Brand new maths game – Measuring in centimetres

Another new free game for you to enjoy! We hope you love our latest, tablet-friendly maths game called Measuring in Centimetres. It’s designed for children aged 5 to 9, as an introduction to working with a ruler.

There are two levels to play – level 1 focuses only on whole number measuring, while level 2 includes a mix of whole- and half-centimetre examples.

Multiple choice answers are provided for each question, and the fully-randomised selection of stationery objects to measure makes the game highly re-playable!

The game is ideal for young learners to practise the method of aligning the ‘0’ at the beginning of the measuring scale, and not the end of the ruler itself.

PLUS, we’ve included a draggable slider at the other end of the scale which children can use to position at the end of the featured objects, to assist with reading off the correct measurement.

Like all our own Topmarks games, the screens are viewable in full-screen mode by clicking on the full-screen icon. It’s especially handy when playing on a tablet or when using the game on an interactive whiteboard. Clicking on the ‘full-screen icon’ again returns the screen to normal.

We hope you’ll make the most of this Measuring in Centimetres game with your children – start today!

Shape Monsters – new learning game

Fantastic for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) learners, Topmarks is excited to announce a new learning game. Helping young children recognise basic shapes, the Shape Monsters are here!

This brand-new interactive game, called Shape Monsters, is ideal for ages 2-5 to become familiar with and practised in sorting the four basic 2D shapes of circle, square, rectangle and triangle.

Each of the fun monsters can only ‘eat’ the shape that matches its own body shape, and audible reinforcements back up the child’s correct choices.

The Shape Monsters game lends itself well for use on an interactive whiteboard, and is also tablet-friendly, like all Topmarks’ own games, for every age group.

The characters have been designed to appear in random positions for each game, and the chosen shapes appear randomly too, avoiding repetition. This makes it fully re-playable!
