In addition to our Christmas activities see also our huge collection of Fun Maths games, puzzles and challenges.
The huge collection of End of Term activities might also be of interest to you.
Christmas activities make those December Maths lessons interesting, exciting and relevant. Whether mathematical activities are presented in a Christmas themed way or, due to the festive mood, normal mathematics learning is replaced with puzzles, games and seasonal fun, you can be sure that we have some excellent ideas for you here on the Transum website.
That last week of term before the Christmas holiday is the perfect time to ensure that pupils develop a delight in mathematics by seeing it in an exciting, enjoyable and engaging way (more exciting, enjoyable and engaging than the rest of the term that is!).
Just to add a little more traditional festive fun to December lessons you could visit the Maths Advent Calendar each day to open a door.
