maths provision

  • Days of the Week, months of the year - can you put them in order?
  • Guess my rule – mixture of 2d, 3d shapes or amounts. Chose a rule and sort them into a box, can you guess the rule? I.e. shapes with 4 corners, shapes with curved sides, shapes with triangles on them.
  • Challenge scavenger hunt – find the biggest thing in the house, smallest, longest, shortest, roundest, straightest, numbers etc 😊
  • One more, one less catch. Shout a question, ‘one more than 2…’ and pass it for the answer 😊
  • Party food groups.  Can you sort something yummy between 2 teddies, can you split them between 3 teddies, 4  teddies? Is it fair on all of them? Are they equal groups?
  • How many different patterns can you make with your toys? Can someone spot your pattern rule?
  • Get your parents to give you a piece of string/wool. Can you find something that is exactly the same length? Very good for encouraging descriptive maths language and a good opportunity for a hot cup of tea parents! 
  • Length/height scavenger hunt. Can you find 5 things and put them in height order or length order? You can extend this to weight too.
  • Pass the parcel, wrap up some numbers, number sentences, shapes, anything maths related and play 😊
