Information For Parents and Teachers



Camau Cyfri is part of a collection of Welsh language websites for children aged 5-7. Other resources for key stage 1 include:


Camau Cyfri is made up of three sets of interactive maths games designed to encourage strategic mathematical thinking and problem solving.

Follow Rabbit, Fox and Bird as they go in search of adventure in a magical world full of numbers and strange creatures.

Remember:
• the games get more difficult once you reach the fourth level
• the number of turns that win a gold medal vary from game to game.

Rabbit
These are number line activities where you make sure Rabbit lands on the tasty vegetables and avoids the monsters. Rabbit reads out the addition and subtraction calculations as he jumps backwards and forwards.

The mathematical concepts explored in this activity include:
• counting on and back
• addition and subtraction
• odd and even numbers
• multiples
• patterns and numbers sequences
• repeated addition and subtraction
• multiplication and division.

Fox
These games resemble counting activities in which children use objects like counters, beads or blocks to do number work. The aim of these games is to fill spaceships with the correct number of weird alien creatures called Wiblod.

The mathematical concepts explored in this activity include:
• counting on and back
• addition and subtraction
• odd and even numbers
• multiples
• doubling and halving
• multiplication and division.

Bird
These games resemble classroom activities where children use interlocking cubes to help them with their number work. The aim of these games is to guide strange creatures called Cogiaid to the treasure room. The Cogiaid have to be arranged so that the rectangles they form are the correct size and shape to move on to the next part of the activity.

The mathematical concepts explored in this activity include:
• counting on and back
• addition and subtraction
• odd and even numbers
• multiples
• doubling and halving
• multiplication and division.

There are two kinds of activities associated with each animal:

Games
The games contain defined tasks where children are asked to solve problems in as few turns as possible. A gold, silver or bronze prize is awarded depending on how many turns they take. Games can be played in any order. The tenth game in each level is locked and you have to win a gold prize in the other nine games in order to unlock it.

Explore activities
Open-ended tasks that give children the chance to explore and to learn problem solving skills.
