What’s new: Matching 3-D shapes (2)

It’s time to get all the boxes out and try to sort them into types depending on their shape. Much can be done at home to help with 3-D shape work and children love to play with empty boxes; the bigger the better. It’s well worth collecting a store of boxes and much discussion can […]

What’s new: Addition with tens and units

What’s new: Maths worksheets on 2D shape

The fifth set of worksheets on 2D shape reinforces the earlier pages, looking at rectangles, triangles and circles.

All triangles have 3 sides, all rectangles have 4 sides […]

What’s New: Matching 3D Shapes (1)

Interestingly, the Primary Framework for Mathematics believes that 3D shape should be taught at the same time, if not sooner than, 2D shape.

What’s New: Measurement, longer and shorter

Whether it is snakes, ladders or trousers, there are plenty of opportunities on these worksheets to use the language of measurement, in this case, longer and shorter.

Extra resources: Blank clock faces

As suggested by several of our members, including Anne and Bev, here are two pages of blank clock faces. These are ideal for helping with telling the time. Remember, with young children, start by just showing the time to the whole hour and then move on to showing half hours. Ask your child what time […]
