"We flourish not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."


'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12

Year 1

Enjoy playing some of these maths games today. 


Addition / Subtraction Bingo


Divide two pieces of paper into 6 equal parts.


Then cut 12 small pieces of card / paper and write addition or subtraction sentences (up to 20) on to them.


Write the answers to the number sentence onto the two pieces of paper.


Shuffle the cards and place face down in front of you. 


Take it in turns to turn over a card and solve the number sentence. If the answer is on your sheet, place the number sentence on top of the correct answer. If you do not have the correct answer on your sheet, the card goes to the bottom of the pile.


Have fun!

Cupcake Maths


 You will need a  cupcake tray, some cupcake cases and a bouncy ball (please made any substitutions as necessary - a dice would work just as well as a ball)


First, write addition or subtraction number sentences on to bottom of 12 cupcake cases.

Next, place the cupcake cases in the tray. 

After that, gently bounce the ball on the tray, it will, hopefully, land in one of the cupcake cases.

Finally, solve the number sentence written in the case. 


Finger Maths Games


Why not challenge your grown ups or siblings to one of the finger maths games we have played during our zoom sessions? Either number bonds to 10, the addition game or the 'Odd and Evens' game.  


Play-doh Challenge


Use play-doh to practice making numbers.


Can you make two 2-digit numbers and the  less than (<), more than (>)or equal to (=) symbols with your play-doh? 


Now, use these to make correct number sentences. For example: use play-doh to show 12<14.


Have fun!

Here are some number games for you to try. You don't have to complete them all. 



Place Value War


For this game you will need some cards with the digits 0-9 on. A pack of Uno cards or similar would work perfectly for this but you could make  you own cards.


Shuffle the cards and put them in a pile in the middle of the players. Players take it in turns to draw two cards and  make the biggest number possible with their cards. The player with the biggest number wins the round!
