Further Maths activities

Here are some additional Maths activities, as always please feel free to choose the ones which you wish to do.

Monday: Revisit counting in 2s. Encourage your child to look at the 100 square (see link below for interactive 100 square) and paint all the numbers from 2 to 20 e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 etc. Highlight that these numbers are known as even numbers.

Paint the Squares;

Extension: There are 2 files below to help your child to practise counting on in steps of 2. 


Tuesday: Look at the Numberblocks PowerPoint together and practise adding two groups together using tens frames. 

Addition Game: You will need; 2 x tens frame, a dice, counters e.g. pasta/ buttons/ smarties.

Using the tens frame (you will need 2- see file below) practise adding two groups. Roll a die and count out that number of objects onto the frame, repeat rolling the dice and counting the objects out onto the second tens frame. Then combine the two groups to find the total; How many are there altogether? Repeat taking it in turns to play with a partner. Have 5 turns each. The challenge is to make the biggest total!


Wednesday: Collect a small group of objects, this could be a collection of small toys, coins, pieces of pasta, sweets or buttons etc. Model counting a small amount out and then taking some away e.g. I have 12 pieces of pasta, I take 5 away. How many do I have left? Repeat with other amounts up to 10 initially and then extend to 20. 

Extension: Complete Taking Away sheet (see files below).
