MENTAL MATHS – REVISION - (remember to include 0 in your counting!)

  • Continue to rote counting forwards from 0-5 and 0-10, 0-20 / 0-30 and beyond.
  • Continue to rote count backwards from 30-0, 20-0,10-0. Can you go further? 40-0 etc.
  • Continue to add 1 to numbers within 5, 10, 15, 20 / beyond.
  • Count forwards (in ones) from different starting points within 10 / 20 and beyond. E.g. start at 3 and count forwards to 9. 
  • Count backwards (in ones) from different starting points within 10 / 20 and beyond. E.g. Start at 11 and count backwards to 4. 



  • Continue to order all of your numbers forwards / backwards.
  • Continue to order random numbers from smallest to biggest / biggest to smallest.


NUMBER FOCUS -  REVISION – Numbers from 1-9


  • Use your finger to write these numbers in the air.
  • Use your finger to write the numbers from 1- 9 on someones back.
  • If you have shaving foam at home, ask an adult to put it on the table and write the numbers from 1-9 in it.
  • If you have playdough make the numbers from 1-9.
  • When you go outside to play try to gather some small twigs, sticks, leaves or stones to make the numbers from 1-9. 
  • Practise writing the numbers 1-9 on your whiteboard.
  • Draw the following things on your whiteboard or on a page. Draw them on different days, e.g on Monday, draw 1 chick, 2 hens, 3 daisies and 4 ovals. On Tuesday draw 5 suns, 6 bunnies and 7 carrots. On Wednesday draw 8 baskets and 9 Easter eggs.
  • Use the cubes from your homework pack to make towers from 1-9. What did you notice?
  • Use your red/yellow counters / ten grid from your homework pack to make sets from 1 to 9 in different ways, e.g. ONE - 1 red / 0 yellow, 0 red and 1 yellow; TWO - 2 red and 0 yellow, 1 red and 1 yellow; THREE - 3 red and 0 yellow, 2 red and 1 yellow, 1 red and 2 yellow, 0 red and 3 yellow; FOUR - 4 red and 0 yellow, 3 red and 1 yellow, etc.
  • Try to write the sums that make up the number stories. E.g. The story of 1 is 1+0=1, 0+1=1. The story of 2 is 2+0=2, 1+1=2, 0+2=2. Can you go up to the story of 9? You can use your counters to help you but I challenge you to try to write some of the number stories from memory!



SHAPE - Revision

  • Use your Pupil Support Book to revise the names of 2D and 3D shapes. 
  • Go on a hunt around your home to find 2D shapes. 
  • Try to answer these questions without looking at your book -How many sides do these 2D shapes have - Circle? Triangle? Square? Rectangle? Hexagon? / Octagon?
  • How many 2D shapes have corners? curved sides? straight sides?
  • Which 3D shape has square faces? How many faces does it have? How many corners?
  • Now go on a hunt around your home to find these 3D shapes - find a 3D shape that has six squares faces; find a 3D shape that has square and rectangle faces; find a sphere- what can it do when you push it?; Can you find a long and a short cylinder? Can you find a cone shape? Say their names when you find them.



MONEY – REVISION – recognition of 1p / £1. coins.

  • If possible, count out 1p coins up to the value of 10p.
  • Have you any Easter eggs? I’m sure you have! How about making price labels for each of your eggs, e.g. £1. £2. £3. up to the value of £9. Make a little shop to role play selling your eggs. 


TIME - Use your clock to revise o'clock and half past times.
