DD1's maths homework at the moment is all about memorising key maths facts. So last week we had number bonds, this week it's doubles. She's also starting on times tables.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a fun website that she can play on to help her remember. She's a very visual learner and I think some sort of game will help.

I know about Rainforest Maths, but have just discovered it's been temporarily taken down - don't know how long for.

I used this one all the time with my Y2s last year; all the Y2 objectives are covered and there are def a couple of nice doubles games, I know.

This sounds like a good idea, thank you!

ds's school pays for the subscription but I think you can get a free months trial
it's brilliant

Wow - what a great response. Thanks everyone!

Now I will see if I can persuade DD to play computer games as part of her homework. Hmmm - don't think that will be too hard grin

One of cat64s links ( had an advert for this, which I've just downloaded and tried out Timez Attack - free version teaches all the times tables from 2s to 12s... paid for version gives you more worlds to explore. It looks awesome - it's a proper game not just a flash doobrey.

If ds1 likes it, I'm seriously considering buying the full version, just to support them giving it out for free.
