Primary school maths resource provider, Matific, has launched its UK Maths Games competition for schools. The competition is open to all schools across the UK, following a previous successful run in Australia and the US.

Open to entries from all schools with students from reception to Year 6 students, the competition gives schools the chance to win more than £50,000 in cash and prizes, with the first prize being £1,000 cash and £2,000 worth of products. In addition to the school prize, participating classes have more than 20 chances to win prizes of up to £1,000.
