Starter of the month

EYFS
Sing ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’. As you sing, ask the children to match each line with the appropriate number of fingers and a suitable action. As you sing point to the number on a number line. As the children’s awareness of numbers develops you could ask a child to come and point to the numbers.

KS1
Santa's magic sack


Use 2 different coloured multi-link cubes and fill a bag with them.
Decide on a value for each colour. For example, blue = 10, yellow = 1.
Shake the bag and ask children to pull out 4 cubes.
Can they make and say the number represented by the cubes?
eg 2 blues, 1 yellow = 21.

KS2
Christmas Word Challenge

If a = 1, b = 2 c = 3 etc, find Christmas words which are worth a multiple of 10,

For example, Bells has a value of 2+5+12+12+19 which is 50.

Here is a list of words to get you started, but ask the children to come up with their own. They can get 5 points for every word that has a sum of a multiple of 10 and 20 points if they can find a word that has a total of 100. It is up to you to decide whether calculators would be appropriate:

Present
Santa
Wrapping paper
Snowman
Tinseltime
