This is game you can play together using either the 2s, 5s or 10s times tables. All you need is an old box, strips of card, pen and a small ball (or a scrunched up piece of paper if you don't have a small ball). You and your child take it turns to ask each other times table questions, like "What is the answer when I count in 10s, 5 times? What are 4 lots of 2?" Then you have to try to get your ball through the hoop showing the correct answer.
Just a little game to make times tables fun!
Don't forget we LOVE seeing what you've been doing at home, so feel free to share your ideas or photos on our Facebook page.
Skip counting is way of counting forward by numbers other than 1. It is introduced to support developing multiplication and division knowledge before formal times tables are introduced in Year 2.
Practice counting in 2s, 10s and 5s at home!
