Make-it Monday

Good morning everyone and welcome to a new week.smiley

Mini Maths

Let's do some number challenges at the beach:

Number challenge: As well as counting, you could ask:

  • which is more? beach balls or clouds?
  • which is taller? child or tree?
  • if 2 more children came to play, how many children would there be?
  • How many ice-creams would you need to buy for 4 children and 2 mums?

Super number challenge:

If you make 5 sandcastles and put 2 shells on each sandcastle- how many shells would you use? (You might need to draw a picture to help solve this puzzle).


Play a game of 'Fred-Talk/ Say the word' at the beach.

Adult says, 'h-a-t'. Child says, 'h-a-t.........hat'.

Adult says, 's-u-n'. Child says, 's-u-n.........sun'.

Adult says, 't-r-ee'. Child says, 't-r-ee.........tree'.

Adult says, 's-a-n-d'. Child says, 's-a-n-d.........sand'.


How many pictures can you remember from last week?
