‘Pharaoh’s Time Mystery’ is a whole-class resource designed to get children involved in the outcome of the story.

Some screens contain story information – you can click the arrow in the bottom-right-hand corner to progress. However, other screens contain maths puzzles. In order to progress, you will need to click on the correct answer from the underlined choices. A correct answer will lead you to the next part of the story – but an incorrect answer will result in a sticky end for the Riddle children!

Note: make sure to only click the arrows or multiple-choice answers. Clicking on other parts of the screen will take you to the next screen in the resource, regardless of your answer choice.

    Absolute Fun

    What a wonderful resource! I'm most definitely going to be using it in school. It's not often that you get something that wraps a subject (and one as tricky as maths) into such a fun package. Great stuff - I hope there will be more!
