P1 Numeracy (Wk 3)



DAILY – RMeasimaths – approximately 10-15 minutes.


NEW COLOUR – white

  • Look for white things in your home / environment. Can you make a set of 6 white things? How many different ways can you make it?





  • Rote counting forwards from 0-5 and 0-10, 0-15 / 0-20 and beyond.
  • Rote count backwards from 5-0 / 10-0. Try 13-0 etc. 
  • FOCUS: Rote counting forwards and backwards in 1’s from different starting points within 5. If you are confident within 5 progress to within 10, then within 15 / 20. For example, start at 3 and count forwards to 6; start at 6 and count backwards to 0.


Remember to focus on the vocabulary that is used. If you are not sure of the answers you could draw the chews, dice patterns or use your cubes to help you to solve the problems.

  • I went shopping and I bought 5 green chews. My sister bought 1 yellow chew. How many do we have altogether?
  • 2 add 1?
  • 4 and 1 altogether makes?


  • Sequence all of your digit cards forwards.
  • Sequence all of your digit cards backwards.
  • FOCUS: A. Sequence sets of 3 consecutive number cards in order, e.g. 3, 4, 5 or 1, 2, 3 or 6, 7, 8.  Plus: B. Sequence sets of 3 number cards backwards from biggest to smallest, e.g. 5, 4, 3 or 3, 2, 1 or 8, 7, 6. An adult can choose each set.




CHALLENGE: Can you write the story of 6 without using any counters? There will be seven sums in total. This is the first one: 6+0=6  

If you can't write the story maybe you could draw each sum using the dice patterns.  




  • Use this link  to revise the names of 2D shapes. 
  • Click on the link below to look at the different pictures made with 2D shapes. Count how many circles, ovals, triangles, squares and rectangles you can see in each picture.
  • Try to make your own picture using 2D shapes. Think about what you would like to make. Draw your own 2D shapes on different coloured paper, cut them out and then rearrange them to make your 2D shape picture. Count how many of each shape you used. I’d love to see photos of your pictures.

P.S. Here are the cuboids that I found in my house. How many did you find?
