It was really simple to implement in my class and fits in perfectly with my planning. As all the resources are sent to me it saves so much time.
I don't like maths normally but this made maths more fun
The children in my class who were working far below have so much more confidence from competing, working in a team and winning
Seeing the other classes on the smartboard makes me want to do better and go faster so we can win!
