  • I will be using these for maths on Roald Dahl day. Have noticed a typo on the 2star version, challenge card 9 says 'Violent Beauregard' instead of Violet! Made me laugh but would be good to have the correct version :-)

A set of different maths challenge activities for children to use linked to Roald Dahl stories. They allow children to practise the four number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) using word problems.
