From the series Great Lesson Ideas, this Teachers TV video shows how calculation games are used to make multiplication and addition fun at Eleanor Palmer School in Camden, North London.

Year Three students play a game called Four rolls to a hundred . Organised into teams, they roll a die and decide whether or not they should multiply their number to ensure their final number is the closest to a hundred.

The Code breaking game challenges Year Six students to establish the value of a word table, having been given the numerical value of just some of the letters.

In the Year One lesson, the students practise their counting-on skills in a simple but fun dice game called Bird race.
