Maths Playground Markings Activities
Make maths outside the classroom meaningful and stimulating, with 30 challenging playground activities.
Devised, tried and tested by our maths expert Steve Humble (aka Dr Maths), children will be actively engaged by these games.
Each activity can be simply drawn on the playground with chalk. However, you might want to make some of the frameworks a permanent fixture with playground paint, once you find those that both you and the children will want to use again and again! The activities can be used throughout KS1 and KS2 – we’ve included suggestions on how to make the tasks easier or harder. Used with either small groups or the whole class, they provide opportunities for problem solving and discussion around key concepts such as number, shape and space, measures, and data handling.
