Introduction Maths is like a jigsaw puzzle – little bits and pieces of scattered information – some fit together and make sense, some don’t. Often lessons cover a range of topics over the week – a bit of number pattern work on Monday, a bit of measurement on Tuesday, maths facts on Wednesday, and so on. Ideally maths is taught in contextual chunks rather than little bits and is integrated with other subject areas to help children see its value and purpose in everyday life, that is, to see how the pieces fit together.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

The activities in this book have been designed with this in mind. The activities also provide a new version of the 3 R’s: REAL-LIFE:

Relate to children’s own experiences.

RADICAL :

Fun activities and themes, games and new ideas.

Teac he r

Revise the basic concepts.

ew i ev Pr

REVISION:

The tasks in the book fit into the concept areas of Number, Measurement and Space.

Teaching Notes

The activity sheets in this book are accompanied by introductory teaching notes which will provide teachers with the information necessary to conduct a successful lesson.

Teac he r

There are many different ways of presenting simple maths facts for revision. Vary difficulty according to age and ability. Here is a general guideline: Year One: Addition facts to 10. Year Two: Addition and subtraction facts to 20. Include counting on and back +1,+2,+3, -1,-2,-3, doubles, zeros, 10’s facts. Use basic facts in operations to 99. Year Three: Consolidate addition and subtraction facts to 20. Use basic facts in operations to 999. Multiplication facts to 9x but begin with easy 1’s, 2’s/5’s, 1’s/0’s. The activity pages contain templates that teachers or children can enter numbers into as required. The examples below will provide some ideas.

Play as a game on the blackboard. 1. Choose one child from each group to come to the board as a competitor. 2. Each competitor throws the die and draws the corresponding number of circles. 3. They throw the die again and draw the corresponding number of objects in each circle. 4. Each competitor then describes what they have, e.g. “I have 2 groups of 4 which gives me 8 altogether.” 5. The child with the highest number gets a point for their group. Continue until all children have represented their group and there is an overall winner. Alternatively, play two children at a time with the loser sitting down each time, until you have a winner remaining.
