TES Resources is working to raise standards in education through hosting free teaching resources and sharing best practice online. One such resource is TES iboard.
TES iboard activities are highly visual, open-ended, interactive resources, all available free online at www.tes.co.uk/tes-iboard. They are powerful teaching tools that are ideal for teachers and assistants to introduce and explore key concepts but are also simple enough for pupils to use independently. Over 550 activities are available, covering KS1 objectives, to stimulate active learning conversations with your pupils.

“JUST BRILLIANT - the more I play, the more potential I see here for so many concepts at so many stages of numeracy development”
– feedback posted on the iboard website.
This KS1 numeracy activity is an easy-to-use tool to support the teaching of many different number concepts and for incorporating variation into lessons. It can be used in the same way as a traditional paper number square but with extra interactive features. The square can be customised to support more closely your learning intentions, by choosing the start number, the number of steps to go up in and the total size of the square.
Once set to suit your lesson, you can hide and reveal various numbers and use the paintbrush colours to highlight. The possibilities are endless. Start a number sequence and ask children to continue it, set them challenges to work out hidden numbers, look at numbers in the times tables, work out rules.
