Get into the festive spirit while providing your students with the opportunity to apply reasoning to maths tasks in the days leading up to Christmas. They can be used at the start of each day, or when there is a convenient slot. Alternatively, they can be incorporated into the daily maths lesson.
Paired work is encouraged since the discussions that result when working together help to clarify students’ thoughts and ideas. Each slide contains notes that give advice on how to use the activities, what to look out for, and answers where applicable.
