Some other ideas for maths activities are:

  • Sing, chant, march, speed recall your times tables facts - race an adult ... can you score more correct answers in 30 seconds than they can?
  • Measure (approximately) the height up your stairs at home and calculate how many times you would need to climb the stairs to climb the equivalent height of a famous mountain (no. of times = height of mountain/height of stairs). Can you climb Snowden or Everest in your home over Easter?
  • Practice telling the time - 12 hour (am/pm), 24 hour , analogue (round face) and digital
  • work out time ‘intervals’ - "How long until dinner?"
  • Playing maths related board games – Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders, dominoes
  • Play card games that use maths skills 
  • Practise number bonds to 10, 20, 50 or 100 (or 1000 Y5/Y6) - “83 and …?”  “...17”
  • Use money skills in a pretend toy/food shop at home
