Summer learning

Hi everyone,

We wish all of you a happy summer holiday and hope that you have a fun and relaxing time. It is important to have a break but we have put together some extra activities as we know that some of you are keen to continue with catch up learning through the summer. If you didn’t manage to pick up a summer pack from school don’t worry, there are plenty of learning activities listed below.




Oak Academy choose from a wide variety of topics. No worksheets needed. Numbers 50-100, addition and subtraction and coins and time would be a priority.


Learning to use money is a great (and fun) way of practising a variety of number skills. You could set up a shop (for example a toy shop, a food shop or a café), pizza/other takeaway. Make price tags for the various items. Start with prices up to 10p.

Collect some coins. Ideally 10x1p, 10x2p, 10x5p, 10x10p.

Things to learn and activities:

Recognise and name all the coins and notes (make sure you can do this for both sides of the coin!). Scatter the coins on the floor, then find all the 2ps, all the 10ps etc. You could do some coin rubbings to help you learn.

Order the coins and notes according to their value.

Practise counting in 2s using 2ps; in 5s using 5ps and in 10s using 10ps.

Take turns at being customer and shop keeper, working out how much things cost and counting out the right amount of money (no contactless payments in this shop!) Start by buying 1 item, then choose 2 or more items to buy and find the total. Write a shopping list and then work out how much it will cost you. Work out all the different ways you could spend 10p in your shop.

Telling the time

Make the cut and stick clock from the summer pack. Use it to learn to tell the o’clock times. When you can do this move on to half past times.

Here are some telling the time games.

Minutes and hours

Use a timer to help you understand what a minute is. Set yourself some minute challenges. How many jumps can you do in 1 minute? How many beads can you thread? How many stones can you find?

The countdown clock

Understand that an hour is much longer! Find out about time by seeing how long things take to cook in the microwave or oven. Look at how long videos last on You Tube. Are you allowed to play on your iPad for an hour?


Links to different number bond games

Make up a target game using buckets hoops, or draw chalk targets etc. Put a number on each. Throw beanie toys. Add up your score. Who can get to 20 first? Start at 20, who can get to zero first? How many ways can you score 10? What’s the highest score you can get with three throws? Play dice games, ideas for (not computer) games here:


Practise counting objects in ones, twos, fives and tens. Count to 100. Count back from 20 to 0 then 30 to 0 etc. Count on and back between different numbers. Work out the missing numbers in a sequence e.g. 12, 10, __, __, 4, __, 0

Practise counting in 5s
