PLYT covers much of the KS1/2 Curriculum


PLYT can be used to cover the KS1/KS2 Curriculum as part of a fun game:-

  • Number Recognition and Counting, in ones, steps/multiples
  • Number Bonds - up to 20
  • Recognition of place value
  • Addition and Subtraction of single or multiple numbers
  • Multiplication up to 12
  • Mental Strategies
  • Commutative Law - swapping orders of numbers to be added/multiplied eg 5x7=7x5
  • Associative Law - numbers can be added/multiplied in different groupings eg 7x5x8 = 7x(5x8)
  • Distributive Law - solving problems involving multiplying & adding eg 6x108 = 6x100 +6x8
  • Mental calculations with increasingly large numbers, including mixed operations
  • BODMAS - using knowledge of the order of operations and using multi step operations
  • Factors - identifying multiples and factors of numbers
  • Fractions - multiply, add and subtract fractions




PLYT and the maths curriculum


PLYT is great for mixed ability classes

PLYT is Really Flexible


  • PLYT can be used in and across all years 1-6
  • PLYT can be tailored to fit the curriculum and the time available
  • Different levels of ability can compete at the same time - PLYT is not about being THE best at maths it's about being YOUR best.

Each player plays to their own individual standard, so you could have one player adding two dice, one practicing a specific times table and another simply multiplying 2 dice.  Each player will be challenged and each has the same chance of winning.  

This means that the less able mathematicians can win at a maths game - which is fantastic for building their confidence with numbers.  It also means that teachers can use one resource for the entire class and by deciding the standard, effectively tailors the game for each child.
