Online Christmas Maths Games
Here are a few Christmas Maths links to help you finish off the year!
ABCYa Christmas Lights: the more maths questions you answer... the more lights you get to put on your house! Students can choose from addition, subtraction, multiplication & division as well as 3 levels of difficulty.
Super Santa Kicker: use different angles and force to get Santa through the chimney. (This one is not for the feint hearted - the reindeer gives Santa a kick to send him on his way!)
Holiday Fun: answer multiplication questions to decorate your gingerbread house.
The Elves' Games Chest: has a range of games and activities including; telling the time, money, flash cards and puzzles.
Have fun with your students over the last few days before we have a break over Christmas!

Seeing as Christmas is starting to sneak up on us... just a reminder that we have another Christmas Freebie in our TpT store (for Foundation to Year 2).
Roll A Christmas Tree
What you need:* ‘Roll A Christmas Tree’ template (one per student)
* Dice (six sided)
* Coloured pencils/textas/crayons
How to play: Play in small groups (approximately 4)
Take turns to roll the dice, then colour the corresponding section of the Christmas Tree
Colour each section once - if you roll the same number again – miss that turn
The first person to colour all sections of their Christmas Tree is the winner
Extension:o When a player wins the game – keep playing until all members of the group have finished their tree. All players continue to roll the dice, instead of colouring sections of the Christmas Tree – add your own decorations/presents under the tree (however many were rolled)
o Make your own game – draw a Christmas picture using 6 different shapes. Give each shape a number between 1 – 6, copy and play with your friends (use blank ‘Roll a __________’ template)
o Use a 10 sided dice – add 4 decorations to the list that must be rolled before the game is finished
Have fun and enjoy the last few weeks with your students before Christmas!
