A magical numeracy game!

I have been recently been using the Magic Cauldron Game with some Key Stage One intervention groups and they have loved it! Its simple rules make it easy for all children to follow and it provides plenty of practise at simple mental calculations. The children really appreciated being able to check their own answers too, and the magical appearance of those answers (simply by rubbing the heat sensitive patches on the back of the cards) never failed to excite them. By covering the addition of two or three numbers, simple subtractions, and basic multiplications, the Magic Cauldron Game helps children learn without even realising it. It can also be played by removing some operation cards so that the focus can be placed on a certain type of calculation. All in all, very versatile and fantastic fun!
