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. These 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.
