Maths Activity

‘Monday Madness’

True or false

Motty loves to partner up exercise with maths because he loves to keep active! That is what we will be doing today.

Will you take on the challenge?

 

Before the activity:

Grown-ups need to write each of the below on a different piece of paper or post-it note and hide them around the house or in the garden.

 

5+5=10

8+5=13

12 take away 5 equals 6

2 less than 19 is 16

14-6=8

20-5=15

2+2+3=8

6+3=10

4+4=9

13-4=8

19-5=15

3+3+2=8

2 more than 6 is 8

2 less than 15 is 13

5 add 6 equals 11

2 more than 7 is 10

 

 Children’s instructions:

 

Step 1: Find one piece of paper or post-it note that has been hidden and take it to your grown up. Top tip: Only do one at a time!

Step 2: Read it together

Step 3: Work it out using the drawing for +, cross it out for - , counting in your head or use objects.

Step 4: Decide if it is true or false?  

Repeat this until you have found them all!

Challenge: You could make your own true or false game!

You need to go to: Week 2 Lesson 3 – Find a quarter 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Pause the video when you are asked so that you can do the activity.

If you have a printer at home, you can download the activity sheet next to the video and print it. If you don’t have a printer don’t worry today can be practical see the pictures below to show you how. The children can then verbalise what they have found:

Always remind children a half or quarter has to be an equal amount. Each part has to be the same. It has to be fair!

Top Tip

Another helpful way to show half and a quarter is to use paper or plates. See the pictures below, you can use these methods to practically work out the questions on today’s sheet.
