The Mathematics Medicine booklet consists of 8 pages of maths problems suitable for Year 3 children.
The booklet uses the idea of a weird ‘medicine’ recipe from Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine.
George’s teacher has designed his own weird medicine and the ingredients are hidden in the book of problems. The children are presented with a series of maths problems, each of which is based on a calculation skill linked to the National Curriculum. Go to mathsticks.com for more information. Please rate!
This fun game uses 'Top Trumps' style cards to enable children to practice addition and multiplication strategies while reinforcing correct mathematical vocabulary.
There are 36 cards; each featuring an image of a mathstick figure and two mathematical statements.
The first statment on each card is an addition and the other a multiplication.
While playing a Top Trumps type game, the children challenge each other as to whose card displays the higer value - product or sum!
However, the educational value does not end there... The statements offer four different mathematical elements (or categories), as well as the product or the sum, players can also use individual factors or addends.
This game is ideal for Key Stage 2 children who have a reasonable understanding of multiplication facts and addition strategies. The download features my teacher notes and a set of 36 printable cards.

This decimal bingo game gives children lots of practice adding decimals and doesn't feel like it relies too much on luck. The children can use a host of mental math strategies while playing; so it's not just a 'hunt and cover' game.
The pdf file includes two sets of 6 game boards. One set uses numbers to only one decimal place, the remaing set stretches to two decimal places. There are nine different 'target' cards displaying a 'Bingo number' of either 1, 1.5 or 2. Each child has their own 'Decimals bingo board' and a set of counters. Each 'Decimal board' displays a set of 14 decimal numbers. The game plays like normal bingo except that playrs cover two numbers on each go - the numbers which give a total of the bingo number drawn.
Full details (and illustrations) are on my www.mathsticks.com website.
Lesson plan, teaching resources and differentiated work for 3 lessons

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.
