Primary School Resources

We intend to continue to populate this page over the coming weeks with some great maths activities, but we do not want to do so alone. Please use the volunteering form to send us any great ideas you have used with children, including any photos for which you have parental permission.

How tall is your school building?

  • Here’s how to find out using a single piece of paper! This fun maths video will help children measure the height of any building using just A4 – and some isosceles triangles!

Roadshow Puzzles

Thanks to the generosity of NRich, we are delighted to share these problems with you. They work best printed onto A3 and laminated, ready to put out around a hall. The resources required are ver basic – you probably have most of them in your school already.

Buchanan’s Brainbusters!

Puzzlemaster Douglas Buchanan has kindly allowed some of his puzzles to be used by schools during Maths Week. Check them out and download a copy of the pdf here. Depending on your computer’s settings, it may download directly into your downloads folder.
