Friday 1st May 2020 - Board game challenge
Get creative with what you have around the home to make your own board game. Make sure that you agree the rules of your game before you start to play and that you use your Maths skills to help to plan it out. Maybe you could even find a prize for the winner (or loser does the washing up!).
