Maths at Home

In Maths, we having been working on place value. Please find below some information and resources that will support your child at home.

Year 1 – Please practise counting from any number up to 100. Focus, in particular, on the numbers that change into the next tens number.

Eg, 19 – 20, 29 – 30, 39 – 40.

When counting this is a sticking point, they don’t know what comes after 19, 29, 39, 49 and so on.

Practise writing numbers from 0 – 20, forming numbers correctly. Lots of children form numbers back to front. This is completely normal for this age group.

Ask them to write the numbers out of order too.

Have a go at the ‘Helicopter Rescue’ game below and use ‘Paint the Squares’ to help with counting.

Year 2 – Practise reading, writing and counting all the numbers from 0 to 100. You should be able to count forwards and backwards from any number.

Practise counting in steps of 2, 5, and 10. It is important you can do this for when we do multiplication. Use ‘Paint the Squares’ below to help you. Look for the patterns and think about what the numbers end in.

If you are fluent with 2, 5 and 10, try steps of 3.

Practise counting tens and ones to work out what number is being represented. Use ‘Place Value Basketball’ below.

Remember, don’t worry if you find something difficult. Keep trying and you will get there in the end!
