    Hi olipage, I posted something on this a while back but cannot find it - sorry!
    In essence, get the children outside and standing along a number line (use laminated A4 cards folded in half to mark out every 10 metres, or chalk to mark out every unit - it depends on whether you are on grass, in gym, playground etc.
    Get them to stand anywhere they like, then ask them to run to, for example:
    The nearest multiple of 10;
    10 more than their current number;
    One less than their current number;
    Half their current number (differentiation).
    Hope some of this is suitable. Good Luck.
  2. Thanks for your replies, I'll have a go at some of these. Would love to get them outside however space is restricted as there are 3 Yr 3 classes in my school and 60 children can't go outside at once
    Thanks once again
