Hi Anna,
I notice those trends in my classroom too. Mental maths games are similar to the PE, where after mixed games, the children used to always request boys versus girls. I used to entertain it as they were learning maths either way but as you say, there was always a winning and a losing side that reinforced a stereotype within the classroom. I now try to avoid any grouping aside from random grouping for any task.
