Ideal for young learners aged 4-10, the game features three activities – Sorting, Ordering and Counting, all perfect for practising coin values. Each has varying levels of difficulty to aid progression.

The first activity is Sorting, which has two different modes. This is particularly useful for very young children and it is a more convenient alternative to using plastic money in a class situation.

Ordering is the next activity, which helps pupils arrange the coins in value order, from lowest to highest. Again, there are two difficulty modes, or three in the case of the Euro currency.

Finally, in the Counting activity, children are asked to count money amounts on a fun piggy bank. There are eight menu options which enables teachers to pitch the activity at the appropriate level.

In the easier levels, children are required to continue the simple pattern, but as the levels become more challenging, more colours and shapes are added, and the missing element in the sequence is in different positions.

Rocket Rounding – head to the launchpad of a new game!

It’s time for another new learning game from Topmarks… Not only did we release Mental Maths Train a few days ago, but by popular demand, now here’s our Rocket Rounding game too. 3…2…1…Lift off!

Rocket Rounding is a multiple-choice maths game which focuses on rounding numbers to tens, hundreds and whole numbers. It is aimed at
7 to 11 year old children.

It’s designed with two alternative game modes, helping with progression and differentiating for children of mixed abilities.

The first mode features a counting number line, which provides an excellent introduction to the concept of rounding either up or down. This mode provides a useful teaching aid on an interactive whiteboard.

For each mode, there are six levels, progressing from rounding “Up to 99 to the Nearest 10” to “Up to 9.9 to the Nearest Whole Number”. And children will love the rewarding visuals!

New game to play! Mental Maths Train

Topmarks is excited to add a new game to our growing collection of learning resources – this one is called Mental Maths Train.

This new interactive game is designed for 5-11 year olds to practise numeracy skills of the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – specifically focussing on the varied vocabulary around the calculations.

It’s important for pupils to recognise the different language used for expressing the same maths functions, such as take away, reduce and subtract, all within the subtraction operation.

Since Mental Maths Train is fully randomised, you’ll find it’s versatile and highly re-playable! Not least with the wide range of levels within each operation offering excellent progression opportunities.
