New games and activities added to Primary MyMaths

We know that many children enjoy playing MyMaths games, so we’re delighted to announce that four new ‘colour by numbers’ games have been added to Primary MyMaths.

These games focus on core addition and subtraction objectives from the Key Stage 1 curriculum.

In Colour by numbers: adding within 10 and Colour by numbers: subtracting within 10, children practise working out or recalling addition and subtraction facts within 10.

In Colour by numbers: adding within 100 and Colour by numbers: subtracting within 100, children practise working out calculations within 100 using a range of strategies.

The games feature fun new designs to encourage children to play them again and again, developing their fluency and consolidating these important skills.
