Tuesday 1st February

Good Morning boys and girls.

Here are some activities for you to do at home today. 

These are exactly the same as the activities we do in school so you will be very famiiar with them.




Bowing Pin Subtraction!


You will need...

- 10 water bottles / plastic cups/ anything that can act as bowling pins 

- a soft ball 

- a number line (see below)


How to play...

- Use your water bottles or plastic cups as bowling pins and set them up in a triangle

- Each player gets two turns at bowling the ball and trying to knock down the 'pins' 

- When possible, encourage children to say how many are bottles there are left without counting 

- You can ask "How many pins were there to start with?","How many did you know down?", "How many are left?" 

- See if you can turn it into a subtraction number sentence: e.g. there were 10 pins and you knocked down 2, so there are 8 left. This must mean 10-2=8

- You can use the number line to help work out these subtraction problems. Practice counting backwards when you have knocked down pins to see how many you are left with! 

- You could also use your fingers to help count backwards. 


Number language to practice using...

See if you can include words such as...

take away            subtract          minus            how many?        left          leaves        is     

               gives                  equals          count                     back
