Tuesday 21st April - Maths
Focus: Can you subitise?
Print the bingo mat if you are able to print at home, if not you can make your own with pen and paper. There are 2 to create a 2 player game.
Play the game with a sibling or parent. Take it in turns to roll a dice and cross off the number on your bingo mat that you roll. You can see for some numbers you have to roll a specific number a few times. The first to cross their numbers is the winner. Use your subitising skills from yesterday by saying the number that you roll without counting the dots.
Extension: To make it harder, use number cards with dots to 20 rather than a dice. Turn the cards face down and take it in turns to turn them over. Cross off the number as you find it. Extension resources are attached.
