Numeracy Cafe

A couple of weeks ago year 5 had a maths café where parents came into our class and played lots of times table games.

These are some of the games our class played:

Bang bang: To play this game two people need to answer the times table sums as fast as they can; whoever says the answer first wins!

Times table bingo: Choose any six numbers (I wouldn’t recommend 13 or 17). Another person needs to call out times table sums (e.g.3×5). If you have the answer to the question on your sheet then cross it out – the first person to have all their numbers crossed out wins.

Times table count up: Chose a times table; next everybody needs to count up to three numbers of the times table. Whoever reaches the tenth number of the times table is out. Keep on playing this game until only one person is standing – that person is the winner!
