Candy Cane Races, a Christmas maths game!

The aim of the game is to be the first to reach the candy cane treasure! To get there, you need to do a little bit of Christmas maths. Pick a question – opt for an easy one and you can dig down one space, choose a trickier one and you can dig more spaces!

We’ve included a range of questions in the pack so you can choose which are suitable for your child’s ability.

Candy cane races is based on our popular Miner Birds series; they are all great maths games to encourage children to enjoy maths! With levels to suit all ages from 3 up to 11, children can practise specific math skills: addition and subtraction, times tables, fractions, or a combination of them all in our classic Miner Birds and special Christmas edition games.

The Christmas edition of Miner Birds will be FREE TO PLAY on this week too! Keep reading for details.
