This is a resource I have created for a revision class in the run up to the summer exams.
It is based around the game Blockbusters.
There are 20 higher tier, multiple choice questions.
The game board is very simple to use and it is easy to change the colour of the hexagons to keep track of who is winning!
Edit: Fixed home hyper-links!
Edit 2: Corrected answer to 'V'
12 questions each with 4 answers but 3 of which are funny or silly so they should be able to work out the correct answers. Each answer can lead off to a brief discussion point for you or the class as a whole.
This KS2 game involves dice, coloured counters per player and the board which you can print off and enlarge. The game involves decision making and risk taking regarding when to spend and when not to spend as you travel up the board paying for different things as you go.
Lesson plan, teaching resources and differentiated work for 3 lessons
1) Partitioning numbers into tens and units (MA hundreds)
2) Adding multiples of 10.
3) Using partitioning strategy for addition.

A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.
Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.
Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.
*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*
I couldn't find any materials on this when I needed to teach my year 3 class what the equals sign REALLY meant.
I have included the lesson plan I used, the 3 differentiated worksheets and a Powerpoint I made.
Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.)
UPDATE: Have added a more challenging resource for year 3/4
A Japanese theme game. The children play the game which leads on to - Investigating the frequency score of 2 dice. (What are the best numbers to choose to help you win the game next time?) Lessons include find the odd one out starter activities, success criteria and worksheets. There are also questions to encourage the children’s mathematical thinking. My class find it fun to make up a quick Sumo dance… where they bow to each other before and after each game.
