    The BEAM websitr has problems on there that often stretch the highers. ALso have you looked on the nrich website.
    I have also just done a maths week and some children researched Wac?aw Franciszek Sierpi?ski ( see

    https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/25271 for some info)
    One of the thinks he is famous for is Fractals - this can be simple or you can extend it to really push the children
    These have bits of info

  2. Thank for your reply, I will deifinitely look at the links you have sent :)
  3. Shape's a good one for challenging highers, set investigations and challenges, such as create a pentagon containing 2 right angles or concentrate on angles such as total of angles on a straight line and reflex angles. As a real extension, you could look at angles on 3d irregular shapes and get them to predict using 2d shape knowledge. Have fun!
  4. hi - you could take a look at the 'yr 5 challenge cards' - among the free worksheets on our website - go to www.mathswarriors.co.uk - hope this is useful - perhaps also have a look at the 'number placement' problems too
  5. if you stray towards serpinski, have a look at cynthia lanus' website wrt fractals
  6. Hi
    NRICH has lots of activities suitable for highly achieving children. This month we have lots of enrichment stuff on codes and ciphers http://nrich.maths.org/thismonth and if you want even more challenging ideas look at the suite of pages on 'low threshold high ceiling' tasks which are suitable for most children but have an extra punch for those who can cope. http://nrich.maths.org/7701
    If you follow us on Twitter hash nrich you can have sneak previews of new content.
    Love to hear your views!
