Maths Activities - Reinforce Understanding +

It is the combination of large text, clear voice-over, colourful graphics, visual and audible reinforcement and fun music that makes EducationCity’s mathematics Activities appeal to all learners. From reward-based games at the fair in Bumper Cars to rounding up numbers in Rabbit Roundup, students can immerse themselves in EducationCity and learn in a fun way.

  • Great for formative assessment, Activities typically include 10 questions per topic.
  • Include sing-along songs, popular with the very youngest academic levels and more recently, Times Tables Songs, which provide a fun and engaging way to learn multiplication facts.
  • Scores are saved into our in-built progress tracker which can provide teachers with a comprehensive student report at the end of the year or term.
  • Activities are supported by peripheral content including Teacher Notes, Lesson Ideas, Learn Screens, which are mini-tutorials to help students gain an insight or an overview of new mathematics topics, and printable Activity Sheets to give students something to work on independently in or after the lesson.

Times Table Songs - Support Learning and Recall +

A subgroup of our Activities, our newly developed Times Tables Songs, bring multiplication to life. With their easy-to-remember lyrics and tunes, they make times tables interesting for students and improve recall skills.

Learn Screens - Introduce or Reinforce New Concepts +

  • Students are introduced to new mathematical concepts and processes via Learn Screens. These can often be followed up by playing an Activity that relates to them.
  • These can be used either by the students with teacher guidance or independently.

Mathematics Tests - Identify Strengths and Weaknesses +

  • Mathematics Tests linked to both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 mathematics curricula.
  • They are great for SATs practice and proven to raise attainment (Bradford Study).
  • Suitable for summative and diagnostic assessment, each test is scored against the National Curriculum criteria and saved.
  • Bespoke MyRevision Journals are generated for each student to help them address any areas they are weak in. 

Topic Tools - Explore Concepts as a Class +

  • Topic Tools are open-ended tools for use by teachers on interactive whiteboards covering topics from Multiplication and Charts to counting Money and using a Number Line.
  • Tools offer teachers the freedom to explore a topic at a level and pace perfectly suited to their students.
  • The tools default to the difficulty level appropriate for the academic level they are accessed from and can be pre-prepared for later use using our Save and Open feature.
  • 'Random' buttons within tools allow teachers to generate random scenarios or data, saving teachers time and facilitating teacher-led questioning.

NEW! PlayLive Maths - Interactive Mental Maths Challenge +

  • PlayLive Maths is a competitive mental mathematics challenge, which pits students from the same year group in a race to answer as many questions as they can in 60 seconds.
  • Choose between questions on multiplication, addition, subtraction and division.
  • Competition is further enhanced with options to compete against your class, school or even country.
  • Now available for use on tablet devices.
  • PlayLive is also available in English/Literacy, French and Spanish.

Student Tools - Encourage Individual Learning +

  • Student Tools, including our programming tool, Code Crunch, are open-ended virtual manipulatives designed to let children create and explore.
  • They cover the parts of the curriculum where freedom of expression, exploration and outcome are integral to the learning goal.
  • Work carried out within Student Tools is student-led and self-differentiated.
  • Students are able to obtain records of the work they create via print and download features.
