Christmas Activities for Key Stage 1 Mathsby Irene Yates
Christmas Activities for KS1 Maths contains fun festive mathematical activities, designed harness children's enthusiasm at this exciting time of the year and keep them on task. The activities are linked to the National Numeracy Strategy targets, so integrating them into your planning is easy.
Reception children will practise counting from left to right and add one on to help Santa load his sleigh. Year 1 children will sort toys into pairs and estimate the number of stars. Year 2 children will have the opportunity to learn about money when buying presents and can practise counting back in 10s with starry numbers.
Now you can exploit the children's natural enthusiasm for the season and inspire them to create especially good work with this bank of fun, stimulating ideas and activities - so you can all enjoy the run-up to Christmas!
Christmas Activities for KS1 Maths has been designed to take you through the term leading up to Christmas, with the targets of the Key Stage 1 Numeracy Strategy autumn term for Reception and Years 1 and 2 specifically in mind. The book, as a whole, covers a wide spectrum of these targets whilst providing lots of fun activities all linked to Christmas.
The sheets can be used independently and most ask the children to work in the space provided. There are a few activities which require cutting and sticking; these have a scissors symbol in the corner ( ). Each task, or activity, has educational rigour, making the work suitable for introducing a topic or reinforcing it. The sheets are not designed as time fillers and should not be used as such. They are meant to become an integral part of your Numeracy planning for the first term of the year.
The elves’ speech bubbles on every sheet are useful starting points for plenary sessions.
