Literacy

I would like you to make a list of words that are the opposite of each other. For example, short is the opposite of tall. Night is the opposite of day. Try to make as long a list as possible.

If you’ve got some spare time you could always try and use your list of words to make a game for young children to play. Maybe you could make a card game where they have to match the cards that are opposites of each other.

Numeracy

Below is a selection of times table searches. They work in the same way as wordsearches, but they are about times tables. Each grid is related to the incomplete multiplication table below it. Complete the multiplication table, find each statement of the table in the grid and draw a line around it, then tick it off in the table. The statement may run up and down, across or diagonally and me by read in any direction. Any number or symbol in the grid may be used more than once in different statements.
