Play a game of one more or one less. 

You say a number ( up to 10 or above depending on your child) and your child is to tell you the number one less and one more than the number you have said. Use objects to help them work it out. They could begin by writing their own number line to help them too. 





Recap 3D shapes using the game sunny shapes on Education city.

Practice writing number sentences. Say aloud a number story then the number sentences to your child e.g. I have 5 teddies and 2 teddies. How many are there altogether? 5+2=... and ask your child to write this out on a whiteboard or on paper.  You could do this with lots of different numbers including teen numbers based on your child's ability.  Use objects or draw the amounts to help work it out. 




Sorting. Have a selection of items such as buttons or beads. Ask them to sort the buttons and see if they can tell you how they are sorting them. You could then explore sorting in different ways- This could be by colour, shape, size, number of holes etc. Can they then make a pattern? 




Play copy me. Model different actions such as clapping hands, nodding your head, jumping and see if they can copy. Make a pattern using different actions and see if they can copy. Then give them the opportunity to be the leader and see if they understand making a pattern with two or three actions.
