Today we are going to do some number challenges to practise recognising numbers and adding up single digit numbers. There are 2 games/activities for you to do here. You can choose whether you just do one or both or come up with your own maths games!
1. Play beetle drive. For this game you will need a dice or if you don't have one then just write down numbers 1-6 and pieces of paper instead. The aim of this game is to be the first person to create this beetle:
But to be able to draw a body part you have to roll the corresponding number on your dice. Here is what each number represents:
1 = an eye
2 = an antennae
3 = spot
4 = leg
5 = head
6 = body
You can play this game with as many people as you like. Take it in turns to roll the dice and then draw what you roll. The rules are that you have to start with a body so you can't draw anything until you roll a 6! And you cannot draw the eyes or antennae until you have a head.
2. Go on an outdoor scavenger hunt! During your outdoor exercise today take a notepad and pencil with you and see how many things on your walk you can spot. Look at how many points you get for each thing you spot and then add up your total to see what your score is for your walk! Maybe you could walk somewhere else on another and see if you can beat your score?
Here is what you are hunting for and how many points each thing is worth. I have also uploaded the document version in case you want to / are able to print it off. If you do not have access to a printer then you could always take a photo or draw simple representations of it to use on your walk.
