Hi Guys! Hope you enjoy this simple game to develop understanding of number bonds and addition! 😊

Here is a little idea for some practical maths either in the sun or maybe in the bath!

Maths Shed- Maths PowerPoints

These Maths Shed PowerPoints will be great to download and work through with your children. They are designed to support teaching a variety of Maths skills in a fun and interactive way. Many of the activities are designed to be done in the classroom but can be easily adapted to use at home, have a go at working through a few slides each day. I hope that you find them useful!

Addition and Subtraction (Introducing Zero)                                 Addition & Subtraction to 5

Number & Place Value (6, 7 & 8)                                 Number & Place Value (Counting to 9 & 10)

Number & Place Value- Comparing Groups               Addition & Subtraction to 10 (Combining 2 groups)

Number Bonds:

Lots of you have been asking for some resources to support teaching number bonds to 10. Hopefully you will find the PowerPoints above useful but here are some quick and easy printables that will also help to embed this concept. Hope that you find them useful and enjoy using them! I have also included some bonds to 20 if anybody feels that their child needs an additional challenge!

Shape, Space & Measure Activities:

Time: Why not use this time at home to investigate telling the time? You can have loads of fun with time-related activities, how about starting off by making your own clock? Have a go at making your own by printing out one of our handy templates below!

Shape: There are shapes all around us, both 2D and 3D! Why not spend this time investigating how 2D shapes can form nets that turn into 3D shapes. You could also have a shape hunt around your house and garden! I wonder how many different shapes you can find?

The ‘Shape Patterns‘ game is a great way to reinforce shape and pattern understanding. It is excellent for shape recognition and for problem solving. In the easier levels children need to continue the pattern but in the more challenging levels, children are presented with a sequence with the missing element in different positions. This level in particular, is an excellent problem solving activity. Have fun!

 

Have a look at these great games on Top Marks to practice your maths skills! Click the titles to take you to the website!

 

Helicopter Rescue: This is a mental maths game with different sized number charts and it is designed to help children to identify and work with numbers up to 100. The game modes include ‘Find a Number’ and ‘Count On & Back’. In the first, children are asked to find a number on the grid, either directly or in between two voiced numbers. The count on and count back games are designed to help children learn some of the vocabulary of addition and subtraction; count on, count back, more than and less than. This game works well on both a tablet or a computer screen. Enjoy!

 

Hit The Button: This is a quick-fire question game for practicing number bonds, doubles and halving. The games are played agains the clock and are designed to challenge and develop mental maths skills. Regular use of this game can really sharpen your child’s recall of number facts in a fun and engaging way!

 

 

Caterpillar Ordering & Sequencing: This is an interactive ordering and sequencing numbers game, which is suitable for 5 to 11 year olds, this maths game has different levels which can be matched to a child’s
mathematical ability level. The drag and drop activities help children to order numbers, beginning at a basic level and extending to challenge their understanding of this concept.

 

 

Number Fact Families: Can you find all the number fact families? This is just the thing for learning the
relationship between addition and subtraction. Use this clever game to practice number bonds to 10 by finding all of the different ways that a number can be made. Recognising fact families is an important number concept where young children can begin to recognise inverse operations, e.g. 3+5=8  and  8-3=5/ Begin by working on numbers up to 10 and extend to 20 when you think your child is ready for the challenge!

Here is a great song that we used a couple of weeks ago when we were thinking about 3D shapes! Warning: This song will definitely get stuck in your head!

We use this ‘Farmer Pete’ song to teach number bonds to 10! I wonder if anybody can film their own number bond video? Make sure to share it if you do!
