Tutpup for maths.. OK

One of the PGCE primary students I’m visiting this term had a new maths site in her planning as an extension activity. She was enthusiastic about it as it provided calculation practice using the four rules at different levels with the added bonus of competing against children all over the world. The name Tutpup was immediately familiar I’m sure I’d read about it only this week.

Looking through the obvious suspects in my reader I found it on the Kent Teachers blog which reassured me that it was safe, children don’t use their own name to compete.

Then yesterday morning it popped up on Ewan McIntosh’s edublogs. Have a look at these blogs .. they give a very clear view of the how and why and what and then try the games.
