Christmas Maths Tasks for 5th and 6th Class

I’ve put together a selection of maths tasks for 5th and 6th class with a Christmas theme. The task cards mostly focus on number operations and money. Here is a sample task card below.

There are 3-5 questions per picture and the aim is to encourage children to work collaboratively using problem solving skills.┬áThese are ‘real life’ problems based on school and Christmas special offers on food and drink.

I use these types of questions in my class on a daily basis and I have found that their problem solving skills have improved a lot since September.
