The Times Tables Whodunnit Puzzles - Learning tables and fun all rolled into one!

Are you looking for a different way to motivate your children to learn their tables? Would you like to find an exciting new resource that will encourage your children to master this key area of learning? Well, why not try our new Times Tables Whodunnit Puzzles?!

Set in the “Old West”, your children complete three tasks in order to eliminate suspects from their “Wanted Poster”. Then they can work out which of the colourful characters committed a crime. Who was it? Missy O’Malley?! Texas Thompson?! Pancho El Bandido?!

There are twelve crimes to crack, and once the child has solved several of them they can find out who the biggest baddy or craftiest criminal in the “Old West” is!  All they need to do is cut out the guilty party from each wanted poster and stick them on the criminal sheet.   You can choose whether the child has to complete 4, 6 or 12 puzzles - fabulous for flexible planning and intense periods of revision.

Each of the puzzles can be solved using one of four times tables. This means that you can decide how you want to use the puzzles. Perhaps you need to revise the sixes, sevens and eights in Year Six, or you want to boost an individual child on their twos, fives and tens… No problem, the choice is yours! And since these puzzles look the same, a child working on the tens appears to be doing the same work as a child revising their twelves – what a great way to motivate children who are struggling!

Similar in style to our hugely popular Times Tables Puzzles Compendium, which is used in schools the length and breadth of the country, the puzzles have all been devised by an outstanding leading maths teacher who really knows how to motivate children. They are colourful and packed full of cartoons to make sure your children are really motivated to learn their tables… and since there is an answer to each puzzle, they require NO MARKING! If the child gets the right answer, they must have got their tables correct!  


Provided in easy to print PDF format, there are 12 challenges in the Whodunnits, meaning that you can use the puzzles throughout the school - an unlimited site licence is provided for ONLY £50. They are ideal for homework, whole class, group work or individual interventions – any time you want your children to enjoy practising their tables!
