Games and activities

Great online games and recipes that older children could use to practice maths concepts and revise bread making processes

– This is a shape matching game that you could use to talk about shape names and colours.

Link 2 – This is also a matching game but with farmyard animals the pictures are realistic but there are perhaps a little too many choices for younger children to remember.

Link 3 – Here is another silly game. A chicken lays eggs and moves along the perch you have to move the box underneath and catch the falling eggs simple!
