In the Summer Term, children are learning to recognise, name and order numbers one to twenty. Practise counting to twenty daily and practise ordering your cards that you made last term.
Here are the Maths activities for this week:
A) Have a go at making missing number tracks like the one below, support your child to count on and back to find which number is missing. You can do this with numbers between 1 and 10 and 11 and 20.
B) Practise counting between one and fifteen with this interactive Teddy game on Top Marks. You can start with numbers up to five and work your way up to ten and then fifteen.
C) Number formation is important for the next stage of children's learning in Year One. Writing the number in correctly can mean that their answers as read as being incorrect. Commonly children can get 2 and 5 muddled, 6 and 9, 1 and 7. Practise writing numbers from one to twenty and support your child to write the numbers in the correct way. Watch this video to support their understanding.
D) Understanding the value of numbers is crucial for children's mathematical development. In school we use ten frames to help children match number to quantity and understand the value of numbers. Have a go at asking your child to use this interactive ten frame to show their understanding of the value of numbers. For example, ask your child to show 8 on the tens frame- they can then select 8 counters to put onto the ten frame as shown below. You can add an extra ten frame to work with numbers up to 20.
