Mathematics

  • Practise counting reliably with numbers from one to 20. Place the numbers in the correct order and say the number which is 1 less / 1 more than a given number. Count forwards and backwards along your number line. If you are confident with numbers from 1 to 20, then make a track that goes up to 30, 40 etc. 
  • Look at a group of objects and estimate how many there are before you count. Once you have estimated then count to see if you were correct. Did you estimate too many or too few? Was your estimate correct?
  • Use different objects around your house to practise your addition and subtraction skills. Use the range of vocabulary for these calculations. Can you write a number sentence to show your calculation?
  • Continue to solve number problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
  • Please view the posters below which show the range of vocabulary we have been using already in Reception class for addition, subtraction and equals. There is also multiplication and division vocabulary which  you will be working on in KS1. In practical activities around your home, try using the range of vocabulary.
  • Practise the correct formation of numbers. Look at the poster below to remind yourself of how to form each number correctly.
  • Explore the different shapes you see around your house, garden and local area. Can you name the different 2D and 3D shapes? Can you talk about their properties with your adult?
  • Click on the shape posters below. Can you name these shapes? Can you find these shapes around your home?
  • Use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity and position.
  • Keep practising the work we have been doing on time i.e. note the time that you get up, have your dinner, play outside, have a bath etc. Say the name of each day and month.
  • Use everyday language to discuss money. Ask your adult to show you different coins and discuss what you notice. Add together the value of coins up to 10p i.e. a 5p and a 2p, how much is that altogether?
