Maths

Remember to keep up to date with your Counting Ladders. Start at the bottom of a ladder and work your way up to the top.

Addition and subtraction club. Remember!! You can not start the next set until you can get all of your current set correct.

Year 1 Maths prompt to keep key skills sharp.

Have a go at these shape activities:

 

 

Money 

Recognising coins:  Discuss the value of each coin. 

Set up a small toy shop and label the price of the toys 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2.   Collect each coin and put them in a purse or pot.  Play shops and search for the correct coin to buy the toys. 

Using coins to count in 1s 2s 5s 10s:   Change the prices to multiples of 10.  10p, 20p, 30p, 40p, 50p 

Count out the correct money at your toy shop.  Use 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins to make the new prices.  Draw round the coins and label the amount. 

Making different amounts with money:  Change the prices to different amounts up to 50p.  

18p, 24p, 36p, 45p, 48p.  Count out the coins to make the new prices.  Can you make the same price using different coins?  Draw round the coins and label the amount. 

Money grab: Take 3 coins.  Name them and put them in order from the smallest amount to the largest amount. Draw round the coins and label the amount. 

 

 

 

Position and movement

Talk about position, direction and movement, including whole turn, half turn, quarter turn and three quarter turns.  Remember to turn clockwise like a clock.

Go outside. Give instructions to turn using the language ‘quarter turn’, ‘half turn’ and ‘three quarters turn’. Also use ‘forwards’ and ‘backwards’ to move from one place to another.  Children could follow and give directions from one hoop to another.

 

Choose a shape to show turns.

Draw round starting position.

This shape has made a quarter turn.

Draw round finish position.

 

Repeat with half turn.

Repeat with three quarters turn.

 

 

Try some of these problem solving tasks.

 

 

Telling the time

We have noticed that many children are getting the hands on the clock face muddled up.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhk82hv

The long hand counts the minutes.

The short hand counts the hours.

Please make sure your child is secure at reading the O’clock time and moving the hands to the correct position unaided. 

 

Read the time and make the time by moving the hands.

Make a paper plate clock face with minute hand and hour hand.  Move the hands on the clock to point out the time. Start with ‘O’clock’ times and move on to 10 minute intervals.

10 minutes past 7

20 minutes past 7

30 minutes past 7

When secure move on to 5 minute intervals.

Telling the time

Develop an awareness of time passing by timing activities.  ‘We were out for an hour on our walk.  It took you two minutes to tidy away your toys ’   

Timing activities:

How many skips can you do in 1 minute? (60 seconds)

How many times can you write your name neatly in 1 minute?

How many lego bricks can you join together in 1 minute?

How long does it take to put your shoes on? (seconds/minutes)

Repeat.  Can you improve this time?

Point out different times during the day: Make a link to the time on the clock face. If you can, change and digital devices to the analogue clock face to show the second hand, minute hand and hour hand moving. 

My day: Getting up time, breakfast time, exercise time, work time, play time, lunchtime, dinner time, TV time, getting ready for bed, story time and sleep time.  Take photos to show time passing throughout the day in a certain order.  Write labels to go with the photos of your day.

Read the time and make the time by moving the hands.

Use an old analogue clock or Make a paper plate clock face with minute hand and hour hand.  Move the hands on the clock to point out the time. Start with ‘O’clock’ times and move on to ‘half past’ times. ‘Make 6 O’clock.  What do you usually do at this time?’

 

 

Fractions: Equal parts the same size and the same shape.

At meal times, practice cutting food in half to show two equal parts. One of the two equal parts is called a half.  Two halves make one whole. 

When confident move on to quarters. Split the whole into 4 equal parts.  One of the 4 equal parts is called a quarter.  4 quarters make one whole.

Capacity.

Have a discussion about capacity.   The amount a container holds.

Do some practical work with water or oats.  How many spoons fill the cup? 

Guess then count how many.  Try different sized spoons?  Is there a difference?
