Quick Tasks


Counting: Practice counting in 1s (as high as you can go!), 2s (up to 24), 5s (up to 60) and 10s (up to at least 100, see if you can get to 120). 

*This could be done when out for a walk (how many steps) or looking for numbers around the house/village and counting to or from that number.

*By drawing your own Hopscotch game using numbers from the 2s, 5s or 10s pattern. 


Number Writing: Practice writing numbers to make sure they are all written correctly. How high can you go?

Position and Direction


In Year 1 Children are taught to describe position (next to, above, below) direction (forward, backward, left and right) and movement (quarter, half and three quarter turns).  


If exploring this at home keep it nice a practical. Choose a toy/shape/object and practice turning this quarter, half, three quarter and full turns. You could draw out a circle or stand in a hoop if you have one with markers on to show where each turn would stop. See Mrs Devereaux's example in the picture below to help.
