    Good evening,

    I have been asked to run a girl's maths club as part of our school improvement plan is to narrow the gap between boys and girls progress in maths. It will target the middle ability girls to boost their confidence and just give them that little extra push.

    I hope to use nrich for maths challenges but has anyone any ideas for fun activities or games? It will be for y3 and y4 for this upcoming half term and then y5 and y6 after Christmas.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hi Jaycee. No ideas to share yet I'm afraid but I'm starting a Maths Club in the New Year and am looking for ideas too. If you don't mind I'll keep an eye on your post. If I get any ideas or suggestions from others I will, of course, share them.

    Google '24 game' - it's very useful for building mental maths skills and speed, also great for maths clubs. There are on-line versions, but you can still get the original card version (which we use) on Amazon. There are various levels of the game, we have most of them and use them all.
    You could start with 24 game and add more (there are masses out there) - fractions bingo, money games, etc. Kids enjoy it, it builds skills and is fairly stress free for you - an all round winner.

    Give the girls additional lessons.

    I ran a mums love maths club with the girls bringing their mums along. We played a variety of games and used maths problems to encourage problem solving. Sometimes think that girls performance comes from attitude at home and getting mums involved had great effect on raising standards.
