The Deputy First Minister’s Easter Holiday Maths Challenge has been designed in partnership with the Scottish Mathematical Council and is aimed at Primary 6 pupils for the Easter Holidays.
“It’s very much hoped that this will be a fun activity to promote maths outwith the classroom and ideally something that families can do together over the Easter holidays. The initiative is a feature of the Making Maths Count approach to making Scotland a maths-positive nation, and of the Scottish Government’s commitment to promoting parental engagement in learning.”

Packs of the resources will be issued to schools for Primary 6 pupils this week. A few additional have been included and they hope that teachers might identify p5 and/or p7 families who would also engage with it.
Workings and solutions will be available here – www.blogs.gov.scot/making-maths-count/ – from Wednesday 4 April 2018.
The Scottish Government are encouraging schools and families to tweet images of the activity with the hashtag #eastermaths and based on this plan to choose a school that will help them to design the Summer Holiday Maths Challenge. It would be very exciting if this was a Highland school!
