    i teach small groups of students together. Does anyone know of any Maths games that I could play with 3 or 4 primary aged students. Year 3-6?

    Are you thinking board games, paper games, talking games or computer based games ?

    For mental games, "Fizz, Buzz" is good for times tables.
    The rules are here : http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/fizz-buzz.html
    He also has others : http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/index.html

    For paper games, how about pentominoes ?

    For computer games, have a look at the links page at http://www.scruffs.shetland.co.uk/indexmm.html

    The Association of Teachers of Mathematics has many publications which may help:

    Hope this helps!

    I like that one Colin. You could also use cubes / counters to cover up the numbers hit rather than shading them in if you wanted to just print 1 board that would last rather than 1 board for every time you played.

    10 Ticks has got quite a few good games......................I find the BIDMAS 4 in a row game is hugely popular!

    Try these dice games from NRich, complete with rationale.
