Memorising important phone numbers and who they belong to is a very important skill for children to learn. This activity is fun and also helps with children’s number recognition.
Maths Activity Mats
Twinkl have designed maths activity mats covering both number and shape, space and measures Early Learning Goals. This is a great resource to help children revise what they have learnt this year and apply what they know.
Any learning activity that results in cake or biscuits is bound to be a winner with children and baking is a great way to help them become familiar with concepts like weight and capacity. You could even incorporate some Literacy by asking them to write a list of ingredients or even write the recipe.
An outdoor mosaic is a great way to incorporate art and numeracy as you can challenge children to identify different shapes within the mosaic, count how many shapes there are and count how many sides the shapes have. The mosaic could be done directly onto the floor with chalk or on large sheets of paper with pencils, crayons on even paint. Simply masking tape off or draw the outline and shapes, then away you go!
Board games are brilliant for developing maths skills as well as many other important skills such as turn-taking and strategy. In particular, games like Snakes and Ladders, Shut the Box and other dice games are great.
