Combine design and technology with maths and English at KS1 and KS2, by getting children to make their own hexaflexagon - a tactile study tool that can be folded and turned inside out to reveal three different faces.
The resource pack includes hexaflexagon templates, a video you can show the class with step-by-step instructions, and maths and English resources for KS1 and KS2 that can be added to the hexaflexagons to turn them into fun and effective revision tools for the classroom and at home.
The hexaflexagon templates cover the following areas
- Times tables: the first 12 multiples of 1-12
- Number bonds: addition of two numbers less than 10
- Sentence starters
- Editing reminders
