Lots of fantastic games to play for Maths, Reading and Writing (Phonics) and other subjects.

 

We change these games frequently, so check back regularly for new things to learn and do!

 

We have played some of these games at school in group times so children may be familiar with them. In Reception we call them "the folders" games.

We love these money games. They're good practise for learning about counting coins of either all the same value or mixed values. They go up quite hard!!

They can be used to support or build upon the skills the children are learning in school.

Try this new game! It's a bit like the old fashioned game "hangman" but instead if you don't guess the word correctly then the sharks will get the duck!!

Great for practicing letter recognition.



Do you find your child is getting confused when reading or writing b d or p? This game gets them to sort these letters into bowls so they have to practise looking really carefully at the letters to tell them apart.
