To introduce and revise the numbers 1-100.
Grand Prix Worksheet, pencil, coloured pencils (optional)
Numbers 1-100 (You can focus on numbers which you think need particular revision)
- This worksheet can be used to teach any numbers from 1-100. You may decide to focus on numbers from 20-50 in one lesson (for example) and then 51-100 in another lesson, or on 10, 20, 30, etc in one lesson and then the numbers in between (21, 22, 23, etc) in another lesson. You can also use the worksheet at different stages of the year for revision and/ or assessment purposes.
- Introduce the numbers by writing them on the board and saying them as you write them. Get the children to repeat each number after you have written it and said it yourself.
- Check the children’s comprehension by writing a number on the board and getting them to say it. When the children become confident with this, go faster to make it more difficult.
Completing the Grand Prix Worksheet
- Hand out the worksheet and get the children to look at the illustration. Explain to the children that you are going to call out the numbers of the winning order of the Grand Prix race and that they are to write the numbers next to the cars in the order that they hear them (working backwards from the finishing line).
- Call out the numbers that you have chosen to focus on (in any order, but include some of the easier or more familiar numbers to give the children confidence). The children write the number next to the car as they hear it (figures only), working backwards from the finishing line (eg if the winning car is 59 it will be the first number you call out and the children write the number 59 in the space provided next to the car closest to the finishing line, and so on).
- When you have finished calling out the numbers, children can swap worksheets and the activity can be corrected as a class activity by asking the children to give you the winning order (in English). As each number is agreed upon the children can then correct their partner’s answer. You may also like to write the answers on the board to ensure that the children have understood the numbers correctly.
- Children can then colour the cars if there is time. This could also be set for homework, encouraging the children to revise the numbers as well as colouring the cars.
