With the clocks going forward an hour next weekend we can all enjoy lighter evenings and a lovely spring. The Easter holidays also start soon and with this in mind we would like to make all our great Easter worksheets completely free.
These fun worksheets give a chance to link the maths being taught to current events. Our Early Years sets look at counting Easter eggs and counting two sets of objects, in this case two different types of Easter egg and are suitable for those children learning to count to 10. We also have a set of pages which looks at counting in threes. There are three eggs in each nest, so how many altogether?
One of my favourite sets of worksheets is the Easter shopping; £6 to spend investigation. This is a ‘How many ways….?’ type of investigation where all the possible answers need to be found and really shows whether children can work in a logical, well organised way.
We have plenty of Easter shopping questions, including adding multiples of 10p and finding the change from £2, as a combination of Easter chicks, bunnies and eggs are bought.
Continuing with the chocolate theme, bars of chocolate are a good way to explain simple fractions and pairs of fractions which add up to 1.
We complete our Easter collection with two sets of worksheets on position and co-ordinates, rather like an Easter egg hunt!
