I absolutely love the BBC schools mental maths challenge show for lightening the mood when maths has got miserable. Yes it is probably too easy, but it is fun and confidence boosting. The whole bbc school radio site is brilliant imo...currently serialising private peaceful btw.
Here you are yamin...let him get full marks while his bruv is off elsewhere, and give him a boost!http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03g64ps
They are in year 6 Mystery.
THanks for the website Southbucks, looks great!
I did ds maths with him last night. I did it first, in the day (Loved it actually), then we sat together with a bag of maltesers, he had one for each question we worked through without fuss, which was all, as it happens, 12 complex word questions, all happily done, avoided just couple of what would have been needless mistakes, but all very positively diverted. Wish me luck that this works each week (we did it while bro wasnt here)
