Maths activities 


Monday Session 1

Starter – Listen to 5 little men in a flying saucer. Count backwards from 5 as each man flies away.


Task – (SHOW)

Model counting 10 objects out. Count forward. Then model counting backwards from 10. As you count move one object to a separate pile and count down to 0 Explain that when we are counting back we are ‘taking away’. This is called ‘subtraction’. Sometimes we need to take away as well as add. Show the chn the subtraction sign and explain what it means. Show them where they would see it in a number sentence. Reinforce language of ‘take away’ and subtraction and explain that they are special words we use to describe this operation. Complete additional activity

Starter –   Listen to 5 little men in a flying saucer. Count backwards from 5 as each man flies away.

Task –  (SHOW)

Re-cap language from yesterday. Can you remember the words that we used? Subtract / take away. Explain that today we will be attempting to subtract using some objects. Model taking away from a group of objects. I.e. 5 take away 2 is 3. Repeat several examples and ask the children to try some with you.  Complete additional activity.

Starter – Look at a group of objects. Can the children say which has more? Which has less?


Task –(DO)

Pose some examples to the children and ask them to work the answer out using objects independently. Ensure chn start with one group of objects and are ‘subtracting’ objects. Address any misconceptions regarding the process.  Complete additional activity.

Task –(DO)

Show the chn the numicon shapes. Make comparisons to numbers i.e. 5 has five holes etc.  Have some of the numicon shapes. Choose a 7 shape. “We want to take away 3. We can pretend to take away 3 by hiding part of the 7 shape.” Model this. Ask” “What is 7 takeaway 3?” Check with the 4 shape. Model the language: “7 takeaway 3 equals 4.” Repeat with other shapes. Ask the chn to complete some examples independently. Use the shapes to reinforce the fact that they are subtracting.  Complete additional activity.
