Key Stage



Years 4-6


Just under six years ago, Pokemon Go took the world by storm, exciting millions of children and adults alike.

Over the summer of 2016 I must say I became a little obsessed myself; though I never did manage to ‘catch ‘em all’.

At the time of the game’s takeover, I was undergoing my second PGCE placement, and a few tired months later I realised the potential to use this phenomenon to my advantage and engage my class in a maths topic that can otherwise be a little bit prescriptive and boring.

Behold, ‘scan ‘em all’ was born!
