Weekly Wonders in Maths
Weekly Wonders in Maths: the Cambs Maths Team have produced some weekly themed challenges, with answers, which all children can try during the summer holidays.
The challenges are based on topical themes each week of the summer holiday with three versions available and are aimed at Key Stage 1, lower Key Stage 2 and upper Key Stage 2.
You can download the questions and answers at the bottom of this page.
