Mathematics

Activities you could do with your child

 

Playing games, especially card games, dice games, dominoes or games involving counting in any form, such as Yahtzee, Monopoly, Ludo, Snakes and Ladders.

In addition, games that support memory, such as memory matching games (https://www.education.com/worksheets/memory-games/) or ‘I went to the shops and I bought…’ (https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/memory-time-fillers/i-went-to-the-shops...) can help to develop children’s retention skills.

For children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2, practice making and recalling pairs of numbers that make a given total, such as all the pairs of numbers that make 10, 8, 5 etc.

 

For children in Years 2 to 6, practice times tables.

Year 2: 2, 5 and 10 times tables

Year 3: 3, 4 and 8 times tables

Years 4 to 6: All tables up to 12 × 12
