Reception - Count up to 20 starting at 0. Count backwards.  Can you start counting at a different number?  

Year 1s - Count up to 100 starting at 0, ensure that your child can cross the tens boundaries, e.g. 19, 20.  29, 30, etc.


Reception - set up a relay race where your child can run and grab a number card (a piece of paper with number written on it) run back and place their number with the correct number of objects. Objects can be positioned like dots on a dice to support your child to see the pattern and to help them to count more effectively without moving the objects. Once they have done that, run and get another number!  Please work with numbers up to 20.


Year 1s

This week in Maths we will be learning about tens and ones.  Work through the PowerPoint to support your understanding of this.  Then follow this link to complete the game.



Reception - Flash cards - Show your child numbers from 0 - 20.  Ask you child to shout out the number.  Ask them to write it in the air.  Your child should be able to recognise all numbers from 0 - 20. 


Reception activity - Problem solving - Roll a Roll dice what number have you rolled? Can you colour in the correct amount of squares? (see sheet below) Can you now colour in the same number of squares but in a different pattern? All squares must be touching. Repeat with a different number.


Year 1s - Flash cards - show your child a number from 0 - 100.  Can they read the number using their knowledge of tens and ones?  This number has 3 tens so is 30 and 4 ones.  It must be 34!  Repeat with other numbers.  Your child should be able to recognise and read numbers up to 100. 


Yesterday we used this game to support your child in understanding the place value of numbers and how numbers are partitioned into tens and ones.  Use this game again to ensure that your child has understood the concept.  If not, return to the PowerPoint from yesterday.


Play the following game on ICT games.

Look at the Dienes and ask your child to work out the number that it represents.  Model how to count the tens first and then count on.  Model how to use the Dienes as a visual representation, e.g 1 ten and 2 ones is 12.  Repeat until your child can see this with increasing speed and accuracy.


Year 1 activity - 

Use a hundred square (below).  Close your eyes and pick a number on the 100 number square. Colour this number in and write it in a square on the next page. Partition the number into tens and ones, using pictorial representation, e.g. lines for the amount of tens and dots for the ones. E.g. 26 ‘ll ……’ (2 tens and 6 ones).

Repeat with other numbers. 




Reception - What is one more than 5?  What is one more than 6?  What is one more than...?  Repeat with other numbers up to 20.  To support your child you can use objects from around the house, e.g. toys, books, etc and allow them to add one more to see this visually.  If your child can already do this, model how to count on to find the answer. 


Reception activity - (below)

Choose one of the one more worksheets to complete, depending on which is more appropriate for your child.


Year 1 -  Practise counting in 10s and 2s. Can you write all of the multiples of 10?  Can you write multiples of 2?


Year 1 activity - 

Complete the worksheet below.  Look at the Dienes representation of 2 digit numbers and write the correct number to match. 



Reception - Count forwards and backwards from any given number up to 20.  Practise number formation - can you write the number 5?  Number 6? What does number 12 look like? 


Reception Activity -

Counting worksheet - Can you count the objects and write the correct number to match.  Remember to think about place value. 


Year 1 - 

Multiples of 10 maze (worksheet below) - Count in multiples of 10.  Do you notice the pattern?  Can you use your knowledge of multiples of ten to find your way through the maze?  


Year 1 Activity - 

Wagons worksheet - Oh no!  The numbered wagons are all in the wrong order!  Can you use your knowledge of tens and ones to put them in the correct order?


Reception - 

Worksheet - Can you work out the missing numbers? Can you use the correct number formation? Use the little number rhymes to help you (included below). 


Year 1 -

Work through some of the questions from the mental/oral starter PowerPoint below.  There is no need to work through them all. 


Place Value - Complete the place value problems.  Remember to read the problems carefully!  As you won't have access to 100 number cards at home, pick a number from a hundred square (see above).
