Maths Challenge

Times Rhymes KS2 Maths challenge November 2018

This term’s Maths Challenge is to make up a poem, song or rhyme to help remember just one of the times tables. Hand them in to your teacher, or straight to Mrs Burke. There will be a prize for the most original, funny or catchy in each year group.

My own example (to show you what to do) is below, but as always there are no strict rules. Be creative and catch the eye of the judges with something fresh and different (you could even get a parent to film you singing your song or reading your poem and send in the video or audio file to admin@cumwhinton.cumbria.sch.uk, it doesn't have to be written down).

Ten-times tea-time

1 x 10 = 10 … Tea time again.

2 x 10 = 20 … Cake to eat - plenty.

3 x 10 = 30 … I’m chocolate sauce - squirt me.

4 x 10 = 40 … Extra pudding - naughty!

5 x 10 = 50 … Custard on top - nifty!

6 x 10 = 60 … You sit down, I’ll fix tea.

7 x 10 = 70 … Clotted cream from Devon - tea.

8 x 10 = 80 … So good I can’t wait - tea.

9 x 10 = 90 … What a divine tea.

10 x 10 = 100 … 'When’s supper?' I wondered.

11 x 10 = 110 … Are you full then?

12 x 10 = 120 … Are you full or empty?

 

Please hand in your challenge before 30th November.
