game above), standard version (2-9 times tables) and in a version with 11 and 12 times tables added. Use whiteboard pens as in the games above. The division game (1 board) requires calculation cards (supplied) to be printed on two different colours of paper or card. In turn children pick up a card and lay it on an answer.
DECIMAL PLACE VALUE
Consolidate place value to 2 or 3 decimal places. 2 differentiated boards: The 1 star board was originally designed to go with the cards to 2 decimal places, while the more challenging 2 star version was designed for the cards to 3 decimal places. However, both sets of cards would work with either board. For use with this game are two sets of 54 decimal number cards featuring numbers from 0.001 to 2.01 (1 set includes numbers up to 2 decimal places, the other up to 3 decimal places). This pack also includes a Jigsaw Puzzle.

Beginning French Numbers to 100 printable games: 6 gameboards for French Maths Four in a Row, with differentiation, plus 4 Jigsaw Puzzles (in PDF). Originally designed for French beginners and near beginners in Primary - KS2 (Year 4, 5 and 6) -and early Secondary - KS3 (Year 7) and equivalents, they suit a range of ages, abilities and experience, including for revision. For children to become familiar with French numbers, get them playing around with them in maths activities! Great starter, early finisher or group activities for both French and Maths lessons. Most questions can be answered using mental strategies.
FOUR IN A ROW
This is a fun, strategic game to consolidate French Numbers by answering maths questions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
4 different gameboards for maths involving numbers from 0 to 100 and generally more challenging maths questions
2 different gameboards for maths involving numbers from 0 to 40 with generally simpler maths questions
All answers included in separate files for at-a-glance checking by pupils or teacher
Non-colour versions included (in same file as colour ones for 0-40 version, in separate file for 0-100 version)
Laminate and use again and again. Children can work as pairs against pairs or one against one to get four correct answers in a row. Roll a dice to find which column to choose a calculation from (the columns are numbered 1-6). If there are no questions left in the one they've rolled, they could skip a go or roll again. They could use a different coloured whiteboard pen to record answers on the board or add an initial or symbol if using the same colour. I recommend printing in A3 but it will work fine in A4 too.
JIGSAW PUZZLES (in PDF)
Print, laminate and cut up the pieces. Puzzles 1 and 2 feature numbers from 0-40. Puzzles 3 and 4 feature numbers from 0-100. Calculations are in digit format, which pupils match with French number word answers to assemble the big triangle. Solutions are included in separate files.
I use these words for the four operations:
plus - add
moins - minus
fois - times
divisé par - divided by

Students have to compete to find the maths word that relates to the four questions. The answer to each question is a clue to the final word. If the student calls out the correct maths word after the first question they get 4 points. If they guess after the 2nd question they get 3 points and so on. Guess incorrectly then they are frozen out of that round.
Contains 15 rounds but set up so you can create your own (or get students to make them!) very easily.
