These Maths lesson ideas could, if broken down and developed further, cover work for a week or a fortnight. It is not expected that it would be relevant for all children to take part in all elements of the maths lesson, so aspects could be completed at different times during the day or week. Follow up by rotating groups of children around the suggested play activities.
