P1 Numeracy (Wk 6)



RMeasimaths – approximately 10-15 minutes at least three times per week. If it is getting too hard for you, please let me know.



  • Say the days of the week every morning. Tell an adult which day it is every morning. Try to say: Yesterday was …… today is …… tomorrow will be. Click on the link below to join in with the days of the week song.
  • Choose one day of the week to carry out the daily calendar activity.


  • Rote counting forwards from 0-5 and 0-10, 0-15 / 0-20, 0-30 and beyond if you are confident.
  • Rote count backwards from 5-0 / 10-0. Try 15-0, 20-0, 30-0 etc. 
  • FOCUS: W.A.L.T. Identify missing numbers within a sequence.
    Complete the following:

     0  1   2  __  4  __

    0 __ 2   3  __  5  6

__ 1  __ __  __ 5  __ 7

     0  1  2  3  4  5  6  __  8  9  10

__ 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  __  __ 10

0  1  __  3  __  5  __  7  __  9  __



  • Sequence all of your digit cards forwards. Close your eyes. Ask an adult to take some away. Can you tell them which numbers are missing?



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

  • I went shopping and I bought 6 packets of biscuits. My sister bought 1 packet. How many packets did we buy altogether?
  • 4 add 1?
  • 7 and 1 altogether makes?
  • 0 and 1 more is?



  • Look at the photos of the mini chocolate fingers below. How many more biscuits do I need to put on each plate to make them up to 7? How quick can you get the answers? p.s. I enjoyed eating the biscuits after I took the photos! wink

NUMBER: W.A.L.T. Compare the size of two sets by matching and counting, saying which has more / less.

Sometimes you can see instantly which set has ‘more’. To understand the concept, I count the objects but I also draw a line to match the objects. Look at my set below. Can you tell which has ‘more’ / which has ‘less’?

After you have looked at my sets check out the powerpoint below. Instead of using the word ‘less’ they use the word ‘fewer’.

PRACTICAL: Make two towers with your cubes - one to have ‘more’ than 7 cubes and the other to have ‘less’ than 7 cubes.

2D SHAPE FOCUS: Heart heart

  • Look for heart shapes in your home and environment.
  • Try to draw 7 hearts and colour them in. 


  • Look for cone shapes in your home and environment.
  • Complete the worksheet below.


  • FOCUS: 2p coin – When I count 2p coins I touch each 2p coin twice - 1, 2. When I am more confident I count each 2p coin in two’s - 2, 4, 6, etc. Make the following amounts of money using 2p coins: 2p, 4p, 6p, 8p / 10p



  • Complete the money worksheet ‘How much is in my jar?’


  • CHALLENGE: Can you draw a clock without copying one. Do you remember where the numbers go on the clockface? Remember to use correct numeral formation. Draw a time of your choice onto it (either o’clock or a half past time). If you decide to draw a half past time, remember that the short hand (the hour hand) needs to be in between two numbers; for example, if you draw half past 1 the short hand will point in between the numbers 1 / 2.


  • W.A.L.T. Recognise digital o’clock times. Did you look around your home to find digital clocks? – what did you notice about them?
  • Check out the links below.


  • Use your cubes to make a long tower and a short tower. How many ‘more’ cubes does your long tower have? How did you get your answer?
  • Complete the following pages in your workbook that you received on Friday:
    Page 5 ‘Long’   and page 6 ‘Short’. 


  • Discuss the PowerPoint presentation ‘Which holds more’.
