    I just wondered if people had any engaging ideas for activities, games, art, practical maths for learning or applying times tables suitable for Year 6 please.

    Tarsia puzzles - download for you to make or challenge the children to make their own and then race against the clock to complete.

    I like www.myimaths.com

    I've also been using some one-minute mental maths tests

    Thank you for the reference to Tarsia Puzzles. Never known I could make them myself before.
    Going to be fabulous for both my year 3 and year 8 maths groups.

    Sign up for Times Table Rockstars - 3 minute tests, 50 questions, at the start of every lesson. That will then give you at least 30 minutes to teach something else.

    Or as they are Year 6 jump straight in with a blank times table square - 12 X 12 - 144 questions in 10 minutes. For the more able the challenge is to get them all right in as quick a time as possible.

    We do tables squares every week with year 3 upwards. Easy to make and differentiate. My classes currently have a 10x8 square, so 80 questions and have about 5 mins to do as many as they can.
    We don't, any more, have 1, 2, 5, 10 x tables on the regular square as they aren't something most children need to work on. A few have them, but almost all have decimals too.
