Week 2 – Treasure Hunt

Week 2 – Treasure Hunt

The Maths Mates have got hold of a treasure map, and they’re off to find some treasure!

Time Turtle has been on the ship a very long time and he can’t remember the word that means how long it has been.

Follow the clues and collect the letter treasure to help him remember what that word was.

During this activity you will be:

  • Problem solving
  • Using addition + multiplication
  • Sorting into pairs; identifying odd + even numbers
  • Looking at symmetry + shape
  • Exploring fractions
  • Learning about place value

Parents/Carers – the activities in this treasure hunt are suitable for a range of ages. Be guided by your children, let them explore ideas, take the maths further, or come up with a related activity!

First, download the Treasure Hunt Instructions sheet (below) and prepare the treasure hunt without any children watching!
