Christmas Countdown

Christmas Holiday Countdown

We’re very excited to announce our Countdown to the Christmas Holidays! With only three weeks to go until Scottish schools start their Christmas holidays, we'll be sharing seasonal maths inspired activities every day from 1 to 20 December, to make the wait a little more fun.

Christmas Countdown

We'll be sharing the activities every day on our social media channel every morning on Twitter and on Facebook, as well as here on the website. You can look forward to a mix of puzzles, art and crafts, games, and more.

The activities will be for a mix of ages and will be most suitable for Early Years to Lower Secondary School, though older children may also enjoy taking part.
