Festive Maths Presentations


A musical start on the advent calendar. Then click on the date to go to the question. Each presentation contains 24 nice graphics with a total of 12 sounds. Toggle back and forth for more than one question if you wish.
There are four editable and differentiated Advent Calendar presentations with questions ranging in difficulty from level 2 to grade A*. The questions test mental arithmetic as well as maths skills and knowledge.
Guidance on using the Festive Presentations.
Please bear in mind the following when purchasing:
• The questions are designed to be done mentally and calculators should not be used.
• The 24 questions range in difficulty from level 2/3 at the beginning of block (a) to grade A/A* towards the end of block (d)
• There are some easier questions scattered throughout the blocks so that everyone has a chance to get at least some correct.
• Because the questions test maths skills and knowledge as well as mental arithmetic it might be that a very bright primary student with sharp mental arithmetic skills may be able to answer a few of the questions in block (d) but would obviously not be able to answer questions on such things as irrational numbers, negative indices and trigonometry etc.
Bearing in mind the above, as a very rough guide for all presentations in the festive area the suitability is as follows:
Block (a) Questions at the start are appropriate for some young primary school children including Key Stage 1 and average ability primary students at Key Stage 2 towards the end of the block. They are also suitable for SEN and low ability students at secondary school.
Block (b) Able/very able groups in primary schools /a spread of middle groups at Key Stage 3 and 4 at secondary.
Block (c) Some middle and higher sets at secondary school at both Key Stage 3 and 4
Block (d) Top sets and some good middle sets at Key Stage 4.
Overseas Teachers
Bearing in mind the above, as a very rough guide for all presentations in the festive area the suitability is as follows:
Block (a) Suitable for a range of students from age 7 to11.
Block (b) Suitable for a range of students from age 9 to15
Block (c) Suitable for a range of students from age 11 to15.
