- Multiplication games.
This game is played by two people with a deck of cards with the jokers and face cards removed. Shuffle the deck and deal them all out face down. Each player flips over a card from his or her pile. The first player to call out the correct answer gets to collect two flipped over cards. If a player calls out the wrong answer the other player gets the cards. Players continue until all the cards have been flipped over. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end. If you do not have cards at home why not make your own ( 1 - 10 x 4).
Using a pair of dice, players take turns rolling the dice. As a player rolls the dice, they mentally multiply the two dice together. They can roll as many times as they like, mentally adding each new sum to the previous sum. When they decide they have done rolling, they write down the total on a piece of paper, adding it to any previous totals they had. If they roll a one, however, their total for that turn is zero, and their turn is over. If they roll two ones, their turn is over and their overall total in the game becomes zero. The game ends when one player reaches 100. If you do not have a dice you can find a template in the Home Learning category, copy the net to make your own.

Scottish Opera are hosting their first online opera for children - FEVER. Over the next 5 weeks, you can learn the whole thing!
There are 5 songs in the performance and each Monday, Scottish Opera will be posting a new set of activities to work through, song by song. They also have lyrics and teaching guides to help learn each song, videos that teach some moves, writing and science tasks to try and tips to make simple props and costumes.
- Read 'What's it all about?' on the website.
- Read 'Before you start' this will be a guide for props and characters.
