Want to learn about time, this is a site my children love to use. It goes through step by step how to tell time, getting steadily trickier. Of course the various creatures that appear, add to the fun.

## The Magic Monkey.

This is a fantastic little maths brain teaser, that can be used in different ways throughout Keystage 1 and 2

Click the picture above to go to the website.

The Magic Monkey takes you through a series of maths problems before showing the symbol that matches your final number.

In year two we have used it to look at what a 2 digit number is, for addition problem solving and subtraction and for number recognition. It is amazing the ideas that the children have on how the Magic Monkey manages to get the symbol right each time. We have had to whisper, write down our numbers and even shout red herring numbers to try and trick our magic friend.

A colleague in Year 5 and 6 has used this as a challenge to his children, to try and work out how the Magic Monkey solves the problem each time.
