Host your own Maths "Wow" this term, with either our Race into Space or Riddle of the Sphinx Digital Maths days - guaranteed to create a whole-school maths buzz! 

 

The Race into Space 

The search is on for the UK's next astronaut – and Major Tom wants your pupils' help in selecting the best person for the job. He’s found six well-suited candidates, all with different qualifications – but it’s up to you to decide which one will win The Race into Space!  

Probably the most challenging of our maths programmes, The Race into Space comprises a range of different activities, giving children opportunities to extend their mathematical thinking in context and explore some of the links between maths and science. In its digital format, it allows you to choose to either present it in one discrete block – or over the course of a number of days. If all the activities we provide were undertaken, classes would be engaged for between two and three hours.

The digital pack includes …

  • Two short films, to open and close the adventure …
  • Seven PowerPoint-based, whole-class activities (one for each year group), exploring age-appropriate examples of maths and science “crossovers”…
  • Printable Question and Answer Sheets for a range of questions linking maths with the science of space (all age-differentiated) …
  • Two activities combining maths with literacy (with printable Writing Frameworks).
 
Riddle of the Sphinx

 

The Riddle of the Sphinx

Our resident archaeologist, Dr Colorado Smith, has returned from Egypt with some exciting news: she's now collected all the clues required to solve the age old Riddle of the Sphinx - and open the Inner Sanctum in the Valley of the Kings. But as she can't do it by herself, she's on the lookout for schools to use their understanding of concepts of “measurement” to help her!
 
With a range of different activities, The Riddle of the Sphinx offers children contextualised, engaging and age-differentiated opportunities to further develop their understanding of “measurement”. The digital format that we’ve put together allows you to choose to either present it in one discrete block – or over the course of a number of days. If all the activities we provide were undertaken, classes would be engaged for between two and three hours.

The digital pack includes:

  • Two short films from Dr Colorado Smith, to open and close the adventure
  • Seven PowerPoint-based, whole-class activities (one for each year group), exploring age-appropriate aspects of measurement
  • Printable Question and Answer Sheets for a range of measurement-based maths questions (all age-differentiated)
  • Two measurement-based literacy activities (with printable Writing Frameworks)
