Oral maths games to help your child Print Email
Thursday, 18 October 2012 16:50

There are a number of simple ways in which you can help your child with maths at home. I have compiled a number of ideas which may be of use to you as a parent. Although some of these activities may seem very basic, studies have shown that children who have a lot of hands on experience in their early years will have a greater understanding in this area as they progress to more difficult tasks.


Sorting and Matching

 Have your child help to sort the laundry eg. match up socks.

Have your child sort the knives, forks and spoons in the drawer.

Sort shells or leaves into similar shaped groups.

Sort things into groups of similar colour, shape or size.

Counting and Number

Counting and clapping from 0-10 , counting backwards from 10- 0.

Counting and clapping from 3-8, counting backwards from 8-3 etc...

Counting Can- drop a small number of objects eg. coins, conkers into a can, ask your child how many are in the can. (extention- now drop in some more objects, now how many are in the can?) Do not allow your child to see the objects as you are dropping them, they must rely on the sound alone.

Make out cards with numbers 1-10.Allow your child to count the numbers. Remove one. Which number is missing? ( alternatively mix up the numbers and have your child'fix' them.)

Count to a number no higher than 10 to begin with, leave out a number but nod your head, 'which number did I leave out?'

The Triangle Print Email
Wednesday, 10 October 2012 09:48

This week in Ms. Harding's class we are learning about the triangle.

One, two, three; one, two, three
Do you see? Do you see?
Up the hill and to the top,
Down the hill--and then you stop,
Straight across; tell me what have you got?
A triangle--a triangle!

Look at all the triangles we found around the school!






It's Hip to be a Square Print Email

Sammy Square is my name.
My four sides are just the same.
Turn me around, I don't care.
I'm always the same. I am a square!



Ms.Harding's and Ms Martin's class are learning about the square this week. Have a look at all the squares we found!

This week Ms.Harding's class are learning about the circle.

I am Cindy Circle,

Watch me turn round and round

And you will learn

I'm not straight

I do not bend

My outer edges never end!
