Deputy First Minister’s Easter Holiday Maths Challenge


The Deputy First Minister’s Easter Holiday Maths Challenge has been designed in partnership with the Scottish Mathematical Council and is aimed at Primary 6 pupils for the Easter Holidays.

“It’s very much hoped that this will be a fun activity to promote maths outwith the classroom and ideally something that families can do together over the Easter holidays.  The initiative is a feature of the Making Maths Count approach to making Scotland a maths-positive nation, and of the Scottish Government’s commitment to promoting parental engagement in learning.”

Packs of the resources will be issued to schools for Primary 6 pupils this week. A few additional have been included and they hope that teachers might identify p5 and/or p7 families who would also engage with it.

Workings and solutions will be available here – – from Wednesday 4 April 2018.
