All of these learning opportunities were added while we were in lockdown, however they maybe useful to revisit with your children at any time. Happy learning!

Maths Home Learning Week 7 (18.5)


* The White Rose website has excellent activities. Follow the link below for a range of fantastic maths tasks that you can support your child with.


Maths Home Learning Week 5 and Week 6 (4.5 and 11.5)


*Compare size, weight and capacity. Encourage your child to use words like 'longer', 'shorter', 'heavier', 'lighter', 'full' and 'empty'. As a challenge, you could create opportunities for comparison.

*Go on a 2D and 3D shape hunt around the house and ask your child to describe their properties. Encourage them to use the correct language such as 'sides' and 'corners'.

*Build models or create patterns using junk modelling and discuss the shapes used. We have listed two useful websites below which support shape recognition and are fun.


Maths Home Learning Week 3 and Week 4 (20.4 and 27.4)


*Talk to your child about numbers that they see around the house or when you are out and about enjoying your daily exercise. It could be house numbers, car number plates etc. As a challenge, you could ask your child to identify the numbers and tell you what is one more/ one less than the ones they see.

*Use toys or other items to practise practical addition and subtraction. Demonstrate counting on (addition) and counting back (subtraction). Challenge your child to see if they can write the appropriate number sentence.


Maths Home Learning Week 1 and Week 2 (23.3 and 30.3)


*Create a number line up to 20 using different objects e.g. 1 banana, 2 shoes, 3 apples. Can your child recognise the numbers even when they are not in order?

*Play dice games with your child e.g. Snakes and Ladders.
