Maths starter game (All colours)

Helicopter Rescue


Helicopter Rescue is a mental maths game with different sized number charts and it is designed to help you to identify and work with numbers up to 100. The game works well on an interactive whiteboard.

The game modes include ‘Find a Number’ and ‘Count On & Back’. In the first, you are asked to find a number on the grid, either directly or in between two voiced numbers. The count on and count back games are designed to help you learn some of the vocabulary of addition and subtraction; count on, count back, more than and less than.
