Please find below lots of different ideas to continue practising maths skills. 



When at school we practise our counting every day. We count in 10s, 5s, 2s and 1s as well as counting backwards. Can you show your grown up how fantastic you are at counting out loud! 


The maths factor is a fantastic online resource which practises different number skills. This is part of ActiveLearn which you should have received login details for. If you need any help please let us know. www.activelearnprimary.co.uk


NUMBOTS (linked to TTRockstars) is a fantastic website which helps children practise their understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction. All children start at the same place in Story Mode, and when they get to a certain stage they unlock challenge modes. You should have received the login details but if you are having any difficulties please let us know.


White Rose Maths has released some free home learning lessons with an egg hunt theme to support the learning of maths at home. 

Maths Games

Shape Patterns - please click the picture to be redirected to a great game which encourages children to practise recognising different patterns and shapes.

Can you pick one of these 2d shape pictures and use the correct colours to colour in? 


Can you create a target board and roll pom poms/marbles or any other small spherical objects. Who got the biggest total? Can you use your 10s, 5s, 2s and 1s to help you count quicker?

As Jack and the Beanstalk is our new topic can you use Jelly Beans or other sweeties and sort them into their colours! Which colour has the most? Which colour has the least? How many more red jelly beans is there than yellow?

I bet the Giant has huge feet! Can you draw around your feet and maybe your grown ups too? Put them in size order, who has the biggest, smallest? Could you use cubes or another object to measure how long the feet are. 

Can you complete the magic bean pattern?

w/c 27.4.20

Start with 10 sweets and roll a dice (or an online version). Eat how many sweets it says on the dice - how many are left? Could you write it down? 

Each week we will add a new number to focus on. At school we looked closely at 1- 10 so we will now look at teen numbers including how they are represented, written etc. Please find below some activities.

w/c 4.5.20

Handa had lots of different fruit in her basket. Can you design and make your own repeating pattern fruit kebab?

w/c 11.5.20

In the story Handa comes across two fluttery butterflies! Butterflies are very special because their wings are symmetrical which means they have exactly the same pattern on both sides!

Can you complete or make your own symmetrical butterfly?


As we know spiders have 8 legs, 4 on each side. Can you sort spiders into doubles and not doubles? Some of our spiders have been losing their legs! Tell us the amount of legs and the double they are.

w/c 18.5.20

Can you match the spider number bonds to 10?

w/c 1.6.20

Choose 6 of your toys, cars, dolls, boats - all different ones. Can you sort them into an order - smallest to biggest? How do you know? Can you measure them in bricks? Or with a ruler?
