Home Learning Activities—Maths

This week in school we have been looking at number and place value within 10.


Below is a list of activities for you to complete based on the work we have been completing in school. Follow the activities in order and try to complete one activity a day. Your activity sheets will be included in this pack. Once you have completed the work, please bring it back into school to show us your fabulous learning :)


Lesson 1— Ask children what ways they think objects can be sorted. Discuss the different ways. For example:  Colour, type, size, etc. Go through PowerPoint slides for Lesson 1.  As you go along slide by slide—ask questions such as: How can we sort the    objects? How else can we sort the objects? How have these objects been sorted? Can we sort the objects by colour? size? type? Can we make two groups from the set of objects? Can you make three groups from the set of objects?


Activity—Perform a hunt exploring as many different ways they can sort the same group of objects (e.g. sorted by colour, size and type).  See pictures on website for examples of how the activity could be carried out.


Lesson 2

Introduction—On a piece of paper ask you child to record numbers to 10 e.g. show me number 8, 4, 1, etc.. Go through lesson 3 slides. As you work through each slide—Ask question such as:
Can you count from 1 to 10?How many objects are there in total? Do you start from 0 or 1 when you count?
Can you show me 0 – 10 on your fingers?

Activity— Complete counting worksheet in your pack.



Lesson 3

Introduction — Your child  will progress from sorting objects to counting objects up to 10. They must count one at a time starting from one and realise the last number they count is the total number of objects. Your child will choose the best method of counting dependent on the context (for example, moving objects to one side as they count, crossing objects off). Go through powerpoint slides—lesson 4
Ask question such as: Can you count from 1 to 10? How many objects are there in total? Do you start from 0 or 1 when you count? Can you show me 0 – 10 on your fingers?


Activity— Complete worksheet


Lesson 4

Introduction Tell your child that you are going to listen to you count to 10 and beyond.. Did I count correctly? Why not etc... What does zero look like? Can you show me zero with your fingers? Is it easier to count objects in a line? Why?

Explain to your child that when you count the things in a set, always start from 1. The last number you say is the total number of things in the set. Model how to count items incorrectly/correctly. What was my mistake? What did I do correct? Remind your child about moving their finger in time or crossing off etc..


Activity— Complete worksheet (see worksheet in your workpack)


Lesson 5

Introduction— Put a number within 10 on a piece of paper. Ask your child to draw a matching picture representation on their piece of paper.  Repeat with different numbers to 10.
