We've done theme park maths, the children loved it. We've done lots of puzzles and challenges.
Looking for other ideas.

Our year 6 children are also loving theme park, as am I!

There is a murder mystery on here as well that looks good. Can't easily find the link, but if you are better at bypassing the nonsense that is the search engine then you will be able to find it well enough.

The Bank of England have some resources that are excellent (and tick the financial capability of ECM) and would keep your children occupied for a few weeks of maths lessons.

Pentominoes is a good investigative task.

Am I being especially thick here? I downloaded the Theme Park maths from the Primary resources website and it looks great. However, you create the theme park on squared paper and there were no teachers' note/ guidelines telling me how big the paper is allowed to be and how big the squares are. Or was there somewhere and I didn't see it?? Who knows? Can someone help me please? Thanks.

Not sure that is the same murder mystery one I have, but hey it looks just as good! I've emailed it to my year team colleague who is taking back his lower set soon.

Thank you for posting the links. I now feel mean for not having made the effort to do so, must try harder in future!

We just used A4 paper in cm squares because that is what we had. If you have different it really doesn't matter, any will do.

Have the murder mystery in my favourites and have used the Bank of England resources before so it was no trouble!
Don't feel guilty - it is Sunday evening!
