This is part two of two parts. Here we look at numeracy activities that relate to Number knowledge. This includes:

  • Number sequence knowledge
  • Place value knowledge
  • Number facts knowledge

You can find numeracy activities that relate to Number Strategies on a different page.

You may already have downloaded this resource shown in the image above. If you haven’t and you want to click the link below:

These resources are filled with activities and ideas that you can use or adapt. But navigating them can be tricky. So we designed a cheat sheet.

Cheat Sheet for Number Knowledge Activities

Here’s how to use it. Just look down the list at the second column. This tells you in one sentence what learners actually have to do in the activity.

From there, you can look at the name of the activity, find the page number in the resource, and see which progressions it lines up with.

Things to remember:

  • Some activities cut across multiple progressions. This is fine. Just make sure you know what your focus is. Refer back to your learning outcomes.
  • These numeracy activities are specific to certain steps. Make sure that you know what step your learners are at first.
  • Not all the activities will be useful to you and your situation. If you do decide to take the time to look through these, you might want to rate them for yourself. In other words, can you use this?
  • You don’t have to use these. If you have your own ideas then go with that. But remember, if you need inspiration or want to look at activities that were written by experts then look here.

You can download the cheat sheets for all three strategy progressions as a single PDF below or just read on.
