Inspiring Pupils

Primary

Looking for support to enrich your pupils’ learning beyond the maths curriculum?

Resources to inspire

Our extensive collection of free Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 enrichment resources are here to give you some inspiration! We have a range of lesson ideas, games and apps to fascinate and engage your students.

Calculator Crunch… it’s fun and it’s free!

Our Calculator Crunch programme is a fun way to engage Year 6 pupils with maths whilst also developing their confidence with calculators so they’re ready for maths at secondary school. The activities provide extra practice for Year 6 and 7 pupils in key areas of the maths curriculum.

Running over nine days each summer, each morning we release a new challenge on Twitter and on this webpage, along with a set of home learning resources.

Parents and carers can use the challenge activities with their children at home, and you can incorporate them into work you’re setting for your pupils, either in school or remotely.

There’s also a template you can use to create certificates for students who take part, to award their achievements.

Pupil competitions

We support Maths Week England, which runs every year in November, and the International Day of Mathematics, held annually on 14 March. We also produce resources and competitions to coincide with these events that are free for you to use.
