Colour by special numbers (squares, cubes and primes)

Colour by special numbers (squares, cubes and primes)

This is a colouring sheet to get students to begin to recognise square numbers, cube numbers and prime numbers working around grades 3 and 4 of the new 1-9 mathematics GCSE. Students colour based on whether the number in each box is a square number, a cube number or a prime number. The sheet requires 3 colours per student. Due to the colouring nature of this sheet, it is very easy to see which students understand and which need support. Looks fantastic on a classroom wall once completed. Solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully received.
