Year 1 Maths 24.2.21



Today in maths we are working on counting in 5s.


Use this counting in 5s song to get you warmed up and ready to start today. Click here and get ready to join in.


Now have a look at this video.

You could click here for the power point slides if you would prefer to go at your own pace.

Remember to share your ideas and answers with a grown up.


Today's activities can be found within the video / power point. Please stop and have a go at the different tasks as and when instructed.

  • Hunt around the house to spot things which you can count in 5s and have a go at counting how many. Remember to count in 5s!

  • Try the counting back in 5s exercise using the number grid to 50. You could count by yourself and then with a grown up, taking turns on each number.

  • Colour the counting in 5s numbers on the number grid to 50. Then practise counting these numbers. What patterns can you see? Tell a grown up what you notice.

Grown ups:

If your child is finding counting in 5s tricky, please continue to work on counting in 1s and 2s to 20. I would recommend using the number grid to support this work.
