We have been having great fun playing a ten pin bowling game to help us with our maths work in Year 1. The children took it in turns to bowl at the skittles, each of which were individually numbered. We then added together the two numbers of the skittles that we had managed to knock down.
As the game developed, the children became more confident in adding two digit sums, such as 6 + 5. We introduced techniques such as counting on to help with the sums. We finished off the session by bowling down three skittles and adding up the numbers. You can watch a short video of the Year 1 children adding up above.
