Since it will be the Easter weekend soon I thought it would be nice to find some fun, Easter themed, where possible puzzly type maths pages for the kids. In past years when the kids where younger I found a number of great Easter Maths activities on Twinkl (they have a lot for Key Stage 1 ages – that cheeky Easter bunny ) so I thought I would start there and see what I can find for slightly older years.
When I started searching, I immediately went to their Maths Mystery sets to see if they had any interesting looking Easter ones (we are huge fans of the Maths Mystery series). I found a few and checked to see if any were revising the Maths activities that I specifically had in mind – and I found two that ticked the right boxes for us.
The Mystery of the Easter Bunny Costume – looked like it would be good for general lower key stage 2 practice.
And the Mystery of the Contaminated Chocolate included simple solving for x and some coordinates which where two things I was wanting to practice if possible.
I also remembered I had once printed off a code breaking page to do with simplifying factions and we have recently covered that with my youngest so I searched for Easter simplifying fractions and found it – Easter Code Breaking Simplifying fractions (both of mine always enjoy working out some wort of coded message)
I also found a colour by simplifying fractions page, which they took me on a quick colour by worksheet search and I spotted some colour by division pages and a colour by sum Easter egg page in their Secondary section – which had negative numbers included.
We have also recently revised coordinates so I thought some Easter coordinate pages would be good. I found a bunch – Egg in one quadrant, Easter pictures in four quadrants that all looked interested but I really wanted something that includes translations and I found this one – Easter Coordinates with translations.
And finally I know this is not a Maths page but while I was searching the Secondary section I spotted this Easter Egg Hunt page where the kids need to name the countries and I am 100% slipping this page in so here is the link – Atlas Easter Egg Hunt
