Year 1 Maths 26.2.21




Today in maths we will be doing several different activities. Try to spend about 10 minutes on each task.


First of all, practise your counting skills.

  • Can you count forwards in ones all the way to 100? Can you cross the tens boundaries? For example, what number comes after 59? What number comes after 39? You could use the Big Numbers song to help you.

  • Can you count back in ones from 100 to 0? Can you cross the tens boundaries? For example, what number comes after 50? What number comes after 30? You could use the counting back song to help you.

  • Can you count in 2s? You could use the counting in 2s song to help you.

  • Can you count in 5s? You could use the counting in 5s song to help you.

You could also use the number grid to 50 to support your counting.


Then, have a go at reading and writing numbers to 50.

  • Take turns with a grown up to challenge each other to find a number on the number grid eg Can you find 37 / 42 / 13? etc.

  • Ask a grown up to say a number to 50 and you have to write it down. Then check on the number grid to see if you were right.

Next, I would like you to practise representing the tens and ones in 2 digit numbers up to 50.

  • Choose a number from 10 to 50. Look at your number grid to 50 to help you choose.

  • Can you read that number?

  • Can you represent the tens and ones in that number on a part whole model, using objects from around the house, such as pencils for the tens and buttons for the ones?
