Mathematics at home


  • Help your child count to and across 100, forwards and backwards beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number
  • Practise reading & writing numbers to 100 in numerals
  • Encourage counting in steps of 2, 5 & 10
  • Give your child a number. Can they identify one more/one less?
  • Use objects around the home to add and subtract
  • When confident, encourage them to add & subtract mentally using numbers up to 20
  • Encourage your child to know number bonds for numbers up to 10, then 20. E.g How many ways can you make 5, 6, 7, 8 etc.
  • Recognise and find half of a shape, object or quantity
  • Let your child handle coins. Can they recognise them? Play ‘shops’ using the coins
  • When opportunities arise, get your child to measure weights, lengths and capacities
