Let's buy an ice cream!   


Look at the ice creams on the downloadable Adventurers ice cream time! resource sheet below.  Get everyone in your house to choose one ice cream each.  What flavours do they want? 

Your job is to find out how much would it cost altogether. 

Easy method - use one pound coins only  New pound coin | The Royal Mint

Place 1 or 2 pound coins on the ice creams pictures you want to buy, then count all the pound coins you've put down to find the total cost.

Numicon method   Numicon Shapes 1-10 - EYFS Maths from Early Years Resources UK

If you have access to Numicon, place the 1 or 2 Numicon shapes on each ice cream you want to buy, then collect up the Numicon pieces - altogether do they cover another Numicon shape?

e.g. a 1 and a 2 will cover a 3, so a Rocket lolly (£1) and a Magnum (£2) would cost £3

Number track method   

Jump along the number track, 1 jump for £1, 2 jumps for £2.  What number do you land on?  There is a number track included in the ice cream resource sheet below. 

Then find the right money!

Are there any ice creams or lollies in your freezer? Role play ice cream shopping, £1 each!


I know some of you like doing worksheets, so I've added a Summer seaside maths activity booklet in the section below.

NB Not all activities will be suitable for all pupils, for example, the Number Comparison page is more challenging.
