Mental Warm-ups

A wide variety of Daily Routines for 10 minutes each day

  • This section includes Mental Warm-up activity files from across the website – all in the one place for easy access.
  • Eventually we plan to have examples from all 17 sub-strands of the primary maths curriculum. So it’s still a work in progress.
  • Although of relevance for classroom teachers, this page will also be helpful for the Mathematics Co-ordinators or the Maths Improvement Team at your school.
