Balloon games

Balloons are endlessly fun to play with and a good way to help develop children’s hand-eye coordination. Set a timer and challenge your children to see how long they can keep a balloon off the ground for – this is great for practising balance and steadiness! You could also encourage team play skills by asking children to hit the balloon back and forth across a table or floor space.

Learning focus: Shape and symmetry: To identify acute and obtuse angles

In this lesson, you will recap on the names of different types of angles. We will be looking specifically at acute and obtuse angles today and exploring where they can be found. We will learn what makes an angle acute or obtuse and how they are different. We will learn to estimate and order angles and how to draw examples of both acute and obtuse angles, using the knowledge we have. We will practise with accuracy and precision when drawing angles.

Learning fous: Maths-How High is That?
Rulers and measuring tapes are surprisingly popular items that kids love to use. Before starting the game, have kids use the measurement tools to see how high one meter or 50 centimetres is so that they have a general idea of what length they’ll be talking about.

For an outdoor version of this game, use (according to the temperature!) snowballs or wet sponges. Have one child at a time throw their item at a wall or fence and have them guess how high the mark it made on the wall is from the ground. Record their guess and have the next child guess. Have the child who threw the item use the measuring tape or ruler to determine the actual height of the throw. Who was closest?

Indoors, follow the same process as above but with a moistened, not soaked, sponge. One tip from a mom who’s been there: while they may try to convince you otherwise, snowballs should really stay outside!
