A number facts game where children have to work out the Maths sum to free the funky mummy! A great game to practise basic adding skills.
A game where children have to match the pipes using number bonds to 10 in order to free the whale! It can also be changed to bonds for 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. A great game to practise these number bonds which support other mathematical learning.
