Happy, happy maths day

Please complete the Flashback 4 as normal and then do some active counting in 10s, start at 0 and up to at least 120 (as they will need to know times tables to x12). Count in 10s whilst doing star jumps, jogging on the spot, squats, lunges whatever keeps them active. 

Complete the sheet, encouraging your child to count in 10s rather than counting them individually. Don't forget to share any work completed - they can still earn dojos. 


Wednesday 22nd Maths

Active Maths Today

The children are to be bunnies - they need their floppy ears and bouncing feet.

Hide the numbers 0-10 around the garden, tell your child they must find the numbers and hop like a bunny two times the number found i.e. if they find a 3 they must hop 2 lots of 3 - please use the words lots of as this leads onto multiplication which we are building up to. Get them to shout back 2 lots of ... and do the action. Repeat till they have done all the numbers - do they notice that two lots of ... is the same as double...?  If not ask them what double their number is, then what is two lots of their number? They can bunny jump their answers to check.

Happy Hopping! 

Monday 20th April & Tuesday 21st

We are starting with doubles, the National Curriculum states that in Year 1 all children must be able to recall all doubles to at least 10 (up to 10+10).

Activity 1

The attached worksheet - it is important that they see doubles in different ways. 

Activity 2

Write the numbers 0-10 on individual scraps of paper and hide them around the garden or house - keep them active - they must find a number, bring it back, write it down and work out its double. Example: If they find the number 5 they write Double 5 = 10. They are allowed to draw circles/dots/dashes or use loose parts i.e. pasta/stones/counters to help at first, You could do this activity twice to see if they remember any the 2nd time round. 

These activities can be done in any order. Have fun, 

Friday 24th April


For Space, Shape and Measures work this term, Y1 are starting with capacity – how much liquid a container can hold. 


To begin, have a look through the Capacity and Volume document (below - use the Powerpoint version if you can) with your child.  For many children, this will be a gentle recap of Reception vocabulary. 


Now have a go at the worksheet (below).


If your child would like to do more capacity maths, they could do the household item hunt that Y2s are trying (see Y2 section).  Y1 children don’t need to worry about the number of litres or millilitres, but could look for different items in the house that hold liquid and try to order them from smallest to  biggest.
